This is only a nature walk. No waterfalls on this side near the campground. It’s a good long walk from parking lot to get to this trail. But if you’re looking for an easy hike, this is for you.

Easy hike to go with family or friends if you have plans in the afternoon but want to go out in the morning. Stunning views along the way really elevate the light walking you'll be doing. Worth the trip out.

I went on this hike today with the intention of completing the trail of ten falls but had to cut it short due to downpours of rain I wasn't dressed appropriately for. I managed to see the south falls and some others before cutting it short. Walking behind this fall was amazing - there were orange moss growing on the lava based rocky surface behind the fall which was surreal. Sights of autumn leaves on trees opposite the fall is amiably clear and perfectly present.

Very easy and beautiful- continue to lower South falls and you'll have a good workout back up

Unique hike with the walk behind waterfalls. We liked lower South Falls as it was less crowded and you are closer to the water.

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.
