Silver Falls State Park, located about 24 miles east of Salem, is the largest in Oregon. Within its 8700 acres is a multiple-use trail system that runs more than 22 miles, any part of which is perfect for either short jaunts or more rigorous day-long hikes. Foliage and stream flow varies from season to season, so the scenery is always changing.
The park is also a waterfall lover’s paradise. Ten gorgeous waterfalls along a five mile loop trail, and South Falls is definitely one of the crown jewels. It’s the tallest free-falling waterfall found along the Canyon Trail, otherwise known as the Trail of Ten Falls.
