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.
