One of the great things about the Pacific Northwest is that the weather rarely gets too hot or too cold at any given time of the year. Comparable to Western Europe, our climate makes it so that you can enjoy outdoor activities all year round.
You may need to throw on some extra clothing, but you won’t need to be swathed in heavy gear as you do in the winter time in the Midwest. This means that while you’re staying at Bay Point Landing, one of the great places to check out is the Golden and Silver Falls.
Golden and Silver Falls
Located 24 miles away from Coos Bay you’ll be able to enjoy a long leisurely drive through some beautiful countryside to get to the Golden and Silver Falls State Natural Area. This hidden gem is in the dense coastal forests of the state.
It can be a little hard to find, but GPS and a map will get you there. Once there you’ll see a small parking and picnic area on the banks of the Glenn and Silver Creeks in a picturesque setting of maple, alder and Oregon myrtle trees.
Once you’ve arrived you can enjoy a picnic and then hike through the scenic canyons in order to get to the amazing waterfalls that drop 100 feet to moss covered boulders. If this is your kind of thing, then you should consider hiking the 1.4 miles to the top of Golden Falls to see the amazing forest and falls from a bird’s eye view.
