Snoqualmie Falls Trail

Snoqualmie Falls Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A short hike to the base of a 268-foot waterfall, so beautiful the Indians considered it a sacred place, is easy at any time of year. Puget Power has harnessed the waterfall’s force and provided the combination of road and trail, but the rocky riverbed beach, sandbars, bedrock benches, caves, and pools have been appropriated by kids and families. On one hot summer day, believe it or not, we saw fishermen trying their luck in the pool directly below the falls.

Parents were carrying tiny babies in backpacks, a nine year old told me he had made it to the other side of the river by swimming across, and several six to eight year olds were exploring water-carved caves directly below the observation platform 268 feet above. Despite the crowd, there was no sense of invasion of privacy because the roar of water drowned out all voices."

great trail . easy ,fun and great for tourists or first timers to Seattle - , but under construction and closed till 2013
Great view and easy trail to hike. Its all downhill to the falls - so obviously the hike back up is a little more strenuous, but its a short trail (a mile?) so its quick and painless.
