Level 4/P-Trail of Ten Falls at Silver Falls State Park Photo Hike

This is a photo hike, so it will be a slow pace, all day hike.

We'll be leaving pretty early in the morning to get there close to when the park opens at 8am.

It's in Silver Falls State Park(2-3 hour drive, one way), we will hike to 10 different waterfalls along the trail. The hike is 9+ miles with roughly 1,300 ft of elevation gain. The elevation will be rolling up and down through out the trail.
We would be stopping at each waterfall for photo opportunities and there are waterfalls that you can walk behind. Additional miles could be added to see different viewing angles of each waterfall.
Day Use Fees will be required.

No dogs please.

[masked]) Since the weather calls for showers, I'm changing the meeting time to 7am.

    Wow what waterfalls! Lush rain forest vegetation. Great scenery.
    Walked behind huge cascading falls and took tons of pictures---some through the cascades. Worth the trip will do again.

      Hey John. I love racquetball. A couple things to know. 1- I'm not very good. 2- I play for fun, not blood. It drives me crazy when I see people yelling at each other over a game.

    I will need to take a rain check (no pun intended!). Going to Silver Falls Park in two weeks with friends and on to a overnight stay at the Oregon Gardens. I appreciate all the updates on weather, etc. Have fun and take many wonderful photos.

    Do you have a page that describes what a level 4p hike is? I checked the site and found a page titled "hike difficulty levels" but it has them graded as easy, moderate, etc.

    Thanks.

    I just looked at next Saturday forecast and it's calling for rain, of course. So, be prepare to have some kind of protection for your camera and yourself...

      We did this meetup last year and it rained the whole day. We all had ponchos. It is a great hike in the rain! We all had a blast! I am taking my daughter there and renting a cabin for the night weekend. Meteor showers are happening! Rain permitting all weekend also.

    Actually looks like the weather is getting better for us this Saturday by the day, not to say we won't see a shower or two, but it's gone from rain likely to showers. Of course, it could snow on us too...lol!

    That's your choice to go or not. Living in Oregon the weather changes by the hour. We just have to prepared for it. At this point, I'm not changing the day. I have too much other stuff planned to change the date, sorry.
