A dramatic series of waterfalls along the South Fork Snoqualmie River, a high bridge over an impressive gorge, and an observation deck aerie are the biggest draws for hiking the Twin Falls Trail. It’s a popular route, especially from the west trail head, but beginning from the east allows hikers to appreciate a short section of the old Milwaukee Railroad grade and views both up and down the Snoqualmie Valley. Though the trail is wide below the falls, there are no passing lanes. Solitude seekers are advised to begin at the east trail head, where few venture. Twin Falls is not the only allure to this trail. Anglers will find plenty of way-trails down to the river below the falls.
This unmaintained trail, recommended only for seasoned Grand Canyon hikers, is relentlessly steep, rocky, shadeless, and waterless until you reach the Colorado River. The tread is well worn and generally easy to follow, and the route offers access in one long day to one of the most scenic beach campsites in the canyon.
The narrow and rugged ridge of Cape Lookout stretches 1.8 miles into the Pacific Ocean. The top of the cape is mostly timbered but the sides are steep to vertical cliffs that drop hundreds of feet into the wild Pacific surf. Along the hike to the end of the cape, many viewpoints offer vistas of the ocean and its beaches. About 0.5 mile west of the trailhead, a short distance to the right (north) of the trail is the site of a 1943 plane crash
A nice day hike or easy overnighter, a beautiful mountain lake, and a good opportunity to see how a forest recovers from fire. The trail is in great shape all the way. It winds through a burned forest the entire distance except for the large meadow at the trailhead and a few small meadows on top of the ridge. Grizzly Lake is a beautiful mountain lake tucked between two forested ridges, but it has been in the path of several forest fires, most recently the fires of 1988.
