A small, scenic waterfall, Silver Creek Falls plunges down a steep conglomerate rock into a deep little pool surrounded by mossy rock walls and overhanging cedars. There are taller, but less steep, drops above the main drop that slide and fan over a wide creek bed.

Directions

Driving southwest out of Eagle River turn right just out of town onto 5 Mile Point Road. Park on the shoulder of the road at 1.8 miles before crossing over the creek's bridge (which is more of a culvert far below the road than a bridge). Follow the east bank of the creek, sticking to the trails past the log clutter at first, then cutting down to see the falls.

  • Michael Aug 8, '17 We own the property on the west side of the falls. Even if you have permission, a large portion of the trail along Silver Creek collapsed a few years ago due to a lot of snow melt. It is now more difficult to access the falls because you can't follow the creek the entire way anymore.
    • Jacob P Emerick Aug 25, '17 Thanks for the update, Michael. Sounds like this waterfall is getting more difficult to visit.
