Silver Falls Loop Trail

Silver Falls Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Ohanapecosh River may be the most picturesque stream in the park, with its crystal-clear waters, moss-laden banks, and tall forests above. One of the prettiest sections of this most attractive river is Silver Falls. This sparkling cascade tumbles over a jagged, rocky ledge, creating a noisy splash full of silver streamers and frothy white water.

The trail to the falls draws lots of hikers of all ages and abilities since it is relatively flat, well graded, and easily accessible. Don’t let the masses get you down, though, since even on the busiest Saturday afternoons, this hike is well worth the effort."

Very nice enjoyable hike. We discovered this trail after our cancelled hike at Paradise (36 degrees) on the way down to lower elevations for warmth. The falls are greatt and we had our lunch on the rocks right at the falls. If you take this hike be sure to continue on for .5 miles and catch the trail of the "Grove of the Patriarchs" Huge old trees and a fun suspension bridge to cross. A great family hike.
We started this hike in the early afternoon and still had enough time to enjoy a meal at the campground before dark. It was a great hike for my whole family, the youngest being 3, they had a ball. Had a little snack enjoying the view of the falls. All around great hike for the whole family! Spectacular water fall and very clear water.
