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.

Went in mid Feb and it was rainy/snowing and muddy -- but oh so worth it.

All of the falls were amazing! It was a bit icy but so worth it even in the rain. I loved it! The actual trail is 8.7 miles also.

Trail was in good repair when we visited last April. Waterfalls were very active. A hike that doesn’t really feel like a hike, because there is so much natural beauty to see.

I’d rate it easy to moderate due to the length of the loop. It’s not too hard to make it all the way to 10 falls. I spent 4 hours for 10.4 miles. I stopped a lot for photos while hiking and amazingly there was snow in the early morning, so.. a plus for this “trip”. The trail is well-maintained as how people talk about it. Pretty muddy on Rim Trail (Winter Falls) but it’s worth it if you had a chance to visit all 10 falls.

This hike is beautiful, but I didn’t like it as much as I had hoped. This is, of course, based on the fact that I like to hike where the people aren’t. I recommend doing it, but I probably won’t do it again.

Always a good bet when I need a hike not too far from home. In the winter when the water is high, the falls are amazing.

Beautiful place to see some incredible waterfalls! The trail takes you behind at least 3 of the waterfalls. The trail is well maintained, slight mud were expected given there’s lots of moisture around. Great place for 1/2 day hikes and will be visiting again!

Got there later in the afternoon so thankfully we missed all the tourist hikers.
Great for my 2 year old but again just too popular of a site to go more than once every few years.

Great winter hike !!

I'd been to this trail several times during the summer, but never during the winter, and wow... go during the winter months! The trails aren't as packed, and the waterfalls are flowing with so much more water! Bring a waterproof jacket though because when you go under the falls the mists are so strong that you may get soaked. Excellent hike that I will keep going back to.

Absolutely amazing in every way, even when muddy and wet it was still fun to trail run. Just get ready to stop a lot, it’s breathtaking all throughout. I enjoyed starting at the North parking lot (not where this map leads you to) and running clockwise.

It’s one of the best hikes that I have done here in us.... this time of year around with the overcast, the forest for green and live and serene and beautiful... waterfalls were amazing and walk behind certain waterfalls makes you forget where you are

Have hiked this one multiple times, not crowded on weekdays or in the mornings. Would recommend taking two cars and parking one at the north parking lot and then starting at the South Falls lot and doing the loop that way. Parking is $5 or a state parks pass.
If hiking in the winter, the trail near and around the South Fall can be complete ice

Easy, and gorgeous

Amazing walk to see a variety of waterfalls, with multiple ones being able to walk behind (you do get a little wet). The walk itself is pretty easy and trail is super easy to follow. The cost into the park is now $5 but it’s definitely worth it

The parking fee is 5 dollars now, but still worth it!

Great hike! I didn't do the entire loop though. I took the Canyon Trail and cut across on the Winter Trail and then took the Rim Trail back. (to do the 7 mile loop, you do the Canyon and Rim trails). The way I did it was a 5 mile loop and I saw 8 of the 10 waterfalls. So even if you cut it short, you'll still see them!

I went in November and the fog hung in the air even into the afternoon, making for awesome pictures and a more somber/peaceful experience. Go on a weekday to avoid crowds, and start in the morning if you can. In the fall, definitely bring warm clothes and hats, mittens, etc!

The trail is rated as moderate, but with the slight elevation gain (other online sources say only 800 feet), I'd rate it as easy. There are steep sections, especially one place going down to Lower South Falls, but there are stairs and handrails here.

Parking is $2.00 for an all day pass. Totally worth it!

I loved this hike and recommend it to families with slightly older kids. As well as anyone who likes to hike but isn't looking to overexert themselves.
