Busy trail on a Sunday, but the views of the river and falls were well worth it.

on Twin Falls Trail

A good 3.7 mile hike round trip to the Twin and Upper Falls. The trail is well maintained and its a good workout as the trail is inclined for the most part. Be prepared for a number of steps. Good resting spots and a nice bridge to view the falls. I rated the trail 4* since there wasn’t anything too scenic or breathtaking sceneries at the end of the trail or on the way. Good workout and a refreshing break if you are looking for a quick drive from Seattle.

beautiful, just very busy trail!

Mostly dry and no snow or bugs. Great hike, hard on the knees on the way down.

This hike is nice and beautiful. It’s an easy hike up and a great place. Unlike Mount Si and Mailbox Peak Trail, this trail is not crowded at all. The view at top is gorgeous.

Trail condition is pretty good. There is a creek crossing that’s not bad at all. The upper 1.5 miles has a thin layer of snow (about 1”) but no microspikes are needed.

Parking usually is not a problem at this hike because it is less crowded.

My AllTrails recording says 8.2 mi round trip and 3287 ft elevation gain. It took us 3 hours and 45 minutes to do the whole hike up and down.

Very pretty, easy hike. It's great for a fall/winter hike when the skies aren't as clear. Can't believe how many big and small falls there are.

Great views and well maintained path. River was great to dip hands and feet in to cool down.

Unfortunately was really crowded on a warm August day which can be a downer when other people’s loud conversations and kids throwing rocks into the river is not the main point of going into nature.

Other than the too-many-people

Loved doing this trail in early October! Such a beautiful time of year here. The bridge for waterfall viewing was magic. The trail took us about 2 hrs out and back, and was much steeper than I had imagined, but a good workout.

I took my 7 Cubscouts on this trail yesterday. They were all so focused on getting up the steep path as fast as they could that they missed quite a bit of the scenery but I can’t wait to come back with a good camera! It was so beautiful! Definitely best enjoyed in the autumn.

Amazing trail, easy walk with some ascending in some parts (which is good for exercise). This trail is very rewarding!

Nice, short trail with great waterfalls at the end!! Be sure to go to both the upper and lower twin falls. The lower one is the taller one that’s straight down, the upper falls turn a few times. Once you get to the bridge to see the upper falls, keep going up a bit to see the top part of them. Very beautiful.

This is a treasure place close to city where provides numerous benefits in order to escape from the busy noise city. You can find a hidden magic place if you want to explore with curiosity. It’s likely good for any season and you can do a good exercise in the fresh air instead of getting gym membership. Save money but boosting our spirit and body! Enjoyable several natural things throughout the pathway.

We hiked the trail for the first time today and really enjoyed it. We were not prepared with the right gears and got soaked all the way up ! Hale and heavy rain. It is definitely a long long ascent and very steep ascent to the summit. We really enjoyed it tough!! The way down is tough due to the loose rocks. This trail is harder than mailbox peak in my opinion. One of the dog hikes with us and he did fine. A must do if you want a nice Sunday challenge.

Great short hike, disappointing waterfall but still nice to see

Hiked on 8/4/2018

This is a great place for beginners to hike rain or shine. It was a bit of a challenge for my two gamer children 11/16 yo. The falls are beautiful year round and are best viewed in the spring or after a good rain fall.

Arrive early this is a popular location. The lot was full by the time I made it back to the trailhead.

A discover pass will take care of your parking fee or pay by cc at the trailhead.

I’d agree that it’s a low-moderate hike if there were such a thing. Completely worth the drive out. Beautiful area. Do not skip the short trip down the stairs to the lower falls. Absolutely beautiful.

This is a great hike! Clear trail, lovely forest. I actually wouldn't call it an easy hike. Low moderate? There's a bit of up and down, so if easy for you means flat, this is not that. There is short portion at the beginning that is pretty rolling and easy, leading to the falls view that could be good for families, but beyond that it gets more moderate and the heart rate bumps a little. We did ~8 miles of hard hiking the day before and felt it in the calves. *thumbs up*

2018/07/08 Sunday (Hiking Date). Very good and beautiful river side hike. Good views. It is little challenging and calorie burning. Path is neat and well marked. I would go there again.

Great, little challenge. The parking is limited. Although you can park along side the road out of the main parking lot. There are bathrooms. The trail is a bit narrow in some parts. Great views all the way. I was surprised by the amount of people and dogs. Fun overall and spots to swim.

I would not label this trail “easy”. It’s all relative. I had two children 3 and 4. Moderate is more appropriate. Great views, naturesque.

Trail is easy to follow and maintained but it is pretty steep and it’s made of about 80% loose rocks which made it hard on the knees. The other part I didn’t care for was I could hear the interstate almost the entire time until I reached the last 1.2 miles. So it wasn’t really a peaceful “nature” escape from the city life but it was still a nice day hike. Heard a couple woodpeckers and even picked a couple huckleberries. Started at 10am and hit the peak at about 12:30. I choose a poor day to go because the top was nothing but fog but I got a few nice views on the way back down once I climbed back out of the mist/fog. I only saw a couple people on the way back down so foot traffic was almost none. It was a good, hard, work-out but definitely could have been in better shape before I tried it haha my dogs loved it and were pretty tired by the end.
