The largest state park in Oregon, Silver Falls State Park hosts mountain bikers, horseback riders, and hikers.

South Falls is the most popular set of waterfalls, but the highest cascade is the 54 m (178 ft) tall Double Falls.

  • If you have time for only one thing - do this. Go to the North entrance of Silver Falls and do both mini hikes. You'll find yourself up close and personal with Mother Nature and the POWER OF WATER... ...  more »
  • Beautiful park. It was all so perfect. We took 2 short hikes and saw the best waterfalls. The trails were spectacular - well maintained and the ferns, flowers, trees coated in moss... Totally magical!  more »
  • This was a great park for family hiking. There is a short walk to the south falls from the day use lot if you just want a quick hike, or keep going to the lower south falls and back for about a 2-2.5 mile hike or do the larger loops. There's an option for whatever distance you'd like. You can walk behind many of the Falls which was so cool! Theres a playground by the parking lot with picnic tables and a public restroom. Day use fee is $5.00 but they have a machine to pay in the lot.
  • Absolutely beautiful state park. If you're in the Oregon area, the place is worth at least one visit. We stayed at one of the pet-friendly cabins with our dog and cat. The cabin itself is quite small with only a heater as far as appliances go, but we still thought it was worth it. Beds were uncomfortable, but not a big deal when staying only a night or two. Rangers were friendly and very helpful. The highlight of the trip was, of course, the main trail which featured a variety of waterfalls. We only walked about a quarter of the trail (the northern section) but thoroughly enjoyed what we saw. The falls were all beautiful but Middle North Falls was particularly awe-inspiring with how massive it was, especially since you're able to walk behind it. We went in the winter. The rain did make the trails a bit muddy, but on the upside there were very few other people camping. I'm unsure how popular the park gets during the summer, but I'm glad we were able to appreciate the place without crowds.
