Snoqualmie, Washington Map

Moderately difficult, good ups and downs, rewarding view

Great views of magnificent falls from the top and bottom of this trail. Make sure to go all the way to the end of the boardwalk to get the lower view. The upper lookup was packed by the time we left. If not for the crowds, this would be a 5. It's a 5 star view, nice trail, can be a little crowded.

5/23/2017 (Tuesday) -- Sunny, cloudless, 72-76F in the woods, 80+F in city. Cool, not hot in the woody trail. Light traffic. Trail is in good condition. Mud and snow are gone. Downfalls are partly cleared. On the logging road as a detour, Mt Rainier is fully in sight.

Great route either starting from the west or east if you are smart about times to avoid the crowds. Trail is soft ground for the most part, well shaded, and great lookout stops along the way. Creek at about mile three (coming from the west) is flowing strong right now for any dog companion folks out there.

Note that as of 5/14 the trail is closed at Prospect Overlook due to timber industry work so cannot connect end to end at the moment. Check their website before attempting to cross through to see whether it has reopened. I ran this and still got a good ~8 mile out and back despite the closure.

Although this hike is rated as moderate, it's on the easier side then some other moderate rated hikes. It's not overly populated with people hiking it. The view at the end is not as rewarding as many of the other hikes in the I90 corridor. Great little hike for beginners.
