Getting There

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.

Park at the gravel parking lot near the headquarters building

From Interstate 90 eastbound, take Exit 38, and turn right off the exit ramp. Drive eight-tenths of a mile, and turn left into the park entrance (to reach the eastern trailhead for Twin Falls, go farther south, take the gravel road on the right on the first curve after you leave the exit ramp). From I-90 westbound, take Exit 38 and turn left at the end of the exit ramp. Drive 1.3 miles and turn right into the park entrance.

Easy trail. We parked further up, there were only 2 regular parking spots. The lower parking spot has a side trail that takes you next to the water. With 2 kids, this was perfect.

Quick, easy and near Seattle. Brought our 2 year old and had no problems at all. Beautiful scenery with some old growth.

Great short hike for when you need some respite from I90 you without spending too much time. Flat and has bathrooms at beginning and end. Kids could definitely do it. We ignored the closed sign (for covid) and did it and saw only one other person on the trail. There are short little side trails. Some spots you can go down to the river and could possibly fish. There was a bench at at least one.

trial was just right. slight muddy with a few pot holes but easy to get around by stepping on fallen trees. thank you mother nature for life. perfect time to go due to amount of water flow. close your eyes, take some deep breaths, listen to your surroundings and feel how your soul becomes joyful cause of God creation. enjoy!

Absolutely beautiful falls!!! Very muddy, but super easy trail. Costs $10 to park unless you have a pass.

Amazing little day hike. The waterfall is beautiful from so many angles, there are tons of spots to reach the water and the path is easy for anyone to travel. Go spend the morning taking a walk here you won’t be disappointed!

Short and sweet. You can hear the water running the whole time. Could take a jogging stroller on trial. Pretty falls!

It’s a short easy trail but perfect with kids. We had our 4 and 2 year old and they loved exploring the forest, throwing rocks in the river and the waterfall at the end. Would definitely recommend it!

We went on a Sunday morning and there was probably a dozen people around 11am. Great place to have a picnic beside the river. There were families with dogs and babies/kids and the hike is short and flat, we were the only 3 on the hike and it was really nice. The river is beside you all the way. When you reach the end there is a beautiful waterfall. Kid friendly, no effort at all to see the waterfall. Loved it.

I was very hesitant to go on this hike as I was worried that it would be too short for the kids. However there is so much to do on this hike. Lots of offshoot hikes to the river. Giant trees and stumps to climb, signs to read and the falls is really much more impressive than I expected. It is short, but it is a really nice hike for kids

Snowed,hailed and rained during my hike and it was AMAZING! A quick, fun trail with a lot of little trails that take you to the river. Took the fork to the right on the way to the falls and took the other trail on the way back and it felt like I was on a completely different hike. I highly recommend this trail. Nice big parking lot too although I was the only one there today.

Took a hike in the rain and I’m glad I did! We parked close to the ranger house and you can take a peak at the river before you start your hike. The trail is easy to follow and there is a fork but don’t worry, both of the paths will take you to the fall viewing area. Bathroom by the falls Incase you feel the urge to go.

Didn't have 10 dollars for a day pass so I didn't get to experience nature.

I was actually surprised how nice the waterfall was. It was hot and smoky so this was our alternative hike. Low effort and nice waterfall views.

Short trail but kid friendly. Take swimsuits and water shoes if you want to play in the slow moving river. Also, state park ranger came through and my pass wasn't valid here. There's apparently a difference between an epass and a discover pass. One is state and one is federal. This park is a state park but some parks in Washington are federal.

It's good for family to enjoy the nature, go picnic, and play in the water.
