Located well below 2,000 feet and just off I-90, Twin Falls makes a great year-round destination, especially when winter snows close many of the hikes farther up toward Snoqualmie Pass. This hike follows the rocky south fork of the Snoqualmie River and climbs to two significant waterfalls before connecting to a larger network of trails exploring Olallie State Park.

This was a nice hike up to the falls. It was well populated with kids and dogs but for a nice Sunday, was expected. After the falls, the trail leads to the freeway noise and a power plant. Not worth going further unless you want less traffic and don't mind the freeway below.

Great trail for kids & beginners (like me). We went up on a sunny Saturday and it was very relaxing & the falls were impressive. Lots of cars & people on a nice weekend day.

What a lovely hike through old growth forest along the river bank. We like to do this one with our kids, knowing it's nothing too difficult and the view of the waterfall as motivation. There are many fine trails in the area, but I highly recommend checking this hike out.

An easy, short hike with a beautiful payoff. The trail continues on, but most people just turn around at the falls. Be prepared for lots of families with kids and dogs on leashes.
