Did the South falls hike today at Silver Creek Falls state park and it was beautiful this time a year. Been here before but it has been several years and I forgot how beautiful this place was!!

The mist was amazing and radiating from the South falls like a hot shower on a cold night. I just hope I don't catch pneumonia........Lol, but it would be worth it(:

This is such a quick fun hike! Doesn't take too long and is always worth the trip hear round. There are many spots that have stairs or difficult terrain, but its a good starting out hike for those near salem oregon.

Winter Falls loop was about 5.4 miles and gorgeous on a sunny fall day. Wore Merrill trail sneakers and felt fine. Mostly flat but there is a fairly longer climb towards the end... equivalent to about 35 floors according to my health app. If you're looking for a medium level hike this is a good choice. Just over an hour.

make sure to visit all the waterfalls- South and North loop- to get the most out of this hike, they are all beautiful! took about 5 hours including lunch and picture breaks to hike through it all.

Nice easy hike with our dogs Thunder and Ukiah. We took the Rim Trail which is pretty much the only trail at Silver Falls State Park that allows pets. We started at the South Falls and worked our way to the Stone Circle. From there, we took the Rim Trail. The Rim trail is ok not much to see until you reach the Upper North Falls trail. At the junction, leave the Rim Trail and hike .2 miles on the Upper North Falls trail until you reach your destination. If you take the Rim Trail, the Upper North Falls is the prize at the end. Nice view of the falls! It was a warm summer day so there were a lot of hikers coming and going.

My husband and I hiked from Upper North Falls to the Upper South Falls. It was a beautiful day and a great hike. This hike took us about 5hrs including rest stops and photo stops. You definitely want to be in good shape to walk this whole loop but is well worth it. You catch all but one water fall this hike.
