Enjoy an easy hike through the Cascade foothills to a beautiful set of waterfalls, only 30 minutes from downtown Seattle. This popular trail follows the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River through the rainforests along the western edge of the Cascade Mountains. The trail provides spectacular views of Twin Falls. Most people park at the Twin Falls Trailhead located off of Exit 34 on I-90. A little over a mile from the trailhead, a set of stairs descends to a viewpoint of the Lower Falls as they plunge over a 150 foot cliff. Hike another quarter mile to a bridge that spans the narrow Twin Falls canyon. From the bridge you can see several plunge pools of the Upper Falls upstream and the edge of the Lower Falls downstream. Less than a quarter mile from the bridge is a view of the Upper Falls from above. Most visitors turn around at this point as the trail starts climbing steeply. Those hearty enough to continue will find that, the trail intersects with the John Wayne Pioneer Trail in a little under a mile. The John Wayne Pioneer Trail is a 108 mile long trail that follows the old Chicago-Milwaukee-St. Paul-Pacific Railroad from Cedar Falls to Vantage. Hike east along the Pioneer Trail for a quarter mile to reach the Olallie State Park Homestead Valley Trailhead (located off I-90 Exit 38).

Snoeshoed from the road closure to the falls and back. 7.8 miles round trip. Great workout in wet snow.

Family friendly hike with rushing river views and, of course, the beautiful Twin falls. If you don't mind getting a bit muddy, then this makes for a great January outing.

Fairly well trafficked trail by families, dogs and hikers of all ages,shape and size. It’s a rocky well maintained trail that’s a bit muddy. But the mud is to be expected on a January rainy day. If you forget your Discover pass you can buy a day pass at the trail head with cash or at the Ace Hardware that’s 10mins before the trail.

Great hike on a surprisingly warm day (almost 60) on a muddy and busy trail. The river and falls are beautiful, with plenty of opportunities to take in the scenery and some awesome pictures. I continued on to the trail head for the Mt. Washington trail to hit a geocache, overall, this is a great hike and one I will definitely return to in the summer.

Great little trail, some of it was a little washed out and in need of repair, but really a great hike. Beautiful falls.

Easy hike with a couple inclines thrown in. No snow, and heavily forested for most of the hike. Dog friendly!

Trail is well cared for, beautiful. But more of a moderate hike for newer hikers on the cardiovascular side. :) worth it though

Great beginner hike. Good for kids and dog-friendly. Not recommended on a wet day as it can get very slippery and muddy. A lot of shade provided by the amount of trees. Directions from WTA is easy to find. Get a Discovery Pass to park!
