Fed by the Ohanapecosh River, Silver Falls is both easily accessible and breathtaking. A great combination in just about anyone’s book. Theresa and I found it quite by accident while spending a weekend exploring in the Mt Rainier National Park; something I need to do more off, but don’t do enough of as my normal inclination is to head to the water whenever I have any time off.

Silver Falls

There are multiple trails that will get you here and a good place to start planning your visit would be at the Washington Trail Associations website. If you’re in the area, do yourself a favor and pay the falls a visit. Look in the upper left of the photo and you’ll notice Theresa sitting on a rock to give you a sense of the scale of the falls.
