It has everything you want - a viewpoint, beautiful nature and a cool river to chill by. I even saw a cave below the falls too. It is just a 30min drive away from Seattle area. The hike is not an issue at all. Why dont more people come here??!!

What a lovely place! Very scenic, with a beautiful, clear stream and walking trails through the lush woods along the water.

Went hiking to Twin Falls on one of the free state parks days. I am quite over weight and I was able to hike all of the way up to the upper falls which is a little past where most people turn around. Great views. Beautiful scenery. Not much parking. Be prepared for lots of foot & dog traffic if going on a weekend. Hardly any place to sit and have a picnic lunch at.

If you don't go on a free state park weekend you will need a discover pass.

One of the things I love most about living within metro Seattle is the near immediate access to many excellent trails, that offer a variety of skill levels and scenic views.

Hoping to find one within easy reach, I chose to explore the Twin Falls trail, just outside of North Bend, Washington, at exit 34 off of Interstate 90. The trail lies within Olallie State Park, which has a number of features, including Twin Falls, Weeks Falls, the South Fork picnic area, and the Iron Horse State Park Trail.

A short trail (1/2 mile to the Twin Falls overlook, and another rough 1/2 mile before intersecting the Iron Horse Trail), it is not unlike many others, superb for families, those with dogs, or those looking for a leisurely walk through the woods. The trailhead is well equipped with restrooms and information about the area, and parking is adequate, but only offers about thirty spaces and fills up quickly, so plan on early arrival (I arrived around 9 AM on a Sunday and got the last spot before the overflow parking started). When I left at 11:30 AM, the road to the trail had at least a mile's worth of cars parked on the berm.

The first part of the trail lies within beautiful old growth trees, and follows along the edge of the Snoqualmie River South Fork, where you can easily access the river's edge, and get some spectacular views of the valley, large boulders, nice wildflowers, and even spot an occasional fly fisherman.

As you turn away from the trail, the path quickly becomes steep, with a number of switchbacks, but there are virtually no technical challenges, save a fallen log or two across the path.

Now normally, I am not critical of most trails, because they are either well marked and/or obvious as to where they lead. To the traveler that approaches the trail from the west, do NOT ignore the long, multi-tiered set of steps that go DOWNWARDS BEFORE you reach the overlook at what you THINK are the Twin Falls. While heading eastward, I completely ignored these, believing it was only leading to an overlook. An overlook INDEED! This IS the vista point for Twin Falls (only 1/2 mile in), an incredible, lacy, velvety, 100+ foot tall waterfall that is a sight to behold (though the name "Twin Falls" is somewhat befuddling). It IS the highlight of the trail!! Why it is unmarked is an absolute mystery; had I not "taken a chance" on the return route, I would have missed this fabulous sight! In fact, I "warned" many people coming up the trail to be sure not to miss these stairs. TO THE READER HERE: DO NOT MISS THESE!

Should you continue up the trail past Twin Falls, you will cross a lovely wooden bridge that looks down upon the water, about seventy feet below, and also at another small waterfall to the North. Continue on to another few sets of small stairs, and another beautiful waterfall awaits you, at a nice overlook.

Beyond this point the trail meanders into heavy forest, with no real vantage points, towards the Iron Horse trail. At this point, there is a great deal more noise from the valley through which interstate 90 passes; I decided against completing the path, and turned back.

For a simple, family friendly hike, I recommend Twin Falls as a convenient getaway that is easy to get to, has some decent beauty, and is not overly technical. Just don't miss the Falls themselves - they are absolutely delightful.

Switch back path to the falls which is all down hill from the parking lot. Went on a rainy day and it got worse as the trail progressed. Very pretty and nice falls at the end. Be prepared to walk a lot and remember that it's all uphill on the way back.

Get your Discover Pass (state parks parking) and head to Olallie. It's at Exit 38, on the south side of I-90. The part that is most interesting is the long skinny section south of South Fork Snoqaulmie River and north of SE Homestead Valley Rd, accessed by a turnoff on the left just east of where all the semi trucks park and where the climbers park to access Deception Crags.

In this long skinny section, take the Weeks Falls trail. It's magnificent. The scenic river churns along right near the trail. You'll go through some scattered quite-large timber (western redcedar, Sitka spruce, etc.) including a few isolated trees up to 8' in diameter at the base. There's one western redcedar with a hollow base that looks like kids wriggle into it.

Sitka spruce usually hug the Pacific coast, venturing inland only in the major west-facing river valleys. The Snoqualmie River valley is one of them, with old Sitka spruce scattered here and there. There are quite a few around the Exit 38 area, with a huge one at Olallie.

At the eastern end of the trail is a tiny parking lot with a great view of the falls ... It's more like a cascade than a falls, but gorgeous nonetheless.

Olallie is a small park that you can visit as a side-trip in the North Bend area or on your way to or from Snoqualmie Pass on I-90. It's a surprising little gem.

This place isn't a huge state park but between the water fall, trails and big timber it's a great place to get out of town and take in some nature!

I was looking for twin falls, but navigation was no good and came across this gorgeous place. Went on a sunday and was packed not much parking place. Has amazing views, hicking trail was hard going up with little ones some areas where really narrow. But fell in love with what it had to offer. I would go back again.

Nice small park. Easy access from I90. Large flat grass field, picnic areas, easy trails. Great place to start hiking season or get the family started.

Nice leisurely hike. Little muddy from previous day rains. Very busy trail head. Very small parking lot with pit toilets. Many people.parked on side of road and walked in. Went on father's day. Very crowded and had to wait on the trail due to crowds. Dogs allowed so many on the trail. Easy walk. Some switchbacks to climb, but very comfortable walk. Lots of young kids on the trail. Well worth the stop to see the falls. Trail is Roundtree 3.1 by trail app.
