Hike and Swim Twin Falls
Washington › Twin Falls Trail
Added by Kurtis Evans
- Head out on this quick 3-mile round-trip trail to take in this 70ft waterfall
- Give the legs a little workout with the 500ft elevation gain
- Get there early on the weekends to get a parking spot close to the trailhead
- Duration: 2 hours
For a portion of this 3-mile hike, you'll trek next to the South Fork Snoqualmie River, so take in the peaceful sound of the river running. Along the trail runs a river, where massive boulders create wading pools of icy water for warm summer days. At 1.5 miles, you'll reach a viewpoint bridge, which provides you with a great view of both the upper and lower falls.
This is a great trail to hike rain or shine!
This has been washed out, so be sure to check here for the latest conditions. As of now, you can access the east end of Twin Falls trail from the Homestead Valley Trailhead.

Short And Chill
This is a great little hike if you are looking to get away from civilization without any effort. Just outside of north bend is this little sanctuary that if you want to hike with your girlfriend or take you children on this one is perfect. You won't need anything since its not strenuous or long maybe a water bottle, but don't bring a backpack unless you intend to bring snacks, a camera, or journals then lose the dead weight and relax and enjoy this short hike. At one point you reach some steps that go down to the right and this will be a quick short stop at a observation post. After that it leads to a bridge and some other views of the upper falls. The best part of this hike is to relax and take a break at the different parts throughout it. Enjoy the beauty of nature!
If you start at the Twin Falls trailhead, the trail to the falls is closed due to a landslide but I went through anyway. As long as you're careful when walking by the affected area, which is small, you'll be safe all the way to the falls.
