Twice in October 2017, I visited fabulous Silver Falls State Park, just south of Silverton, Oregon. Here is the first set of two. It is a land of giant trees, lush fern forest floors, streams, creeks, and massive waterfalls (three of which you get to hike behind). There are several trails, but the main one, known as the Trail of Ten Falls, is a loop and just under nine miles long. Mostly the going is easy, and good for the whole family, young and old, with wide, beautifully maintained paths and railings along cliffs. This park is one of the great gems of Oregon, which is really saying something.
Nice person in Portland, Oregon, and beyond.
