“As seen in Twin Peaks”

Snoqualmie Falls is a 268-foot waterfall in the northwest United States, located east of Seattle on the Snoqualmie River between Snoqualmie and Fall City, Washington. It is one of Washington's most popular scenic attractions, but is perhaps best known internationally for its appearance in the cult television series Twin Peaks. More than 1.5 million visitors come to the Falls every year, where there is a two-acre park, an observation deck, and a gift shop. Most of the river is diverted into the power plants, but at times the river is high enough to flow across the entire precipice, which creates an almost blinding spray. High water occurs following a period of heavy rains or snow followed by warm rainy weather. This can occur during the rainy season which lasts from November through March. During high water, the falls take on a curtain form.

I love it hear. It's beautiful. Our dog loved greeting all the others on the trail. Only reason for four stars is the amount of bathrooms up at top of falls the ladies room had three stalls and there was a line of 10 or so on a weekday at 11 am so I can only imagine what it would be like on weekends

Beautiful Falls! Very easy to get to, park and walk to see. Also wheelchair accessible. We did not have time to spend in the town of Snoqualmie, but would have loved to explore. VERY cute looking town with small restaurants and shops.

Very nice falls with a view from above and below. Lots of signs to teach you about the area as well! Coffee in the gift shop is great too!

Absolutely B-e-a-utiful!! Park, right away you can see the waterfall from an upper view, no hiking. You can also hike , from the upper view (1 mile) down to go even closer to the falls ( or you can park at the end of the hike ). Where the trail ends isn't as close as you would like it but you can hop the fence (waist height).and get closer. I've did it and many other and its absolutely breath taking.

The thundering waters of Snoqualmie Falls are just a short drive from Seattle and perfect for an afternoon trip out in nature.

The falls have a reputation for their grandeur, so much so that they receive more visitors a year than any other Washington waterfall. Their rushing waters add to the sounds of chirping birds and the rustle of leaves, creating the perfect ambiance for a hike through the 2-acre park around the falls. Snoqualmie Falls is family-friendly, with free parking and viewing areas, and it’s handicap accessible. You can even bring your dog to the park!

We think a visit here is one of the best day trips from Seattle!

Beautiful area. Just be aware it costs to park. After tax it cost just over $8 to park for 1 hour in the parking lot at the falls.
