This marked trail contains a nice walk through an old-growth forest to a viewpoint of Weeks Falls. At the east end of Olallie State Park, this elongated trail loops through a forest dominated by cedars and hemlocks to an overlook of Weeks Falls. Located on the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River, a power plant here uses the energy of this series of cascades to generate electricity. Since rainbow and cutthroat trout and sculpin live in the vicinity of the falls, the plant is operated only when more water is present in the river than the fish need to thrive and reproduce. A sign diagrams the layout of the plant, including a 600-foot underground tunnel.

Hike through a very short, relatively unmarked trail then you'll reach the falls. It's pretty intuitive and is essentially a walk more than a hike. If you hike to see water this is perfect for you. Lots of look outs into the beautiful emerald green river, with mountains in the background. Then a lookout spot next to the falls. A little more developed than I expected but perfect for a quick stop or a nature walk with kids.

I completed this trail in July of 2011 with some friends and some of the kids. The weather was beautifu and the evening sun was low on the horizon. The walk through the forest is great and if you take the route farthest from the river you will find a number of interesting artifacts and a massive old tree. The powerplant near the falls was interesting to explore and the viewpoint is nice.
