From Seattle, E on I-90 for 25 miles to exit 25 toward Snoqualmie City. Turn LEFT (at the bottom of the ramp) onto Highway 18/SE SNOQUALMIE PKWY. Drive 4 miles and Turn LEFT onto RAILROAD AVE SE / WA-202. Drive 0.5 mile to one of the parking lots on both sides of the road.

If you can only go on the weekends but you don’t want the heavy foot traffic, go early, and go when it snows! We took the short trail to the lower boardwalk today in the rain/slush, and the lower section was pretty secluded. Also worth checking out: the river access (just read and obey the posted signs). The trail features lots of nature and historic information on posts—pretty interesting! The falls are beautiful, but I gave it three stars because of the commercialized feel.

Closer to moderate, IMO - the way back up is all incline, some parts can be a bit slippery when wet. Can be very crowded but still really breathtaking. It wasn't too bad on the weekdays, was a madhouse when we went on a weekend (Niagara falls level of busy)

Great but very overcrowded, for good reason though.

Main reason for not liking this hike to much is because it’s overly crowded by tourists. During summer, parking is difficult to find. There is not much shade provided by trees. Can catch good views of the waterfall from overlooks. Dog-friendly.
