Trail shared by Duy Tran

A classic family-friendly route through old growth trees with a spectacular waterfall in the mix.

Family Friendly Moderate elevation and wide trails make it a great family trail leading to a scenic waterfall.


A classic Washington trail that meanders along the Snoqualmie River, through old growth forests, and eventually opening up to the spectacular lower and upper Twin Falls. A moderate elevation gain combined with wide trails make this a family friendly outing.

Need to Know

The close proximity to many larger metropolitan areas makes this a heavily used trail during the weekends. Weekday use is highly recommended.


This classic route provides easy access to the river along with plentiful open spaces and overlooks allow hikers of all skills and ages to go at their own pace. Just off of the I-90 exit 34 in North Bend, the trail is accessible for all of Western Washington.

Of special note: This popular trail was closed at the beginning of 2014 and reopened in May of 2016. Heavy rainfall and erosion wiped out a key section of the trail but through the work of EarthCorps, a local nonprofit, the trail was rerouted and rebuilt so the community could once enjoy the iconic Twin Falls.

This popular trail climbs steadily from the start to two stunning views of lower and upper Twin Falls. The climb is steady with a few steeper sections mixed in. You'll eventually cross the river on a bridge where you have a nice view of upper Twin Falls.

From here, the Twin Falls Trail continues to climb until it comes to a junction with the John Wayne Pioneer Trail: Hyak to Rattlesnake Lake. As this is an out-and-back hike you can customize the distance and turn around whenever you area ready to head back to the trailhead.

A nice New Year's hike. Although a bit muddy from the rain and tree cover, strap on your boots and see the waterfalls from multiple vantage points. Great couple hour hike for the family. Wouldn't suggest smaller children or strollers to go to the top but there are some fun rocks for them to climb on. Jan 8, 2018
