On this Enchanted Waterfalls Hike we will venture into the foothills of the Cascade mountains, enjoying a beautiful scenic drive through the countryside before reaching our trailhead. Once on location we will hike "The Crown Jewel of Oregon", Silver Falls. This breathtaking ~5mi loop leads us down a well established path, suitable for both beginner and seasoned hikers alike. Emotions come alive as we immerse ourselves in the moss covered forest and venture behind a towering 177ft waterfall and watch as the crystal clear water crashes to the ground, before continuing on our journey passing 7 unique waterfalls in total. Along our path we may discuss native plants, animals, landscape topography and ecosystem functions in a natural and fluid manner. Before reaching the trails end we will pass through a stand of old growth forest, peering up at 250ft tall trees dating to over a thousand years old. Once back at the trailhead we will enjoy our final glimpse of the forest in the company of our newfound friends. When the last photo has been taken and the energy of this magical land has been fully realized, we will make the return journey to Portland.
As a lifelong local, I’ve spent my days exploring the natural world and advancing my skills in the backcountry. I took this passion to new heights by studying Earth and Environmental Science at WSUV, and obtaining medical certifications in Wilderness First Response. I founded Stök Outfitters with the goal of providing a safe, fun and informative bridge between city life and the great outdoors for members of all socioeconomic backgrounds and physical abilities, with emphasis on underrepresented groups. I believe that mankind’s love for nature transcends all social and political biases, and that we are strengthened through our diversity. I welcome all those who seek to draw closer to our wildlands and wish to enrich their lives through adventure and exploration. Let’s put the Stök in your Northwest adventure!
I will provide reusable water bottles if needed.
