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).

Beautiful, lush, and worth the work! The path is a bit washed out and flooded at this time in April, so keep an eye on that. The waterfalls are amazing.

Great waterfall, just disappointed that the end of the trail was a gravel road, no grand view at the end.

Went on a Friday afternoon, not very crowded was a short hike to falls. Was a decent hike up the hill after the falls to the junction with the John Wayne trail. Will do more often as we cross the pass.

Great day for family hike. Busy so we parked on the road outside parking lot. Not muddy and river views were exceptional. A little up and down to get to falls but well worth the effort. Great for kids of all ages!

Mediocre hike with decent views of the waterfalls. May be better in the summer when you could walk down and enjoy sitting by the river. Not bad if you’re looking for a quick, short hike.

Beautiful waterfalls views.
Some mud, I would wear hiking shoes.
My puppy had a blast.
I would suggest going on a weekday, weekends seem to be packed with lots of people.

Views: Crystal clear river, old trees, two waterfalls.
Difficulty: Easy the inclines are spaced out and there's plenty of flat walking areas.
Trail conditions: Beginning of March- trail was muddy in some spots overall wasn't too bad. The trail didn't have as many people as Rattlesnake or Poo Poo Point.
Overall: This was a beautiful hike! We brought our dog, and he loved it!

Great hike! It was a bit muddy today but that is to be expected this time of year. (February 27th) We didn’t go to the very end but we made it up to the second fall lookout. Little to no snow on the ground. The trail is well maintained with a handful of sections of log stairs. The falls were incredible!

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.

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