Silver Falls Trail#4 in Best Things To Do in Mount Rainier National Park
Price & Hours
This 3-mile round-trip trail, which begins from the Ohanapecosh Campground, takes visitors to gorgeous Silver Falls and is relatively flat and easy to hike, making it popular with families. The trail follows the river to the falls, crosses a bridge and then loops back to the campground. Visitors call the view of the falls "spectacular" and "beautiful."
There are two other shorter trails visitors can take to get to the falls. If you park at the pullout on the west side of Route 123 (a little less than 2 miles north of the Ohanapecosh Visitor Center), a half-mile walk leads to the falls. There is also a 1-mile trail from Stevens Canyon Road, which begins west of the Stevens Canyon Entrance, across from the Grove of the Patriarchs trailhead.
Access to the trail is included in park admission. For more information on current trail conditions, visit the NPS website.
