A perfect little hike! Should be rated moderate, as it is a steep incline most of the way up, but the view from the top of the lookout building is more than worth it. I would do it again in a heartbeat

Cool place! Amazing amount of flowers and a wonderful waterfall! Definitely do the loop trail! We took our 5 and 8 year old girls and they did fine.

We did this last week and the trail was 90% snow covered. We camped at dog lake on the only pad of dirt, and lake was still frozen. It was beautiful.

Beautiful loop, a bit steep if you go all the way down but it's worth it. The few sequoia remaining are incredible too!

Love this sweet, short, and serene hike! A great stroll just after dinner ;)

Beautiful Mother's Day hike!

Good hike, pretty steep. Didn’t finish it this time so can’t speak of the view(s) on top. Soon as you get to the bridge, keep going straight UP.

Favorite hike to date! Gorgeous views

very beautiful trail, easy and short, well marked. View is so good, water is raging, feels so good to watch it!

Prepare for bears! Be willing to cross rapid creek to get to Lake Elizabeth. Road is washed out at 2.3 Miles from Miller river road.

Access road closed so trail was inaccessible beginning of May

Great hike to a beautiful falls! A few stream crossings that aren't too difficult but you should feel comfortable with your balance. Trail up to Otter Falls is a left hand turn off the main trail and is marked with cairns and pink tape.

Ten mile out and back easy beautiful day hike. Low elevation until you get to the sign for Otter Falls, which takes you into the the trees straight up. Don't worry it's a refreshing 5 min (if that) climb that is truly rewarding.

Loved Snoquera Falls! We logged about 5 miles and had no trouble at all finding it. At the top, the falls were running real heavy, & we had to navigate through some water using rocks to step our way through to continue the loop on the other side (all part of the adventure)
Hiking poles really helped on the water crossings.
Highly recommend this hike for a season opener!

This trail is currently closed due to landslide activity. The ranger said it would likely be closed for at least a year because of the number of trees/debris falling into the trail. It could be less time than that but it is definitely closed in May/June from my understanding. The Pratt River Trail No. 1035 is open though and just goes the other way down the river. Easy and good views. [rating 5 stars regardless b/c just want to get this info out here]

It’s a little confusing to get there. From highway 410 (coming from Enumclaw), take a left on the sign that says Camp Sheppard Trailhead. There you will find the parking lot on your right as well as the bathrooms. There is a sign that marks the starting point to Snoquera falls. At the beginning of the trail you meals it to an amphitheater (wooden house) from there just keep going straight until you reach the next sign. The next sign is torn down so just make a left and your on the trail to Snoquera. Very easy hike, less than 4 miles round trip. No snow on this day and perfect for the entire family of a solo hike. Not trafficked, only like 2 or 3 other people there. I lost signal 30 minutes before getting there so make sure you save directions. Gorgeous views and highly recommended!

One of the most beautiful falls in Washington!! Pictures do NOT do this Falls justice!! Go just past Otter Falls about 3 minutes and see Big Creek Falls as well!! Amazing!!

Must see, beautiful trail and well maintained, along with informational posts around the loop. Several raging waterfalls just add to the tranquil setting. Another hike adjoining this trail to add extra walking/hiking..Family friendly, along with parking and bathroom facilities (however, closed up when went yesterday 4/23)

great hike, gorgeous views.

The main trailhead is washed out so to get up to the peak, you must park at the main parking lot and use the little path next to the trailhead. It'll bring you out to the main road.. take a left and walk to the bridge. On the right side, you'll see a little trail.. this will bring you up to the main trail and bypass all of the debris. It was a leg burner but was BEAUTIFUL and WARM out. Lots of little mosquitos so I would suggest bug spray. We ate lunch at the balcony and hiked on back and played in the river under the bridge. Would absolutely suggest this hike, especially on a sunny day,

nice easy hike, alot of the trail signs were broken in half or unreadable so we ended up on two other trails and had to back track, and then we got less into the actual camp. trail was a bit confusing but a good short hike.

who knew this was here!? I've lived in enumclaw most of my life and had no idea. Beautiful falls, not a strenuous hike, and had time to take a short trip around Moss Lake. there was no one else up there, we had it all to ourselves. weather was good, only a little snow at the base of the falls.

Deep snow about a mile to the lake. We made it and stayed the night but I don’t think most will. Wait a month or so.. if you’re actually going to snoqualmie lake, plan on doing between 17 to 20 miles.

All year great hike! Nice bout of exercise with a great reward by nature in an hour

It was a little muddy. But well worth it.

Hmmm, not sure how to describe this hike. I am giving it four starts if you do it with some snow on the ground making it a little more challenging. The hike back was a little boring especially after the miles started adding up and the scenery of an old logging road became etched in my brain. Probably a good trail running trail as others had mentioned. This was a great hike for spring as it had some snow and the lake was still frozen. The falls on the way were awesome as was some of the sun shining on some of the peaks that we saw early on in the hike. I wouldnt say its a hard hike as much as a long hike. I think as a through hike it would be awesome when the snow melts. Also an excellent hike for someone that might do the Enchantments in one day as its the same distance but only about half the elevation gain. If you do this one at a fast pace you can do the Enchantments enjoying yourself!

We loved this trail and hiked to the falls. It was beautiful and would definitely go again. We hiked a total of about 8 miles.

the trail was easy to find with the picture of the gate already posted. The issue was there was no markings to follow. One trail followed along the stream and ended, the other trail went up to the bridge that didnt have any signs for zig zag. We went left and walked accross the bridge and say multiple rock climbers but the trail was a road. Some cool views but without the signs we didn't do the intended hike.

Beautiful day up there! A little muddy in places but not bad at all.

Plenty of snow on the way up to the falls. Even more on the way down the loop. Poles and spike were needed. Fun trail.
