Find your way to Silver Falls from Interstate 5 by taking Exit 253 and turning east.
You will be on Highway 22 which runs from Bend to the Coast. Go east from Salem a few miles and take the Exit 7 offramp. At the stop sign turn left and go under Highway 22, then follow the signs. This is the main route to Silver Falls. It's about 24 miles to the Park from Salem.
Coming from the east (Santiam Canyon & Detroit Lake), the easiest way (without backtracking) is to take the signed Stayton-Sublimity Exit. There is no number on this exit sign so you'll have to watch for it by name. (If you miss it, go to Exit 7). You will exit right, then take a right to go north 1 mile to Sublimity. Go straight through town a mile or two and then turn right onto highway 214. Follow the signs.
With either route, these are paved rural roads so please drive with care. Logging trucks and farm vehicles may be encountered and THEY should be given the right of way whenever possible. The road has curves, so take your time and again, drive with care. It's about 14 miles from highway 22 to Silver Falls using the Stayton-Sublimity Exit. See the "Larger Map of Trails" for a better picture of the area and roads near the park.
