Probably won't do this again. You don't get a really great view unless you trespass and it's just a crowded walk most days. There is a nice beach like area but that's the most it has to offer.

As a Twin Peaks fan, it was incredibly exciting to walk here and take pictures of the falls. The actual trek is just an easy walk, but the views are amazing. A few people were walking their dogs when I was there in mid-May. I was absolutely freezing because I underestimated the temperatures outside, it started raining, and I hadn't layered my clothing correctly, but the beautiful scenery made everything worth it. They also have a nice gift shop, so check it out!

Did this one years ago but it is unforgetable.

I did this before I was a member and never logged it. I still remember the beautiful fall. Much higher than Niagara Falls.

Great trail for a nice walk to the river. It's currently CLOSED right now.

Good for kids? Maybe? Falls are neat, but the dam infrastructure kids ruins it. Just a walking trail, not a hike.

Kid and family friendly. Takes you down to the ever majestic Snoqualmie Falls. Nothing beats seeing the falls up close.

As a trail it's nothing special. But as a waterfall/Twin Peaks Lover you will have a great time.

Loved it! Hubby & I are beginner hikers and this was a nice short yet challenging start for us. It was pretty steep, but it was so short that it was over before we knew it. We checked out the river portion of the bottom of the hike & the rocks were fun to skip around. Then we checked out the boardwalk to the falls view at the river level and it was really nice and beautiful.

The falls are impressive. The hike less so. Wide, groomed and well traveled, it winds downhill to the river, then returns the same way - back up the hill. Nice, informative signs along the way about local flora and fauna.
Nice bathrooms, gift shop and food available. More of a sightseeing experience than hiking.

fun stop with the kiddos

Steep short hike, about 1.5 miles round trip. Very wide easy path to follow. It's a quick hike down, but a major calf burner on the way up. There's lot of good signage explaining the different plant and tree species you'll see also gives info on the history of the falls and environs.

For those less interested in the steep hike, there's a parking lot down below for easier access to the river.

Please remember to pack your trash people, there's lots of litter below the boardwalk down at the bottom.
