Perimeter Trail at Silver Falls
This lush forested "backcountry" trail will take us away from the usual Silver Falls crowds. We'll ascend into old growth forest to the Perimeter-Rackett Ridge Trail Junction where we'll have lunch before returning the way we came. There are NO waterfalls on this trail so we'll take the short spur to Upper North Falls to see one on our return. Bring water and a lunch.
