Hike is about 8.7 miles if you explore the entire loop. Truly a beautiful hike. more easy than moderate, although a few spots have quite a few steps and some points of rapid elevation. Started at the south entrance as suggested and traffic was light once we got going on the trail. Definitely worth it.

Definitely start this hike early!! It gets incredibly busy towards late-morning/mid-day. Also recommend starting at the North end trail-head. You won’t hit much traffic until you reach the last 3-4 miles of the trail. You can also hike down to a few of the waterfalls for a swim! Trail is lined with strawberries/blackberries/raspberries most of the way, so the smell is amazing in the summer! Do be prepared for a nice little hike up a decent amount of stairs.

Get there early. We started at the North end at 9am and it was not crowded. By the time we hit the South end about 11am, it was packed. We continued on to do the loop. Beautiful hike and well worth, you can walk behind most of the falls. When it gets crowded, it is hard for everyone to fit behind the falls though.
One after another, we could not stop taking pictures through the Old growth forests. It is a moderate hike, with switchbacks.

I love this hike! The south falls can get a bit crowded but it’s worth it. I starting hiking at 8am and didn’t run into too many people!

Trail of Ten Falls ~ Silver Falls State Park

Absolutely incredible hike today with Marcus and Arianna, had a blast with all the falls! We started at the South Falls TH and right out the gate South Falls is 177 ft, this will be the beginning point of our ten-mile journey. Next stop is the Lower South Falls, this 93 ft gem is cool and allows you to go behind the falls for some cool pictures. Another 1.25 miles down the trail brings us to the Lower North Falls that is only 30 ft tall and feels less impressive after the first two but still cool. Next stop hung a quick left before crossing a bridge to find ourselves ready for a break and hitting Double Falls. One of my personal favorites of the day and the tallest waterfall of the day. This beauty was 178 ft tall and you can walk right up to the base for some cool pictures, worth checking out. Next up crossed the bridge to Drake falls and was my least favorite of the day, cool viewing platform but you can’t see much of the 27 ft falls. Middle North Falls is our next stop and it’s 106 ft falls and wasn’t chained off today so pretty cool site! At this point we are so into seeing all the falls we didn’t notice how far we have come, we are about halfway on the journey already. Twin Falls is only 31 ft tall but pretty cool how they split in two and makes for some good pictures. Next up is a mile to the North Falls and it’s 136 ft tall with a Volcanic Cave behind it, tied for my favorite of the day. This spot was amazing to stop and have lunch and cool off, incredible cave behind the falls, makes for some great pictures and people watching. Heavily trafficked area at this point we are close to the next parking lot. Sit down and take a look at this crazy formation of Volcanic Rock above you and brittle rock eroding below you, super impressive and worth a trek back here someday. Pass through the hundreds of people parking and viewing the falls, Upper North Falls is 65 ft and the last one before we head back. Pretty cool spot to stop for a minute and rest, watched a couple dogs swimming at the bottom of the falls having a great time. At this very moment we are 6.7 miles in at 2 hours and 56 minutes with an average 20-minute mile, not bad considering we are enjoying every site we can. Heading back to the last falls of the day was Winter Falls, it’s 134 ft fall but was not active at this time of the year. Barely a trickle over the rocks so we didn’t make the trek down based on all the disappointed faces coming out of the canyon lol. Last leg of the day for 3 miles with no falls was a nice hike, I had an absolute blast with my kids.

Beautiful setting. Nicely procured pathways, although you'll want to watch your step! Be prepared for mud & mist. Many photo ops and as beautiful as you could ask for! Would LOVE to go back and finish the 10!

Walked the full 7.6 mile trail.
Friday was pretty busy in the area near South Falls, less do near a North falls. Very quiet in the backcountry. Still lots of water in the falls and perfect temp at 70.

Beautiful! Spring is a wonderful time to visit thed falls as they are running strong! Could miss the Rim Trail portion...too close to the road.

Amazing waterfalls
took around 3.5 hours for entire loop

If you're looking for some awesome waterfall views, the Columbia River Gorge is much better!

Beautiful hike. Went to 3 different waterfalls on this hike. Then drove to upper north falls. The scenery is breath taking.

Great hike, started at the North Falls TH, it was much busier at the South Falls area but still manageable for the weekend before July 4th. Great trail system allowing the opportunity to get close enough for great iPhone photos in front of and behind the big waterfalls and simply just to see so many falls on one trail. What a great experience as we were able to hike with 3 generations of the family.

Just okay. Tourist ridden and overly crowded in my opinion . Good for families w/ kids. Serious hikers will be disappointed.

So beautiful here! Make sure to bring shoes with good traction, When you get around the falls it gets a bit slippery. Great hiking trail for the family.

Such a nice hike, not too crowded surprisingly, ran into a group maybe once every 20 minutes, and my group went around 1pm 6/28/18. Lots of shade, and lots of places to take little swim breaks if needed. The waterfalls are stunning and it’s amazing to see all the fantastic work the CCC did so long ago, and the ever changing scenery around the waterfalls is so cool! Very moderate too, not much up-and-down or steep changes.

Hands down the most beautiful hike I’ve ever done. Made the 7.1 mile trek in September 2017. 9/10 waterfalls were rushing. The entire trail was a mixture of summer and fall and it was breathtaking.

Go early or you will run into a ton of traffic! Beautiful trail. Recommend starting at the North Falls TH.

Go early in the day because this place gets busy!
It’s a beautiful hike, we did it with kids and if they stay away from the cliffs edges you shouldn’t have a problem. Absolutely a must see hike with all the gorgeous falls. We loved it

This was a bucket list trail for me to hike and it was amazing! The waterfalls were breathtaking as was the trail and trees. It is 8.7 miles-pretty easy trail to hike.

Such a beautiful hike! An absolute must! A great hike all year long!

the only thing that beats this Trail is doing the whole trail of ten Falls

this is one of the most beautiful hiking trails in the world and I'm privileged to say I was married here

Nice hike. Long, but nice.

Absolutely incredible! I got here at around 08:00 on a Monday morning and started at north falls instead of south. That way I didn’t hit much traffic until about 10:45!

Beautiful trail! Always a breath of fresh air.

great moderate intensity 9.2 mile hike with 10 awesome waterfalls , many amazing trees , mangroves, and an abundance of wildlife .
bring a snack, plenty of water , and maybe some trekking poles , they definitely were a huge assistance in the last 3rd of our hike. We went counter clockwise (canyon to rim) and the rim trail is a bit of elevation change .
