If it’s waterfalls you seek, the 8.7-mile Trail of Ten Falls in this park 50 miles south of Portland is your best bet. You’ll snake behind, past, and below 10 cascades on this dayhike, including show stopper South Falls, a 177-foot blast of a cataract that you can walk behind.

Trailhead: South Falls Lodge

Season: Year-round; spring is best for waterfalls

Permit: $5/vehicle
