Franklin Falls, Seattle Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great water falls, you can walk right up to it. Can be very crowded on weekends when the weather is nice. Can be slick and a little dangerous on the last climb down to the water fall basin, but we'll worth the effort. Parking lot fills up fast and a north west forest pass or $5 daily fee is required to park.

  • The Short trail leads to a mesmerizing cascading waterfall. It is definitely worth visiting over a weekend. It doesn't take too much time but it will most definitely give you memories worth cherishing.

  • A small hiking trail of only 0.9 miles each way, these falls are the easiest to get to. The walk along the Snoqualmie woods to reach the destination is soothing and pleasing. There are plenty of spots where you can take a break to appreciate the canvas that nature uses to paint such magnificent pictures that human hand cannot replicated even after over 5000 years of civilization... Bow to Mother Nature... Refreshing.

  • Easy hike. Gorgeous waterfalls at the end.

  • Nice place to visit to see water fall up close
