Snoqualmie Falls, Snoqualmie

(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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." Put Snoqualmie Falls and other Snoqualmie attractions into our Snoqualmie trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • I drove about 4 hours round trip (from southwest WA) to view the falls. I was hoping that there would have been more snow since the part of Washington I live in has at least a fresh 6 inches on the gr...  more »
  • The history is interesting as well as the vista. One can access the bottom of the Falls by a steep walk down or by car, taking Route 202 to the Hatchery Road where a new park has been built with a boa...  more »
  • An impressive water fall in impressive surroundings. Busy even on a winter's day between Xmas and NY. Lots of signs explaining the history of the falls and hydro-power. Nice souvenir shop and plenty o...  more »
  • Gorgeous. Easy to access and beautiful hiking trails. You would never guess that the waterfall is located so close. A great trip for the whole family- ease of access is perfect for very young or older family members + you can make it more involved with hiking trails
  • Super cool place with wonderful trails and gorgeous forests! My wife took me there for my birthday and I can't imagine a better way to spend one's birthday! The waterfalls are a stunning sight. Go! You gotta see it and you will love it.
  • When we went it was jam packed crowded; however several areas to park. Be prepared to walk with some inclines if not parked next to the entrance. Beautiful photo opps. Very clean and well maintained!!! If you have pets/dogs they are welcome.
  • Beautifully gorgeous! It was really a treat watching the falls, with the train going by on the mountain. The gift shop has really neat, local product's. I got a mocha with pumpkin bread from the cafĂ©, which was delicious, and served with a friendly smile :)
  • Absolutely beautiful. Easy drive from anywhere near Seattle. I plan to go back many more times. The lookout area is a very close walk from the parking lot. A short hike (~1m) will get you down to the bottom.
