Quote of the Month:

“It was November--the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds,

deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines." - L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

OVERVIEW

Snoqualmie Falls is one of the most visited and most popular attractions in Washington State. More than 1.5 million people every year come to enjoy the scenic views. Snoqualmie Falls is a 268 ft. waterfall on Snoqualmie River that is 100 ft. wide, and it cascades over granite cliffs. The fall is surrounded by a two-acre park with a wonderful observation deck. On the territory of the park, guests will also find a nice gift shop and the Salish Lodge.

It also served as a traditional burial site. Many legends and beliefs are associated with this water. These people believe that the mists rising from the base of the waterfall connect Heaven and Earth.

It should be said that the main views on the waterfall are opened from the side of the fall where a special fence protects the tourists. This is a nice place for a picnic with the family which gives you the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the falls.
The top of the waterfall is situated in less than 100 yards, from here, Snoqualmie Falls Trail descends 300 feet in 0.5 mile taking its’ visitors through green rain forest and cozy meadows, which attract hikers to step off the trail and enjoy the beauty of nature.
