Today’s location: From a statistical standpoint, North Falls is only the third tallest waterfall within Silver Falls State Park. It is also the only waterfall you can see in the park without getting out of your car, but neither of these are the reason you should visit. What North Falls holds over every other waterfall in Silver Falls State Park is drama. North Silver Creek is channeled through a narrow crack in the basaltic bedrock, from which it thunders 136 feet to the bottom of the canyon, with a second smaller segment forming when the creek is running high in the winter and spring.

Silver Falls State Park - #oregon

Discover this extraordinary beauty #silverfallsstatepark , will surprise you from start to finish! http://www.oneworldtrips.com/.

People call it the “crown jewel” of the Oregon State Parks system, and once you visit, you know why. Silver Falls State Park is the kind of standout scenic treasure that puts Oregon firmly onto the national—and international—stage. Its beauty, boundless recreational opportunities and historic presence keep it there. Nestled in the foothills of Oregon’s Cascade Mountains, less than an hour east of the state capital of Salem, Oregon, the sprawling 9,200 acre property is the largest state park in Oregon, and one of the most popular.

Waterfalls: Where else can you walk behind a waterfall? Check out the famous South Falls and see what a 177-foot curtain of water looks like from behind. It’s part of the Trail of Ten Falls. The trail passes a series of breathtaking waterfalls along a rocky canyon, and descends to a winding creek at the forest floor.

Boots, bikes, paws, hooves: The park offers more than 25 miles of backcountry trails for mountain biking, hiking or horseback riding. The trails are lined with lush vegetation and remnants of old-growth forests. Wildlife is abundant. Bears and cougars live in the more remote park areas.

Silver Falls State Park


La gente lo llama la “joya de la corona” del sistema de Parques del Estado de Oregon, y una vez que usted visita, usted sabe por qué. Silver Falls State Park es el tipo de destacado tesoro paisajístico que pone firmemente Oregon en la escena internacional y nacional. Su belleza, oportunidades recreativas ilimitadas y presencia histórica mantenerlo allí. Ubicado en las estribaciones de las montañas Cascade en Oregon, menos de una hora al este de la capital del estado de Salem, Oregón, el 9,200 acres de propiedad en expansión es el parque más grande del estado de Oregón, y uno de los más populares.

Cataratas: ¿Dónde más se puede caminar detrás de una cascada? Echa un vistazo a las famosas Cataratas del Sur y ver lo que es una cortina de 177-pies de agua se ve desde atrás. Es parte de la Ruta de los Diez Falls. El camino pasa una serie de impresi

So we failed at fishing at Fall Creek for Day 23. Day 24: We drove out of Eugene and up to Salem Oregon where we visited Silver Falls State Park. Probably the most beautiful forest I’ve ever scene. Everything in sight was covered in miss. Not to mention we saw 6 waterfalls in one day. Great 5 mile hike. Tomorrow we push north again to Prtland to reunite with some former piggies! A big shoutout to @minardio for letting us chill at his pad tonight. Goodnight 🖖🏿. #Oregon #silverfallsstatepark #trailoftenfalls #advntrtme #highlife #nbd (at Silver Falls State Park)
