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.

  • If you are visiting Seattle, take the short trip East to Snoqualmie and see the Falls. You will not be disappointed. The Snoqualmie Falls are beautiful. There is easy access to excellent viewing spots...  read more »
  • Love a good waterfall. Steep but quick hike to the bottom. So close to town, a must see for those in Seattle. 
  • The falls were beautiful even on the rainy day we had. Grounds are breading kept but not much is there to do especially if training. 
  • 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.
  • Oh my universe! Now that's a waterfall! Took my breath away. So beautiful and calming. You must go a see it, don't even debate it, take the drive and go see it! Updat: a year later visiting again during warm weather. Still breathtaking, even more! Definitely if you can hike down to the river and just relax there! All around you is just so beautiful when you are down there and the river sound adds to the whole experience!
  • I liked it for many reasons: 1. Easy to get to, walk to... no hiking involved, unlike twin falls near here. 2. Great view of the waterfall. 3. 25 minutes to Seattle w/o. traffic.
  • This place is a must see if you are in the Seattle area. Water falls roughly 100 feet taller than Niagara Falls. The lodge was seen in the television series Twin Peaks years ago. Beautiful surroundings, well worth a visit. If you are into hiking, an easy hike from the top down to the bottom of the falls is well worth the time. Love this place.
  • Fantastic place to step away from cityscapes and revel in peaceful scenery. Heavily trafficked, superb place to come equipped with camera, selfie stick and throng of family or friends. Great and easy downhill towards the bottom of the river, not so easy trudging uphill against the grain of foot traffic. Plenty of felled logs to park a tired rumpus on!
