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).

Great shirt hike with varying levels of difficulty. I got stung for the first time on the way down by a wasp. But overall wonderful.

Nice trail. We made it to the waterfall and then turned back around. Was warm when we went and definitely worked up a sweat on the way up!

Great trail. Plenty of small stones for sure footing. Huge Douglas Fir to see, plenty of river and waterfall views. Big parking lot. Pet and kid friendly.

Didn’t do the full trail. Just ended up hitting the several different viewpoints of the waterfall and turned back. There’s 3 specific view points and you should try to hit them all. The trail is pretty easy. Get there early since it gets packed pretty quick. We arrived at 8am. Left at 11am and the parking lot was packed.

This was a great hike. This place was so cool. There were so many places to go and check out the river that we never finished the trail.

Ok, a bit crowded. Lots of people smoking weed but the waterfall and river are pretty.

fun and challenging for 4 kids ages 2-11 (2yo was carried) the falls are a great destination.

Discover pass required. There are bathrooms next to parking area. Over grown at the beginning of trail, very busy, and lots of dogs. Beautiful hike but do not recommend for beginners. My husband and I went past the bridge and there was nothing interesting to see.

3 beautiful views. Be sure to take the steps on the right around the 1 mile mark to the middle view. This is the best view of the falls. No significant views beyond about 0.1 mile from the bridge and a bit overgrown.

Bring grandma this is literally a walk in the woods. The first waterfall is cooler then the one at the bridge. We kept going past the last waterfall and ended up on a cool road, take a right and you can walk to rattlesnake left and get to Snoqualmie pass.

Very nice trail for all abilities. Chance to swim/wade in the river. Nice views of the waterfalls. Fairly heavily trafficked for a midweek midday hike but I definitely would recommend it.

Very well maintained trail, got there by 8 and we had it mostly to ourselves on the way up, have hiking poles during rainy season as their were some slick spots. Gorgeous views at the lookout of the falls. Coming down around 930 it was getting very crowded as we got closer to the end/beginning of the hike. So definitely recommend going early!

For my first hike in a long while, it was a nice short hike. And maybe it's because I went later in the day but the trail was barely populated.

Great water views. Not much in the way of grand views after that second waterfall lookout, but there are some nice switchbacks before grown-in paths if you do decide to keep going.

Nice trail that's close! Went yesterday (Wednesday), so wasn't crowded. Only issue is people need to stay on the trail and pack out their garbage. A Discover Pass is required, but there is a pay station at the trailhead.

Did this yesterday with my two boys and we had so much fun!!! So proud of them! The views were honestly soooo pretty and the trail was sooo cool!! Lots of little water spots, awesome big trees, and trail was well maintained. I loved it! The waterfall was awesome! We got to see people jumping off some of the points which was awesome!! This has a few spots that get your heart pumping decent work out! But overall easy enough for any skill level. Highly would recommend this trail and totally want to do it again.

Very beautiful falls and a well maintained trail. If you want to enjoy the nature go early. By 9am the parking lot got full.

Nice easy trail to some gorgeous falls! The distance is actually closer to 3 miles, the trail on the app leads you all the way to the John Wayne Trail connection. However, the last viewpoint is really on the bridge above the falls. Would definitely recommend! We went on a cloudy day instead of doing a hike with better views due to visibility and were not dissapointed.
