Silver Falls in the Rain

I saw a clip of Silver Falls on the Oregon Field Guide special on OPB and HAD to go…NOW. The kids were onboard and we all headed out to stay a night in one of the campground cabins and check out the trails and falls.

It was fantastic weather when we got there but we weren’t sure which section of trail to take. We hiked a small bike path and played close to the campground, planning to hike the bigger trail in the morning.

We had the entire campground to ourselves. Pick of the cabins!

It started raining in the night and never stopped. We checked out the North Falls trail (tiny) and never did find the trailhead for the South Falls. It was raining so we didn’t want to investigate too much more.

This little waterfall was NOT the reason I wanted to come. However, we did have a great time and plan to come back again with better weather.
