Perhaps due to the neighboring Silver Falls State Park, the easy-to-access and striking Shellburg Falls garners very little in the way of attention. So if you’re in the market for a Trail of Ten Falls–caliber waterfall without the throngs, Shellburg is a great choice. You’ll also get to visit two other falls along the way. And even though Lower Shellburg is smaller and the view of Stasel is a bit obscured, they definitely sweeten the pot.
