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.

This is a nice hike/stroll. It's a pretty easy hike and is designed for mass amounts of tourists. I went during the week and still encountered a lot of people. The waterfalls are beautiful and the trail brings you past streams and big old growth trees. If you're looking to be in the wilderness with a wild feel, this is not the trail for you. If you want a very well maintained "park" feel, then you will enjoy this hike.

Great hike. Be sure to go in the wetter months so the waterfalls are more than dribbles.

Easy hike, awesome waterfalls (too bad people cant swim in them). The park is pretty crowded on a warm day.

IF YOU ARE A DOG LOVER DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!! Drove an hour and a half to find out the Trail of 10 Falls is extremely NOT dog friendly, with signs posted literally every 10 feet and a chain link fence to separate the other dog friendly trail from it. Wasted $5 on parking for an hour at the only dog friendly waterfall (Upper North Falls, like a 0.2 mile walk) for 1 picture and finding out there is absolutely no access to any of the falls from the dog friendly path (which is also literally 10-15 feet from the highway so not at all worth it.) On a 95° day this was extremely frustrating! I will NOT be back without my dogs to do the 10 Falls trail regardless of how beautiful it is or how badly I want to based on principle alone regarding this ridiculous rule. I would honestly love to know what animal-related incident ruined this experience for ALL dogs and their owners-- even super friendly, well behaved pups. By far the worst hiking experience I've ever had in Oregon. I've been on some pretty treacherous, heavily trafficked, questionable trails and never had an issue taking my dogs on any of them.

Nice hike, lots of bang for your buck waterfall wise, would be great for kids. Still feels like a park (because it is) lacks that secluded one with nature feel, beautiful none the less.

One of the best hiking trails I've ever walked. Even the drive up there was amazing. I suggest taking the scenic route through the farming towns and vineyards. We actually took it by mistake but it turned out great. It only adds another half hour to the trip from Portland.

This is a beautiful hike. Lots of waterfalls and a couple caves. We went on a weekday early morning to beat the crowds. Start at the South Falls. Parking is $5. Take water and snacks as there is none available on the trail. If you plan on doing the full trail, pets aren't allowed on the Canyon or Rim trails. There are some steep sections and stairs but they aren't bad. We clocked our hike at 8.75 miles.
