This beautiful, wooded day hike takes you to spectacular Silver Falls. Silver Falls opens early in the year due to its low elevation, and visitors can enjoy the falls as early as May. The trail wanders through a beautiful forest. Traffic can be very heavy on this trail, since the trailhead is located at Ohanapecosh Campground.

This was a great day hike, the variety of scenery was amazing! I have never seen so many outstanding views of Mount Rainier. We also saw grouse and deer on the trail and lots of animal tracks...so a fun trail for kids. Excellent!
