We only did Lower South and South Falls. I wish we'd had time for the full Trail of Ten Falls, but maybe another time! South Falls is absolutely incredible--photos don't do it justice. I grossly underestimated just how big it really is, from looking at photos beforehand. And the fact you can walk behind it?? Crazy amazing. Reminds me of Seljalandsfoss in Iceland, which I've only seen in pictures, but they look similar. I've heard others say the same thing.

We came with a 9yo and a 5yo, and went slow, taking lots of pictures. We did the 2.5-mile loop for these two falls in about 2.5 hours. This allowed plenty of time, and we didn't feel rushed. Bathrooms onsite, and there's a credit-card-taking machine to pay the $5 for parking. Lodge Cafe was closed (it was early April). Great way to spend a morning!

Came here as a recommendation from a family member. Well worth the hour drive. It had snowed the night before so that added to the beauty. Parking was easy. $3 for parking I believe. Trails are clearly labeled. And you can get a map. Started at south falls and it was an amazing sight to see. You walk behind the falls so you will get wet. Bring water and your hiking shoes. And the only bathroom is near the parking lot.

Silver Falls is a beautiful State Park in Oregon. There is a falls, North Falls, that you can actually walk to and walk behind. This is well worth the walk and the view, even when it is cold and wet.

Absolutely enjoyed visiting this state park and doing a lovely hike around the waterfalls. According to the map, there are 10 waterfalls that you will see if you do the entire 8.5 mile hike. But we opted to do just 2/3 of the hike and save the rest for next time! I didn't expect much in regards to the waterfalls, but I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the waterfalls were. It's pretty amazing that you get to see all these waterfalls in just one single hike. It was such a treat to be seeing the natural beauty of Oregon during this first visit. It's relatively an easy hike and I wouldn't hesitate to visit this place again. The only thing to watch out for is that the trail may be muddy in some parts and it may be helpful to wear good hiking shoes.

Although it was a bit rainy it was a great hike. I recommend going to the south falls for a easier hike and if don’t want to hike you can park at the lookout point for free and see the falls
