Silver Falls

Description:

This is one of the easier waterfall to get to along the Highway 410 / 123 corridor in Mt. Rainier National Park. The Ohanapecosh River cascades down a series of  steps, becoming more flume-like as it descends, ending in a powerful 40 foot plunge into a large blue pool. Below the falls the river enters a narrow gorge which the trail spans on a high footbridge.

Directions

From packwood head East on US-12. After approximately 7.6 miles turn left on WA-123 and follow for 5.2 miles.  Turn left into the campground and look for the visitor center. The day parking area lies close to the visitor center. En route to the parking area you will see the trailhead, which lies behind the Ohanapecosh Visitor Center.
