Snoqualmie Falls

Snoqualmie Falls is one of the most popular natural attractions in the state of Washington. This 270-foot waterfall is not only scenic, but also offers a range of hiking trails throughout the area and various viewing points. If you want to take your time savoring the scenery, make a reservation for a room at Snoqualmie Falls Lodge. Snoqualmie Falls is known for its crystal-clear water that plunges more than 27 stories. An entire day can easily be made out of visiting the falls, if you include some hiking and pack along a picnic lunch; the falls are located about an hour’s drive from Seattle, east of Issaquah and a short distance outside the Snoqualmie National Forest.
