Fantastic hike! You access the trail through the Ohanapecosh campground, but you’ll see the road into the campground is closed. You are allowed to park in the side of the road and walk in, since it is still open. It’s an easy hike with slight elevation changes here and there. Gorgeous views of the falls!!!!

Great Hike! Some blow down but very manageable. Quite a few other hikers but trail is very wide and easy to pass. We put in at Ohanapecosh Campgrounds which were closed but short walk to trailhead.

The road is close campgrounds are close. we hiked in anyways and it didn't disappoint us. we started at the campground and walked in and took silve falls trail . pass the hot springs to the falls was much better than taking the path by the bridge. we went in by the bridge and it was alot of elevation and challenges with down trees we came out the other side and it was a easy one .

This hike was awesome. We started from the ohanapecosh campground (walk in). Took a small side trail and saw cool hot springs at the beginning. I did this hike alone with three kids under ten and two dogs. Everyone loved it.

This was my first hike in Rainier and it did not disappoint me one bit at all. Beautiful plants/fungi and streams of water. Silver falls was amazing and captivating. Definitely on my top of the list when I come back again.

Saw lots of different mushrooms on the trail. And some beautiful trees. Crossed a few bridges and got a great view of the falls. Turned around after crossing the bridge that goes over the river. Ended up being a little over a 2 mile hike. Easy trail with a little elevation gain.

Lovely trail!! Can easily combine this trail with Grove of the Patriarchs (connects by crossing a road between the two). We went very slowly stopping and taking lots of photos.

Loved it! Great forest trails and bridges! Nice combination of ups & down that the kids were able to do it without too much complaining. The Silver Falls was awesome! The kids decided if we were mermaids that we would choose the lagoon as our home! Spectacular views on both sides of the viewing bridge of the falls.

Although it was difficult to find parking, this short and easy hike was enjoyable. My lady and I took lots of pics. This is a colorful hike, as stated in the other reviews. The water fall is beautiful. Be careful on the rocks by the waterfall because they are wet and you can slip.

So so pretty and a must on any visit to the Mt. Rainier area. The entire trail is picturesque and shaded with beautiful colors everywhere you look.

Great hike. A little shorter than the 4 miles listed in the description. I recorded 3.4 and that was with a couple scrambles down to the river and a quick trip up a side trail to the hot springs. Surprisingly not that busy - started around 2:30 PM on a Saturday in mid-August. My 5 and 4 year-olds had no issues and loved it. Will definitely do again!

amazing hike with gorgeous views. plenty of photographic opportunities... if you're patient. lots of people getting their picture taken with breath taking scenery. we only found one mosquito, so the bugs weren't a problem at all. the ups and downs were very mild, would like to come back again soon.

Shorter than 4 miles it’s more like 3, but very pretty well maintained trial. Definitely a good one if you have little ones. Very pretty too, great trail over all.

Beautiful trail through old forest. Lots of roots so watch your footing. Best view of the Falls is to cross the bridge down from the falls (Silver falls loop trail) and climb up to the top of the railing.

The Silver Falls Loop trail from the campground is a nice easy walk. The woods are nice and the falls I would rate a 3 out of 5 for scenery. I have a major complaint about disrespectful people who climb all over the falls and go off trail. It degrades the natural beauty of the scenery and prevents people from getting a photo without someone’s butt in the way or some hairy chested guy in the photo.
