Silver Falls State Park

We started camping again! Silver Falls State Park had been on our list for quite a while, so when we got the chance to stay in one of the cabins there, we snapped it up.

This is part of our Oregon State Park challenge! Check out our progress here.

You can’t stay here and not do the Trail of Ten Falls. So we did. It’s about 8 miles round trip, and you walk past, around, under and/or behind at least ten scenic waterfalls along the way. This was Lucy’s longest hike ever, and she loved it, even though it rained on us the entire way.

The next day, we stopped in at the Gardner House B&B for some afternoon tea (one of our favorite traditions) and some great stories from the proprietor, whose father was an astronaut!

This is a truly lovely park, with some nice little towns ready to explore in the surrounding area. It’s definitely worth a stop, we loved it.
