Winter Falls Loop is located in Silver Falls State Park, near Silverton, Oregon and features seven waterfalls. This is a slightly shorter version of the Trail of Ten Falls.

It’s been a decade since I’ve been here. I definitely was blown away by how much I missed the first time. Can’t wait to come back and see more!

Really nice hike with very mild ups and downs. Great falls to check out, and the moss is beautiful! One note is that it says no dogs on trails and there were a lot. Please respect the no dog signs to protect wildlife and other hikers!

Lovely hike with some stupendous waterfalls!

We hiked the trail counter clockwise as recommended by our ranger . This hike has lots of ups and downs and rocks on trail. The water falls were great .

Great hike to trail run. I did this trail in the morning in 35F while it was raining. The combo of rain, sweat, and waterfall mist resulted in me getting soaked, but the scenic waterfalls, rapids, and rainforest were well worth the cold and muddy conditions.

great trail to do during the winter with the snow keeps you off the mountain. went clockwise from winter falls trailhead with the plan of saving all the falls for the second half which was a great plan! Completed this trail 8 months pregnant without trouble. Took the inclines slow and steady but overall it was a very gentle hike. Great conditions, wide path. The path splits off in different places it keeping on "canyon trail" should take you on an exactly 5mile loop.

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.

Got here too late in the day to do the full ten falls trail so walked this loop instead. perfect winter trail, only one spot at lower South falls where the water was wall to wall behind the falls and about ankle deep. you can use some well placed rocks to step over the puddle but some families with small children had to turn around. lots of people, but still can get some time to yourself on the trail on a Friday afternoon.

This trail doesn’t need anymore good reviews. But I’ll add that this is one of the most spectacular places in Oregon. The lush forest is delightful in the cool damp fall. Take it in!

Great trail with good signage. Day after Thanksgiving parking was free! Northern parts were especially icy and areas under waterfalls were covered in a half inch layer of ice - beautiful and treacherous!

Early morning run. A few muddy spots to hop around, but otherwise spectacular!
