Snoqualmie Falls, Snoqualmie

4.7
#2 of 51 in Trails in Washington State
Featured in David Lynch's iconic TV series "Twin Peaks," Snoqualmie Falls remains one of the favorite scenic attractions in Washington State and a Native American burial site. A roaring misty waterfall tumbles down 82 m (268 ft); for the Native American tribe of Snoqualmie, this represents the meeting place of Heaven and Earth, where the first human couple were created. Follow the short hiking trail to a fenced observation deck with benches and picnic tables. The nearby attractions include a historic lodge, which also appeared in "Twin Peaks."

  • Only around 40 mins drive from Seattle. Very well organised with great viewpoints literally a few mins walk from the car park if you park at the top. You can then walk through the "forest" to the lowe...  more »
  • At great falls, see the dynamic of the topography of the United States. There are also hydroelectric power plants, and traditionally was done as it is. Hiking trails are very steep hill where is will be good exercise to

  • These falls and the long river are worth seeing more than once. Especially in the winter and if there's snow where white and frost make the atmosphere even more mystical and magical at the same time. A special holiday.

  • A good waterfall, but not as dramatic as I was expecting. We went in July, which is not the peak season (I'm assuming the peak is in spring, along with the snow melt). On the plus side, they had some nice tables for picnicking near the top of the falls. On the minus side, even in non-peak season, the parking situation was still a bit of a nightmare.
  • A beautiful spot! It’s a short trail to view the falls so it’s nice for people of all ages! You can chose to hike down to the base of the falls, and that trail can be steep, but it’s very short still! There’s always ample parking, though you do have to pay to park.
  • From the lot where the gift shop is you can walk 1/2 mile down hill to see the falls. There's also a view point at the top which is beautiful as well. Alternatively, there's a lot near the bottom viewpoint as well. You used to be able to going down into the rocks but they've fenced it off really well now... But there's river access if you follow the path in the opposite direction when you get to the bottom.
  • Loved this place the falls were rolling hard! Tried to take the trail down to where you could see the falls but ended up over by the the power station disappointing but my fault. The views from up top were still amazing.
  • Simply gorgeous views! This waterfall cascades down a lush, green belt. The surrounding area is equally beautiful! Regardless of whether you're there on a rainy day or a sunny day, this site is a sight for sore eyes!
