If you have never been to Silver Falls State Park, you are in for a treat. If you have been before, you’re still in for a treat.

Starting in the South Falls day use area, you’ll have the option of 1 loop around the Trail of 10 Falls for a quarter marathon or add an additional loop to complete the half-marathon.

The chance to run behind and pass these picturesque falls is something you won’t soon forget.
