About Drake Falls
Drake Falls was a pretty diminutive 27ft falls requiring us to stand on an overlooking viewing deck protruding from the cliff to get a view of it.
We found this waterfall about 0.2 miles past the Middle North Falls turnoff.
This was really just a waterfall for collectors as there were still two more waterfalls another 0.2 miles further downstream.
To our knowledge, we don’t think there was a way to get closer to the waterfall (at least one that was official).
Then again, we didn’t really bother to try since we didn’t think it would’ve been worth the effort anyways even if there had been an informal scramble to it.
Drake 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 started the hike that encompassed this waterfall from the Winter Falls trail.
It’s about a mile or so walk from the trailhead to the falls.
As for the geographical context, Portland was 42 miles (an hour drive) north of Silverton and 47 miles (also an hour drive) north of Salem.
