Waypoints (0)

The last 10+ miles drive in to the trailhead you will need to drive slowly, maybe 20 mph with a regular car, since there is a gravel road with many potholes, some pretty deep. A pickup or SUV would be recommended.

Beautiful area, and the falls are just gorgeous! The upper trail isn’t that difficult speaking as an inexperienced and out of shape hiker, and it has some beautiful sights! Road was open, bathrooms are open, upper trail is rocky and slightly muddy...wear good hiking boots.

The road there was open, not too bad. Don’t follow AllTrails with google. Just follow the signs when you get closer. It’s easy to find. AWESOME! Both of the Falls were roaring. A little muddy in spots. A nice short Trail. Well worth the drive down. * No parking fee. * GPS works great. * Vault toilets at TH.

The road up was closed. I suppose you can park on the street and walk up to the trail. Not sure, but disappointed we couldn’t drive up.

Silver Falls trail is supposedly a loop with the water fall at the midpoint but you literally have to cross over the falls to continue the loop and after watching some people struggle with the crossing, I decided it wasn’t worth the risk of damaging my nice camera! And I hadn’t brought a back pack knowing it was a short hike. So ended up doing out and back out instead of the loop, which was just fine, too. Silver Falls is epic! So however you get up there and back, it’s worth it. Golden Falls trail is much easier, no incline, and just some rocks to scramble over at the very end. Even though Silver Falls trail is a bit more challenging (more consistent incline), it’s the better of the two waterfalls. But we did both in about an hour so may as well do each!

One of our new favorite places. The short hikes to both falls are gorgeous with all the foliage. The falls were incredible and fun to explore. Can’t wait to bring the extended family to do this one! Worth every second!

Completed 5/25/20. PROS: Easy climb with a beautiful waterfall. Great view from behind the waterfall- would recommend you climb to the top and behind- gorgeous! Also not very muddy until you get right next to the waterfall. CONS: couldn’t find the trail across the river- I’m sure it’s there just didn’t spend a lot of time looking- went around instead.

This waterfall is amazing and you get really close to it. I don't think a lot of people know about this place.

Great short hike to two beautiful waterfalls! Will definitely be back! Take the AllTrails directions or if you take the Apple Maps - just follow the signs once you see them.

Only use google maps until you start seeing signs, then follow the signs. If you do, it's a fairly easy straight forward drive. Avoid the potholes and you are good to go... The main bridge has been rebuilt, so you are free to explore without having to cross the creek the adventurous way. It's a short trail to either waterfall. But there is the upper trail that takes you to the top of the Golden Falls that is a little ways up and might be a challenge for some. This area is pretty spectacular and the trails are pretty nice! Worth the trip!

The hike itself was super short, but well worth it! Two different waterfalls with each trail only taking about 5/10 min to get to (one has a short and long hike, we took the short one do to time restraint) Trail was super muddy from recent rains but still easy to access. There we’re a lot of nats on the trail, but not too bothersome

Silver falls was super quick and easily accessible! There are stumps that take you across the creek to the Golden falls trail, take the left side of the fork to get to the top of the falls and right towards the bottom. However if you aren’t fond of bees, climbing the rocks at the bottom of Golden falls isn’t the most fun!

I would recommend Silver Falls as a dog friendly trail, however Golden Falls isn’t. Very rocky hike in. Both are absolutely breathtaking. The drive out is a huge part of the adventure. Beware of the one lane gravel road.
