    Route Description for Twin Falls Trail

    Twin Falls Trail is a beautiful waterfall hike fairly close to Seattle. This hike is a top choice for families and beginner hikers and a very popular weekend spot. The falls aren’t difficult to reach, and you can keep hiking on the trail if you want a longer trip. Because of all of these perks, we do recommend coming early to avoid the weekend crowds.

    The hike begins from the trailhead near the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River. Walk alongside the river on Twin Falls Trail for half a mile. There are some small swimming holes on this stretch that can be nice for a quick dip.

    After a few winding turns, you’ll get a quick glimpse of the falls before passing through an old-growth grove. About 400 feet later, you’ll arrive at the lower falls viewpoint. This viewpoint is down a set of stairs and the best viewpoint of the falls, making it a good turn-around point for those short on time or who don’t want to complete the entire hike.

    Go back up the stairs and hike a quarter of a mile to a bridge crossing. Shortly after the bridge, the second viewpoint appears. This is still a beautiful spot, although it’s perhaps less impressive than the lower viewpoint. Turn around here and retrace your steps to the parking lot. The trail continues on, but it’s a ways further before eastbound hikers will find any worthwhile views.
