Silver Falls Outdoor Adventure

The first stop of the day will be at&#xa0;Willamette Falls. This&#xa0; is a horseshoe-shaped block waterfall caused by a basalt shelf in the river bottom. The 42-foot-high and 1,500-foot-wide falls occurs 26 river miles upstream from the Willamette’s confluence with the Columbia River. It’s the largest waterfall by water volume in the Northwest and the 18th largest by volume. Around the falls are the locks, which are the oldest continuously operating multi-lift lock and canal system in the United States.<br><br>Next we will make our way to Silver Falls State Park.&#xa0;&#xa0;This area was settled originally by the&#xa0;Kalapuyan Indians. They most likely used the area for hunting, as well as for spirit quests.&#xa0;A small town was established in the Silver Falls area, although it was abandoned by the time the park was created in 1933.<br><br>While you are here you will be able to hike part of the Trail of Ten Falls (approximately 3 miles, further if you are able) and some of the waterfalls you may see are:<br><br>South Falls-&#xa0;This&#xa0;is the highlight of Silver Falls State Park, and due to its proximity to the city of Salem, is likely one of the most popular waterfalls in Oregon outside of the Columbia River Gorge. The falls are produced where South Silver Creek plunges 177 feet over a huge overhanging basalt cliff with a large pool occupying the bottom of the amphitheater.<br><br>North Falls- The massive recess behind North Falls is especially unique and a favorite feature of visitors to the park. The undercut cliff extends back from the falls for at least 100 feet, and the ceiling runs anywhere from 20 to perhaps as much as 75 feet above the trail as it passes behind the falls. The huge size of the under cut chamber allows the roar of the falls to be amplified considerably, making the falls sound quite powerful.<br><br>Twin Falls- During the wet season North Silver Creek splits into two channels and spills down an angled basalt ledge, creating two veiling curtains.<br><br>Middle North Falls- This is a markedly amorphous waterfall which changes physical shape in a very dramatic way as the volume of water in North Silver Creek changes. The 106 foot tall falls take the form of a narrow column of water during the summer months, funneled to perhaps 5 feet wide at most by a narrow runnel in the bedrock.&#xa0;<br><br>Double Falls- Double Falls is the tallest waterfall in Silver Falls State Park – by a hair – and also the best of the handful of tributary waterfalls found along the Trail of Ten Falls.<br><br>Drake Falls- Rumbles over a broad sloping ledge of basalt set in the middle of a fairly deep, narrow constriction in the canyon of North Silver Creek.<br><br>Lower North Falls- &#xa0;North Silver Creek produces the falls as it rumbles down a 30-foot tall dome-shaped protrusion of basalt and forms a large pool at its base. The domed shape of the falls inspired the nickname “The Thunderdome” among the whitewater kayaking community.&#xa0;<br><br>At the end of the day we will drop you at your downtown Portland hotel.&#xa0;

Had some family and friends in town and decided to visit the Trial Distilling tasting room. From the moment we walked in the experience was such fun. Met Steve who could not have been more helpful. Tried the flight of the spirits they make and enjoyed them all - even the rum (not a fan of rum in general). Was given a tour of where the magic happened, was a blast

The front tasting room is large enough for a group, but also friendly enough to taste a flight of spirits with just you and the owner behind the counter. Fabulous gin and vodka! Jerry was a great guy to talk to and if possible, it is well worth a tour of the back. The picture is of the still, which is gorgeous enough to be a work of art! Sign up for their mailing list. They are currently hosting a cocktail creation competition 👍

For those who enjoy going to vineyards and taprooms, I suggest a stop at the Trail Distilling tasting room. Their First City Vodka and Trillium Gin are both craft distilled spirits. I am especially fond of the Trillium gin and had the best gin and tonic ever at their tasting room. Owners/staff are friendly and gave us some great background on the finer points of distilling spirits.
