PNW Must See: Silver Falls

The largest state park in Oregon amounts to a natural microcosm of what’s great about this corner of the continent, with a moody rainforest, stunning waterfalls, and hiking trails that take you deep into the 9,200-acre preserve. At Silver Falls State Park, near Salem, calypso orchids hide among the firs and maples, while cataracts up to 177 feet high punctuate a misty canyon. The 8.5 mile Trail of Ten Falls draws hundreds of thousands of hikers each year to its spectacular cascades, not just for the sights but also for the sounds.
