Twin Falls run year-round for one very good reason: the area around North Bend receives more than 90 inches of rain each year. Seattle—just 35 miles west—gets half that much. The South Fork Snoqualmie River takes that massive amount of rainfall and puts it to use entertaining hikers. The river squeezes into a narrow rocky gorge before tumbling over a very impressive stairstep falls. Then, when the water has been churned into a frothy torrent, it plunges over a 150-foot rock wall, creating the stunning cascade of the Lower Twin Falls.

Not at all crowded, at least in February, and an easy short hike on a well-maintained trail to nice views of the falls.
