12 Best Waterfalls In Washington State
1. The Snoqualmie Falls, Snoqualmie
Snoqualmie Falls is possibly the most famous waterfall in Washington state. East of Seattle, this 268-foot waterfall is perhaps best known for its inclusion in the opening credits of the 1990 TV show Twin Peaks. It is also known as a special meeting place for native groups.
Get a better understanding of the significance of the falls at the nearby lodge. Get a closer look and learn more by hiking the interpretive trail. Located right below the falls, it’s less than one mile in length. The best time to visit is during the spring when Snoqualmie has its biggest snowmelt and flow.
