We had such a nice time here! Lots of walking trails! There are maps with different routes and they all make a point to tell you how far each one is. We chose Osprey trail which took us by the river. It's fall so all the trees were beautiful with their golds and reds. We are definitely coming back to walk next time we are in Salem.

This is an awesome hike with a little bit of history thrown in. Beautiful area with lots of trees and singing birds around you. The hike is listed as moderate, but I found it to be easy. I did the educational 2.5 mile loop then wound my way over to the mission trail. Don't leave without seeing the ghost structure of the mission. Will definitely do this hike again.

Oh my! An amazing hike through ten beautiful falls where you are able to walk underneath some of them. Easy/Moderate in my personal opinion although it was ranked as moderate/difficult on the sign when we got there. An easy drive, too, and easy to find which is a huge plus for me! We went in the end of October on a sunny/cloudy day from 11:00 am and ended our hike at around 2:30 pm so i would definitely pack a lunch if you plan on hiking the whole thing like we did. They also have restrooms and
