Getting There

The Discover Pass is required for vehicular entrance to this park. An Annual Pass costs $30 and a Day Pass is $10. This is a lovely hike up to the waterfall that follows the river. The trail can be muddy and wet so you may want waterproof shoes.

From Seattle, east on I-90 to exit 34. Turn right onto 468th Ave SE and travel 0.5 miles to 159th St. Turn left and travel 0.5 miles to the trailhead at the end of the road.

Washington State Parks and Recreation P.O. Box 42650 Olympia, Wa 98504 Tel: 360.902.8844

Discover Pass is required. Dogs on leash. Avoid the summer crowds by visiting on a weekday. Parking at the trailhead is limited.

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).

Trail was short and nice! I would not recommend the part after the upper fall view, there’s really nothing to see at the end... but the views at the bridge and the other viewing points before that were pretty nice!!

Trail isn’t marked well at all so it’s confusing to keep on the right trail vs continuing onto the John Wayne/ rattlesnake ledge trail. Trail was also very busy with people

Absolutely beautiful! Had a great time hiking here. There were a few downed trees in the path and it was pretty muddy.

Quiet on a Tuesday. Didn’t do the full trail because it got quite windy and icy pretty suddenly.

Beautiful at the lower falls. It was nice to get into nature. At the beginning there was five down trees, easy to get over! There was only a couple small sections where I-5 could be heard, but no bother at all. Trails condition was overall great. On a busy day, the parking lot wouldn't be able to fit many cars. (recording is off, it stopped before we got to the falls)

little bit icy the further you got along the trail, but wasnt bad at all. got there around 9am and was basically empty. headed back around noonish, and the amount of people picked up a little bit, but still wasnt over crowded. good first time

HikingGreat!

It’s a very beautiful short hike, good for kids. I was very impressed with the first waterfall, it’s just beautiful. Don’t go until the end of the hiking, unless you want to do some extra exercise. After the waterfalls, there is no view and you can hear the road. After the bridge, you have 1 last waterfall and that’s it.

It was ok. Really no views. I was hoping I could get close to the waterfall. You just see it from a bridge that’s it. At the very top is a road was expecting a view.

HikingGreat!

The trail was entertaining for our family with two kids aged 9 and 12 years. We got there around noon on 2/6/21 and were able to find parking spot near to the entrance. Restrooms were also nearby. The snoqualmie river along the river is awesome and provides spots for a great photoshoot. My kids had great fun. Attraction is best. The trail is bit muddy at some places, but overall it is very good and my kids were able to manage it. Our experience is recorded at https://youtu.be/WolYhmzREjA

Trail is in good condition but muddy. There are 2 down trees that can easily be crossed. Get there early on the weekends as the parking lot is full by 10am.
