About Twin Falls
Twin Falls seemed to be one of the more ordinary waterfalls amongst the ten major ones that we managed to see while visiting Silver Falls State Park.
This falls was short as it was tumbling probably around 20-25ft.
However, it had pretty good flow and it was split in the middle by a rock that yielded the dual side-by-side property of the falls that might have been responsible for earning its name of “Twin Falls”.
There was a railing along the rim of its hard-rock layer supporting this waterfall, but the view from that railing wasn’t very good.
Perhaps the most interesting views were along the Trail of Ten Falls between the Winter Falls junction and this waterfall (roughly 0.3 miles to the east of the junction).
Unfortunately as you can see from the photo at the top of this page, we had to contend with lots of foliage getting in the way of this view.
Overall, we hiked about 0.5 miles from the Winter Falls trailhead to a bridge over the creek responsible for the Twin Falls.
Once we crossed the bridge, we then turned right and walked another 0.3 miles before we finally saw the Twin Falls itself.
Twin 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.
The way we visited this falls was from the Winter Falls car park.
See that page for driving directions to the trailhead.
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.
