Silver Falls is one of those places that you never tire of visiting. It epitomizes the wilderness of the Pacific NW with its lush vegetation, mossy trees, cool air, and utter tranquility. Despite the number of times I've been it never loses its allure and manages to seem isolated while being just a short drive from Portland. Many of the trails shadow moving water that provides a soothing backdrop to the sounds of birds and the rustle of wind through the trees. Silver Falls is the primary reason I bought a two year state parks pass, it is one of many that are easily accessible and absolutely breathtaking.
