The Trail of 10 Falls at Silver Falls State Park has three waterfalls that you can walk behind. We hiked the Canyon Trail and the Rim Trail.

Opal Creek

Opal Creek is about a 2 hour drive from Portland and is one of the last areas of large old growth forest. We were a bit early for hiking here though… the snow cover kept us on the main road.
