Spectacular Oregon Waterfall Hike (Silver Falls State Park)

Description: April is for waterfalls.  Join us for a wonderful and exciting hike in Silver Falls State Park, one of Oregon’s beautiful gems.  We will take a 5.2 mile loop through forested canyons and visit eight waterfalls, five of them over 100 feet high.  Forest wildflowers will be in bloom, and the trail leads underneath two of the falls, so bring a rain jacket!

Difficulty: Easy
Distance: About 5 miles (loop)
Elevation Gain: 400ft.

Preparation: Wear sturdy, mud-resistant hiking shoes or boots, and bring rain gear and warm layers of clothing. Bring plenty of water, your lunch and snacks.

Dog Policy: In accordance with National Sierra Club policy, dogs, other than certified assistance dogs, are allowed only at designated dog events.  This outing is not a designated dog outing.

About us: The Many Rivers Group is affiliated with State and National Sierra Club organizations.  The Sierra Club is the oldest and largest grass-roots environmental organization in the country, with nearly a million members and supporters nationwide.  The Many Rivers Group is an all-volunteer organization that represents Sierra Club members in Douglas, Coos, and Lane counties.  Please let us know us if you would like to join our our conservation and environmental protection efforts.

    Did my other message get sent? I searched all over for how to send it. Maneuvering in this web site is a challenge for newbies.

      Hi Marissa. It's true: the Meetup pages are packed with info and options, and it can be confusing. To find the RSVP feature you'll need to go to the page for the specific meetup event. Then, on the right, you'll see the list of participants. At the top of the column of participants you should see a button that allows you to change your RSVP status. Give that a try and let me know if it doesn't work for you.

    I'm going to have to back out of this hike. I sprained my foot and I want it to get better! Sorry for the late notice.

      Hi Marissa. It would be helpful if you could change your RSVP. That will let in the next person from the waitlist. Take care of the foot! -Richard

      I have no idea how to maneuver in this web site. It took many trials to get to where I could send that message. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    Great! I'll meet you all @ SEHS!

      Melanie, we should be bad to the SEHS parking lot by 4:00 PM.

    Mike, I'll stay tuned!

  • Barbara G.

    I've always wanted to check out Silver Falls State Park. Please email me if there's a chance that I can join you all on Sunday.

    April 8, 2013

    • Mike B.

      Barbara, there will probably be cancellations and no-shows, so there is a good chance we can accommodate you. I see you are on the waiting list. as the date approaches we will see how many we have.

    Although I did suggest this hike, I did not suggest this date. Sadly, I probably won't be able to come unless I cancel my other commitment.

      Sorry Melanie, your dates just did not work out for the outings leaders. Hope you can rearrange your schedule.

    This was one of the first places I hiked on a visit to Oregon 13 years ago. It to me this long to finally move here. Looking forward to meeting the group.
