About Double Falls
Double Falls was the finale of our self-tour of ten waterfalls in Silver Falls State Park.
Given that we were pretty waterfall saturated at this point, its surprisingly graceful two-tiered drop (true to its name) made it a fitting way to reinvigorate us on the hike back out to the Winter Falls trailhead.
The upper tier of Double Falls fell in profile to our viewing position on the trail before the stream twisted and fell over the much taller tier.
It had a cumulative height of 178ft though its entirety was probably best seen from the Trail of Ten Falls junction as opposed to the spur that took us closer to the Double Falls itself.
That said, the spur trail led us to views of the lower main drop without as much foliage blocking our line of sight.
The quick 0.1-mile spur to get closer to the Double Falls had also let us feel its spray.
It was too bad the weather was so bad by the time we made it to this waterfall because we could’ve easily envisioned ourselves chilling out in front of it while taking our time making long exposure photos.
Instead, we were a little hasty in our picture taking to limit the likelihood of water damage.
This waterfall was also just upstream from the Lower North Falls.
So it too had the distinction of probably being one of the furthest waterfalls from any trailhead in Silver Falls State Park.
We managed to walk all the way to this waterfall (in the rain), which was about 1.2 miles each way (2.4 miles round trip).
Double Falls resides in Silver Falls State Park near Salem in Marion County, Oregon. It is administered by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, visit their website.
We hiked to this waterfall from the car park for Winter Falls.
