Nestled in the lower elevation of Oregon's Cascade Mountains lies a temperate rain forest. It is here that the Trail of Ten Falls can be found. The trail and the falls descend to a forest floor covered with ferns, mosses, and wildflowers. You will also find stands of Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar. While thousands visit the park every year, it is large enough for you to find quiet places to sit and watch for birds.

The snow today was great for snow-skates and experienced skiers. Not so forgiving for newbies...

Moving from Colorado to Salem soon. This was our checking out Salem trip. What a beautiful hike not so far away from the city. Nature at it best! There were not so many people when we started at around 8. We did around 9.5 miles to compete the loop. Will definitely go again and again!

Was able to walk right up to the base. It was beautiful. Got a bit wet but so worth it! Went early and had no congestion at all!

Worth the drive to see this one! #50waterfallsby50

A part of the whole Silver Falls series and a great one. Loved the sounds and sites that this trail provided! #50waterfallsby50

We loved this hike. The day was cold and wet, but if you dress accordingly you will be fine. There is a five dollar fee to park. The waterfalls are breathtaking and the hike itself was not too difficult. We did do the entire loop, and at times were the only ones on the trail.

Started at North Falls and took Rim to Canyon. With exploring, got 10.3 miles. Started with ice pellets, then turned into a downpour of big fluffy snow flakes. By the time I got to South Falls, the sun was out. Being a winter Tuesday, only saw a couple people on the trail. Great day! Easy hike - you can’t get lost. Beeeautiful!!!

I've lived in Oregon my entire adult life and just got around to this hike. I'm glad I did it once. River crossings behind waterfalls are just a really unique experience. It's a classic Oregon hike, moss and old growth galore. That said, it's not a hike for solitude. Even on a rainy day in January, there were at least 100 people in the trail. I can't imagine what you'd find on a summer day or a holiday. As of yesterday, there were lots of deep puddles and some mud, but overall, no big deal.

I started this trail from the Conference area at 4:00am so for about 3.5 hrs. it was dark. Some parts of the trail were hard to piece together when doing the whole 21.1 mile loop. I went when it was nasty out; Windy, rainy, cold... It snowed on the higher elevations and a lot of the Trail had 6” or more water on it. A lot of the rain water was pooling or running down parts of the Trail. Parts of Buck Mtn. Loop and enough mud to eat your whole shoe. But it was still FUN! From the Conference area I started the trail just past the Dining Hall. Go across the bridge and up the ‘T’. I went RIGHT following the Equestrian Loop (what I thought was ‘Cut Off Trail’). on their maps the was called ‘Old Maple Trail’. When I got to the next ‘T’ to ‘Buck Mtn. Loop’ I went LEFT (this is where I made my only wrong turn, I should of went right). I followed the signs (which were easy to follow even in the dark). Took ‘Buck Mtn. Loop’ to ‘Perimeter Trail’ to ‘Canyon Trail’. From here just follow all the signs. Be sure to stop by all the Waterfalls and take in the views. Follow ‘Canyon Trail’ past South Falls to the Park Area. From here (I ran around for like 15min trying to find the connection) you take the ‘Bike Path’ which connects you to the Campground. Go through the campground (I know, it was hard to connect them, there were no real directions) to the road. To the LEFT there is a sign across the street with an arrow for ‘Rackett Ridge Connector Trail’ but the trail head has no real sign (had to ask a Park Ranger for directions) before you get to the ‘T’ in the road the ‘Rackett Ridge Connector Trail’ starts to the right. It crosses the road and continues, it follows the road for a bit the head back into the forest. You run to a cross trail, keep going straight. You run partly up a Fire Road to another ‘T’. Go LEFT then you follow the signs (I took ‘Howard Creek Trail’ back) to go back to the Conference area. My GPS was off on the mileage, probably cause I missed that first turn. * Parking Fee. * GPS works. (Verizon & AT&T only) * Depending where on the trail the are toilets.

We started at the Stone Circle trailhead, working our way counterclockwise. It was dumping rain and made for muddy conditions, but we had a very pleasant time. This loop passes seven waterfalls. Don't forget the detour to Double Falls. Middle North Falls is spectacular! Taking the path towards it makes for great views. It leads into an alcove which is perfect for break. To complete the loop, follow the Winter Falls Trail to the Rim Trail and back to the Stone Circle.

This is a beautiful walk. I say walk because there is a clear wide path with smaller ones that can branch out. I went when it was a bit damp and still had fun, wasn't too much mud.

it was amazing hike! I loved how we can go behind the falls sometimes!
