Silver Falls Trail

This one's moderately difficult but still doable for families — the Silver Falls Trail can be as long or as short as you want it to be with three different points of entry.

For those who want a good distance and time for a hike, try the entrance from the Ohanapecosh Campground that takes you 2.7 miles over about 90 minutes. Alternative options are a one-mile route from Stevens Canyon Road or just over a half-mile from State Route 123. But no matter what starting point you choose, the trail has the same destination that is enjoyed by thousands of tourists per year.

The Ohanapecosh River sends its water over Silver Falls, a beautiful little geographic feature with groves of evergreen trees on either side. Grab the camera and prepare to take a few photos; there's sure to be at least a few other people on the trail with you wanting to do the same!

The National Park Service urges everyone hiking the Silver Falls Trail to please stay behind fences and on the trail for your own safety.
