In my opinion many waterfalls are dangerous places. This small waterfall pools into a shallow sandy area. Terrific for children and adults to cool off and play on a hot summer day. Easy .2 mile trail. This is a picture of the sandy- silvery water...More

Must do. Super easy hike from the roadside parking. Wear god shoes and it isn’t paved but wasn’t that big of a deal if you walk/hike much. Not a long hike to get to the falls so almost anyone could do it that can walk...More

Easy path to the waterfall, fills up fast in the summer but a great place to cool off in the summer. Beautiful waterfall with wading pool.

Very short drive from town and a short walk into the woods. Beautiful falls with a wonderful swimming hole at the bottom.

This is a very short stroll through the woods to a lovely waterfall. I imagine in season, it would be a fun swimming hole. Easy to get to, easy to enjoy but a little dicey parking Be sure to check it out.

If you’re looking for an adventurous hike here you’ll be disappointed. It’s just a short walk in the woods, but it’s well maintained and pretty, and there’s a nice bridge on the way. The waterfall is great and powerful. Worth the visit. This would be...More

Such a gorgeous spot and a very easy hike. Just need to watch the many tree-roots, as one could stumble. The waterfall is beautiful, not large, but quite wide, kids and people love to swim by it. When the Mountain Laurel is blooming, it is...More

Driving back to town from Whitewater falls, we passed the sign for Silver Run - SO glad we stopped. It was absolutely beautiful and serene. Super easy to access, too. Lovely pools - would be a great place to splash around in warmer weather.

Stayed there for hours, enjoying the easily accessible falls. Can just walk right under them. That water is really cold even in the summertime. So photogenic. Interesting array of wildlife. Only about a 10-15 minute walk from the road. Getting out is hard because you...More

If you have an all terrain wheeled vehicle - like some strollers - you could get closer to the falls. But, as one reviewer said, at the falls, there are large flat rocks to walk over and can be slippery because of the... More

Yes. This is USFS property, which does require a leash.
