Beautiful park with lovely waterfalls
Apr 2021 • Couples
We hiked the 3 mile loop to see 2 waterfalls. Then we drove to another parking lot to hike about a 1/2 me each way to the WInter Falls one. Lots of ups and downs, steps and uneven surfaces , but not too steep or scary. Well worth the views. So funny to go behind the Falls, too, to see "the backside of water". Benches or rock's to rest on if you get tired.

Meh. Used to be cool.

So much graffiti and trash everywhere (especially littered masks), bathrooms are gross and rarely serviced. Too many unwelcoming signs telling you to wear a mask outside, which makes no sense anyway. Thanks, Oregon State Parks, for completely abdicating your responsibility in maintaining “Oregon’s crown jewel” and providing a healthy space for the public.

Awesome views and spectacular location.

Such a beautiful state park with lots of history! Make sure you read ALL the plaques to know more about the CCC and how the state park came to be! All the waterfalls accompanied with the fantastic paths were well constructed.

A birthday weekend side trip worth making!
Aug 2020 • Couples
We made a side trip to Silverton and Drake’s Crossing for the Silver Falls State Park which contains ten waterfalls in relatively close proximity to each other. It was a hot Summer day on August fourth with virtually no breeze but it was well worth the trip for the beauty and the gorgeous views of South Falls. While we could not afford the time to view other adjacent falls of which there are nine we very much enjoyed the South Falls and wading in the water before it goes into those falls. We did not walk under the Falls as you can on this trip or walk the entire trip to the bottom as we have in milder weather. It was time exceedingly well spent and the view of the fir trees and the falls are majestic. There is a lodge that sells ice cream cones, drinks and sandwiches but the quality of the ice cream has gone downhill since my last visit and is more like a tasteless vanilla or chocolate or swirled combo cone of ice milk rather than the creamy tasty ice cream I remember and I would not recommend the current reincarnation compared to that of days of old. Parking is only five dollars a day making it a bargain day trip during coronavirus for the whole family and we saw many families attending! Highly recommended and we look forward to visiting it again soon!

Unbelievable waterfalls in a temperate rainforest

The geology was super cool too. I went twice within my two week trip. Beautiful. You are in shade on 90% of the hike.

Worth the stop to see 1 of more falls
Aug 2020
Great hike to see 2 of the falls. you can do a short hike to see the south falls or longer hike of 3 miles to see this falls and next falls downstream. Walk behind both of them. Several hundred feet of drop in this walk that you will be walking back up.

Shorter winter loop trail
Aug 2020 • Family
Exceptionally beautiful and easy hike. We did 8 falls since we heard several were already dry in August. We started at Winter trail parking lot. It was so fun to walk behind the falls. Trails were within mossy trees. Our hike was over 5 miles instead of 7 miles. Definitely recommend.

fairly nice hike among the trees and the upper and lower falls were pretty and you could even hike behind the upper one!

we drove here from our KOA campground but if we knew there was a campground on site...we would have camp here ! beautiful sites and dry camping - the campgrounds were packed and tents and RVs there.

the hikes were gorgeous and very doable even in tennis shoes but we wore hiking boots. the waterfalls are pretty and just seeing the Christmas tree farms on route was a bonus!

though the 'cafeteria ' and lodge was closed due to covid ...we wore masks on the trails and about 45% of the people there had masks on the narrows trails, unfortunately.

Awesome State Park and Great Campground
Jul 2020
Tent camped a couple nights in the campground and walked the Trail of Ten Falls one day. Some of the waterfalls along this trail are amazing. It was really neat to be able to walk behind a couple of them. This trail takes 4-6 hours so pack water and food if you do it. We were there on a weekday and the trail wasn't too crowded. I could see it having a lot of people on a holiday or weekend, though.

Our campsite was large and under some very tall trees and had a small creek running behind it. The camp host also was very helpful. This state park is definitely one to visit.

Oregon Treasure!
Jul 2020 • Couples
We actually did the entire 10 mile hike to all 10 waterfalls on a busy Saturday. We wore masks in areas with other visitors and went without when we were on the trails alone with our foursome.

The trail is in very good shape and has an elevation gain of around 1,150 feet. Some think the trail is only 8 miles but our two separate GPS devices were showing 10 miles. Remember to bring water and snacks, no water on the trail unless you purify stream water.

The falls are stunning, majestic, misty, awe inspiring and magical. Well worth the visit.
