The State Park includes designated hiking, biking, jogging and equestrian trails; a swimming hole, beach, and play area; campgrounds and picnic areas; and a day lodge loaded with neat interpretive displays, a snack bar, and a cozy fireplace. The bike route consists of a 1.9 mile loop and a 2.4 mile out-and-back. The loop travels through a lovely second-growth forest; you might see a lot of deer on this part of the ride. Don't miss the waterfall hike, check out all or part of the seven-mile Trail of Ten Falls. You can access this hiking trail near the South Falls Lodge, and at two viewpoints along OR 214. Silver Falls State Park is about 22 miles southwest of Salem.

Fun, easy trails for hiking, trail running, etc. There are a lot of great falls to see along the way, and it is a very refreshing place. There are a few short climbing sections, but most people shouldn't have any problems. Great place for families.
