People call Silver Falls the “crown jewel” of the Oregon State Parks system, and once you visit, you know why. Silver Falls State Park is the kind of standout scenic treasure that puts Oregon firmly onto the national stage. Its beauty and boundless photographic opportunities make this a perfect place to spend time mastering your creative urges. 

You’ll be able to walk behind three of these falls and see what a 177-foot curtain of water looks like from behind. It’s part of the Trail of Ten Falls, a spectacular, nationally recognized hiking trail that weaves through a dense forested landscape. The trail passes a series of breathtaking waterfalls along a rocky canyon, and descends to a winding creek at the forest floor. This nearly 9-mile loop is considered to be a moderate hike, with an overall elevation change of 800 feet.  Several connecting trails with separate access points make for shorter routes.

Then will have a few hours for an instructional class which will cover the three C's of creative image making, Communication, Composition, and Craftsmanship before having a great meal together to finish off the evening.
