From Salem, head North on I-5 to Silverton and fuel your morning with coffee and fresh-in-house made mini-donuts at Gear-Up, Silverton before exploring the shops in downtown Silverton.
Pro Tip: Enjoy Silverton’s Mural Society Self-Guided Walking Tour and see how many murals you can find.
For those looking for an epic State Park experience, plan a day trip to Silver Falls State Park. You can enjoy 24 miles of walking trails, 14 miles of horse trails, a 4-mile bike path, and ten breathtaking waterfalls.
Plan ahead and make reservations for Tree Climbing at Silver Falls. This one-of-a-kind experience gives small groups a literal “birds eye view”. Climb with an experienced guide and scale 200+ ft tall trees inside the park. Pick from a sunrise, sunset, or mid-day climb.
Pro Tip: Tree climbs last an average of 3+ hours, so make sure to pick up snacks and water before heading to the park.
After the climb, visit Silver Falls Brewery for refreshments and a bite to eat. Silver Falls Brewery is known for sourcing their products locally and making many of their sauces in-house.
