I will be in Portland early October and am planning a day trip to either the Columbia River Gorge or Silver Falls State Park to see the waterfalls. Unfortunately, my trip is short so I can't go to both and I can't decide between the two. If you had to choose between the two, which would you recommend and why? Are the waterfalls better at one area than the other during this time?
Just a side note, I am 5 months pregnant so I'm limiting myself to shorter trails. I usually hike 5+ miles, difficult trails but I want to take it easy since I'm pregnant.
Thank you all in advance!
