Don't go chasing waterfalls

A mere mile from the main South falls and 188 steps later (killer steps going back) you arrive at Lower South Falls at Silver Falls State Park just outside Silverton and Salem, Oregon.

Lower South Falls with a drop of 93 feet the falls are only the 5th tallest in the park, but still a waterfall of major significance.

Lower South Falls is one of four waterfalls in Silver Falls State Park featuring a trail which passes behind the falling water. Unlike the other three, the confines of the overhang behind the falls are quite cramped, and as such the trail has been constructed bordered with a very tasteful stone wall that blends into the landscape quite unobtrusively, which gives the falls a bit of a rustic feel more typically associated with areas like the Columbia River Gorge.
