Silver Falls Trail Run – Trail of 10 Waterfalls

This past week, I spent a few nights at the Silver Falls Campground. This gave me an opportunity to run the Trail of 10 Waterfalls trail. It’s a 9 mile out and back trail that features 10 waterfalls and some amazing scenery.

It was a slow run, lots of elevation (about 2,000 ft in total), and several starts and stops to check out the falls.

I started the run at the campground area which is about 1 mile from the official trailhead. Once at the South Falls trailhead, you drop into the canyon and begin the route.  All of the falls are along the main trail with the exception of Winter Falls, that requires a short quarter mile run up a separate trail to see.

One of the most spectacular parts is being able to walk behind North Falls. I made a quick video.

Outside of the main 10 falls, there are several creeks that drain into the canyon. Everywhere you looked, you could see some kind of water falling..Pretty cool.

I’d highly recommend checking out the area if you can.
