Franklin Falls is the first of three major waterfalls on the South Fork Snoqualmie River. The falls have the unique characteristic of being situated between the lanes of Interstate 90. Commonly cited as dropping 70 feet, the falls actually consist of three tiers, totaling about 135 feet. The first drop is a very scenic 15 foot block-shaped fall, not unlike Oregon
Nellie Falls is the major waterfall of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River. Located near the Dutch Miller Gap trailhead, the falls occur where the river drops over a headwall in the valley, and thunders down a series of steep cascades. Even when the river is at it's lowest volume late in the summer, these falls are still very impressive. During the peak of spring melt, however, this waterfall becomes a massive sheet of violent whitewater, sending spray high into the air.
Snoqualmie Falls is one of Washington state's most popular scenic attractions. More than 1.5 million visitors come to the Falls every year. At the Falls, you will find a two-acre park, hiking trail, observation deck, gift shop, and the famous 270 foot waterfall.
