Silver Falls Park

20024 Silver Falls Hwy SE, Sublimity, OR

Open to the Public

Parts of the tree top scenes when Edward takes Bella high up into the tree canopy were filmed at Silver Falls, and so was the deer chase scene at the opening of the movie. The close up shots of Edward and Bella in the tree canopy, overlooking the river and forest, were shot at Beacon Rock & Cape Horn in WA.

Stunt doubles (Helena Barrett and Paul Darnell) used cable and harness to glide between trees for part of the Edward-Bella scene. Filming was done at the south end of the park, near Parking Lot F and at the Howard Creek Horse Camp.

This park has tent, cabin, and RV camping available, as well as hiking, biking, horse trails, swimming, and restrooms. About half of the crew camped here during filming. Dogs are allowed on a leash, but be aware that lots of wildlife, including black bear and mountain lions, make Silver Falls their home. What do you want to bet that Edward and Emmett would love to hunt here? ;-)

From the park service: “Please do not pick or dig flowers, ferns, bushes or any other plants. It is also unlawful to harass or capture wild animals.”

Pictures, park maps and memories.
