Silver Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of the more accessible waterfalls in Mt. Rainier National Park, Silver Falls chutes through a chasm of its own making in the Ohanapecosh River and then drops over a ledge, falling 40 feet into a blue- green punchbowl before continuing downstream under a wooden footbridge. Given the falls’ location a short hike from the road, visitors traversing the east side of Mt. Rainier National Park shouldn’t miss it.

To get to Silver Falls, fi nd a small parking area a quarter mile south of Mt. Rainier National Park’s Stevens Canyon entrance on WA 123 and park by a small trailhead marked with a small metal “Silver Falls” sign. Follow this boot path into the old-growth forest to the west and soon cross over the Ohanapecosh River via a high wooden footbridge and look right (north) to see Silver Falls thundering down its main 40-foot drop into a deep “blue hole” below before crashing downstream."
