Franklin Falls Snow Hike

2 Miles Total - 400 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Sarina Clark

Awesome snow hike less than an hour from Seattle with a frozen waterfall.

You have to park about .5 a mile from the actual trailhead on Denny Creek road as they don't plow all the way to the trailhead. Get here early as this trail acquires quite the crowd. Bring microspikes as the trail is an ice rink. It's a quick hike up to the falls, stay and enjoy the view and make sure to not miss the cute red cabin on the way!
