“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.

Easy to find off the road, parking is $7 for up to 2 hours, picnic area and view points are nicely maintained and easily accessible.

Absolutely beautiful, with a nice hike available if you’re wanting to make the most use of your time and parking cost.

Snoqualmie is a beautiful city, and Snoqualmie Falls is no different. We first saw Snoqualmie Falls from the Snoqualmie Train that we took from the Norwest Railway Museum. From that, you can see the top of the falls, a good pic of the Salish Lodge, but the best views are at Snoqualmie Falls Park. There are some handicap spots (which are free w/parking pass), and limited number of regular parking spots for $7. Right after we parked we saw a parking meter attendant, so it seems to be monitored pretty closely. There was also another lot across the road and up a bit, but it would be quite a walk for those with more extreme mobility issues. There were also signs in the parking lot further away from the falls that it's a high theft area, so I wouldn't want to park there anyways. There is a sign which makes a nice photo opp right in front of the parking area. After parking at the handicap area of Snoqualmie Falls Park, it's a short walk to the Falls going slightly right. If you go left, there are steps, which may be difficult for some. There was a Puget Sound Energy informational area to the right as well. As you come upon the viewing area of the falls, you can see the Salish Lodge to the left. The Falls had a mist and the it made for beautiful photos. There were birds flying overhead and several trees surrounding the water. There was a picnic area with picnic tables surrounded by several large trees. This is a very nice park, and we'd definitely return if in the area.
