Silver Falls State Park: Trail of Ten Waterfalls
7.8 miles 1,300 ft gain
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.
I was testing out my new camera for the first time and shooting waterfalls was perfect for that, especially since I like to shoot in manual mode in order to capture a softer water flow. I’d been hiking without a camera for a couple of months after dropping my previous camera in a creek on a backpacking trip. My iPhone filled in for a bit, but it sure is nice to have a real camera in my hands again!
