The Best Romantic Getaways: Silver Falls State Park, Oregon

I want to take my girlfriend for an outdoorsy, romantic weekend in a state or national park in the Northwest. What are your suggestions?

Niagara Falls has nothing on the dramatic (though smaller) cascades in Silver Falls State Park. There are 10 falls in all within the 9,000-acre park, half of those more than 10 stories high. The eight-mile Trail of Ten Falls/Canyon Trail hiking loop descends into a thick temperate rainforest filled with Douglas fir and hemlock, and affords excellent views of each cascade. One-room cabins are available for $50 a night, and though there’s no running water in them, the rustic feel fits nicely with the park’s majestic beauty.
