December is a great time to hike at Silver Falls State Park. The lodge and park entrance are all dressed up for the holidays, water levels are higher in the waterfalls, and there are far fewer crowds.

Almost every day, I go on a long walk with my dog, Astrid. I’m lucky to live close to Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, so when I go on a 4 mile walk from my house, 2 of those miles are on trails.

The Trail of 10 Falls hike in Silver Falls State Park is a waterfall lover’s dream. It’s popular and crowded, but with more waterfalls that can be seen on any hike in the region and beautiful creeks running through the entire canyon, it is well worth a visit.
