If you are visiting the Willamette Valley, or live in Oregon but have never been here, Silver Falls is a must-see. Stunning views throughout, easy-moderate hikes but be sure to wear good hiking shoes. Trail gets slippery in the rain so always be cautious. There is a visitor center/gift shop where you can get maps or you can get trail maps off their website. Excellent parking and restroom facilities.

It was a cold rainy November weekend. What possessed us to go to Sliverton then is a long story but had a happy ending.It was such miserable weather we decided to take a drive to Sliver Falls State park, just to do something and stay dry. We ended up staying the afternoon.

It was fairly protected in there from the winds and the rain had lightened up to where we hiked in and saw 3 waterfalls. The South falls is amazing! You can walk behind it and the paths are well constructed and maintained. After our invigorating walk we came up to the very charming lodge that was built in the 30's by the CCC and there was a giant fire roaring in the fire place to greet us. It was like coming home. There were 2 volunteers in the lodge happy for company and cheerful to talk to. (we were seriously the ONLY people in the park.)

Then we meandered over to the gift shop, which was also maned by charming volunteers. Come to find out, this place is a local treasure that the community volunteers to staff. It is lovingly kept up and staffed. Sliver Falls is one of our new favorite parks. I hear the place is a zoo in the summer and I can see why! Great place but do not fear going there in the winter, as the fire is lit and the friendly staff are waiting. Oh, and you'll have the place to yourself!

This is a very fun area. Lots of hiking trails, camping, and mountain bike trails. The hiking tails are in good shape usually even when it rains. The mountain bike trails can get muddy though. If you are in the area make sure you stop and take a look, it's a one of a kind attraction.

Two of the waterfalls we could actually walk around behind. One of those was a bit further from the parking lots and therefore had far less people, and it was actually quite easy to get down to the base of the falls, but there was so much water crashing down that it was a bit too scary to do so. But it was a wonderful feeling having the spray coming up to you, being in the midst of all that superb greenery. I highly recommend going midday so the sun is hitting, because everything wet looks more beautiful when the sun is shining on it. Some of the falls are just a quick walk from the parking lots, some take a bit more time. Some sections a bit steep, but nothing overly difficult.

We accompanied our daughter and four grandsons on a 3 mile loop where we were able to see 2 of the 10 saterfalls. A must do to anyone who likes to hike and see beautiful country side. Short drive from Portland and worth every minute.
