Silver Falls Loop Trail

Paradise Inn, WA 98377

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. The hike starts from the visitor center on an interpretive trail, but at 0.2 mile, you veer right onto the Silver Falls Trail to continue up the east side of the Ohanapecosh River. The trail is relatively flat and well maintained as it ambles north through the moss-laden forests flanking the river. The path stays above the river most of the way, with only occasional views of the pretty stream.
