Middle North Falls, Oregon

Middle North Falls in May 2010

Middle North Falls, despite the rather generic name, is one of the more memorable waterfalls in Silver Falls State Park. There are a number of waterfalls that you can walk behind in the park, and this is the falls where you have the best bet of getting wet. You can even probably reach out and touch the falls if you want as you walk behind. It’s not as tall as the other falls in the park, but it still has its redeeming qualities.


  1. From Salem, drive east on US-22 to the junction of US-22 and OR-214.
  2. Head north on OR-214 for 15 miles, following the numerous signs to Silver Falls State Park.
  3. You can park at either the South Falls or North Falls parking areas. The South Falls parking area is larger, and the Waterfall Trail leads you past all of the falls.

Accessibility: 6/10 (moderate)
Height: 106′
Length of Hike: 8.7 miles round-trip (to see all waterfalls in the park)
