A trail in Silver Falls State Park past 10 beautiful waterfalls, perfect for the whole family. This casual hike through a beautiful canyon in Oregon's largest State park takes you past ten beautiful waterfalls ranging in height from 27 feet to 178 feet and 4 of them you can even walk behind. There are plenty of benches to rest at and the trail is extremely well maintained, perfect for the whole family. The park itself is 9,000 acres and contains over 24 miles of trails for biking and hiking.

Wonderful trail, very easy. Parked at North Falls and went counter clockwise starting with Canyon Trail. This was a good idea as it was less crowded and you hit South Falls lodge for a nice break and snack after the heavier parts of the trail. The actual mileage is 8.7 and we were right about 9. If you have more than that, it's not All Trails, it's someone not practicing #leavenotrace and going off the trails or doing the side trails such as Maple Ridge, Winter Falls etc. Also, if you can't enjoy this beautiful trail without a cigarette, please do not come! Got there around 10 am and was very quiet. Left at 2 to a very busy, full parking lot.

Wonderful trail. Easy, most people could do this hike, it just might take them some time. Clearly marked, took us 2 hours with lots of stops for pictures.

Great place to trail run! It was an easy trail. A couple of dried waterfalls during this time of year, but still sooo worth it! Go earlier in the day so that there are less people on the trail. I loved it!

This trail is mostly under tree canopy. It’s well maintained. Parking was easy; you can pay the $5 by cash or card. Lots of people on the Canyon Trail but I didn’t encounter too many folks while on the Rim Trail part of the loop. So many waterfalls! If you’re used to hikes in Oregon you might think this is more easy than “moderate”.

Great, easy hike. We got in exactly 8 miles in less than 2.5 hours with multiple stops. Beautiful waterfalls, clear skies. No crowds at all, though given it was a Wednesday early afternoon, not surprised.

Usually amazing and a favorite but lots of field burning nearby made it Smokey today. May be worth some research ahead of time

Absolutely gorgeous. Being able to hike behind falls was especially cool.

Great hike.! Beautiful Falls! Trail less crowded the farther you get from the main fall.

Stunning. We went on a week day and I would say moderately trafficked. More so as the day went on. But man, worth every mile. It was one of the most beautiful Hikes I have ever done. If you are in the area and can handle a few hours of hiking, do the whole trail for sure.

4 of the falls were dried up this time of year (August) But the others were beautiful. I’d definitely recommend starting earlier in the day to beat the crowds. Overall awesome hike.

Great trail, lots of foot traffic (holiday weekend), moderate, probably 8-9 miles. Several options to make the hike a couple miles longer or shorter. A few portions seem to be stroller friendly for little out-and-back hikes.

Closer to ten miles but easy to follow and beautiful. The detour for the upper north falls is worth it. Parking was easy. The last mile or so is not particularly exciting.

This place is amazing. So many waterfalls in one hike. Truly a must do. It’s easy to difficult some spots are flat but some are uphill but very worth it. Spectacular views!!!

First ran east on the Rim Trail to the Upper North Falls, then back west on the Canyon Trail. Running that way, you get a nice long descent through the canyon, and the falls get progressively more and more incredible!

Absolutely beautiful! We all definitely exceeded 10 miles on this hike to see all 10 falls, recorded on separate devices. We took the Canyon Trail in starting at the Lodge and South falls and then worked our way to Upper North falls and back Via the Rim Trail stopping at each one on the way. Bring extra water and snacks for sure. Arrive early for good parking and skip Winter Falls in August.

We did the “smaller loop” with 8 falls instead of 10 and it was great! So many beautiful spots, fairly easy hike but my Fitbit said it was 9 miles vs the listed 7.5 (I didn’t connect to my phones gps so that could be part of the mismatch). We climbed down some rocks/tree trunks off the trail a couple of times to feel the water and even jumped in at one of them (it was super cold but fun and worth it). We went in July in late morning; crowded but not too packed after the first few falls. Would definitely recommend and would do again!

August 19th 2019 - we started at 11AM, avrg crowded. We did the 10fall trails, starting from South falls to the fartest North falls. the upper path totally worths it but if available skip the return path as it is side to asde with the road... no waterfall on the return. Winterfall was very dry as well as another one due to time of the year. Very well worth stopping in this park for the hikes, stunning views and canyon heights
