Exploring Silver Falls’ waterfall wonderland on the Trail of Ten Falls

The Northwest is home to some seriously incredible waterfall hikes, but there’s nothing else quite like the Trail of Ten Falls, which passes by 10 beautiful waterfalls in Silver Falls State Park. The waterfalls are the result of millions of years of geology, formed as streams and creeks cut through layers of ash and volcanic basalt, deposited by eruptions in the Cascade Mountains. They range from the 177-foot South Falls to 27-foot Drake Falls, each beautiful in its own unique way. This week on the Peak Northwest podcast, we offer a primer on the spectacular Trail of Ten Falls — and what else Silver Falls State Park has to offer.
