The combination of two distinctive waterfalls and a one-of-a-kind historic trail makes the trek to Golden and Silver Falls a destination hike in the Coast Range. It’s recommended that you hike all of the trails in the park because each one offers its own view. But if time is an issue, or you’re just not up to all 3 miles of trail, the optimal route starts from the north end of the parking area and crosses a small footbridge before forking. For a view of Golden Falls from the bottom, go right, but for now take a left here, heading toward Silver Falls. The trail parallels the creek through a forest of old-growth Douglas fir and bigleaf maple trees. After 0.4 mile the trail reaches a junction. Continue straight, to the base of Silver Falls.
