Fodor's Review

Spring and summer snowmelt turn the Snoqualmie River into a thundering torrent at Snoqualmie Falls. These sweeping cascades provided the backdrop for the Twin Peaks opening montage. The water pours over a 268-foot rock ledge (100 feet higher than Niagara Falls) to a 65-foot-deep pool. These cascades, considered sacred by the Native Americans, are Snoqualmie's biggest attraction. A privately owned 2-acre park with a gift shop and observation platform affords some of the best views of the falls and the surrounding area, as does the elegant Salish Lodge hotel. The 3-mile round-trip River Trail winds through trees and over open slopes to the base of the cascades.
