Snoqualmie Pass Things to Do

  • Roaring Creek Falls

    These Falls are a little bit secluded but at the same time not at all. A private Residence adorns the hillside just above the falls it seeme to be inhabited in the ski season only though. A short trail leads you from the parking area to the base of the falls. It is somewhat steep and the falls turn up a decent amount of spray.The Falls themselves...

  • Franklin Falls

    Franklin Falls is by no means one of the tallest waterfalls I’ve come across. At 70 feet (21 m) tall the waterfall is no little drop though. It sits in a canyon directly in between the east and westbound lanes of I-90 near Snoqualmie Pass. The surreal experience of standing just beneath one of the nation’s most important freeways and staring at a...

The ice forms inverted icicles which face the...

    Lake Laura is a small lake in comparison to Lake Lillian. It is no nearly as deep either. Lake Laura takes on a horseshoe shape as it travels around a large island at it's center. I took a small inflatable raft on my second hike to the area and climbed up to the top of the island for great views of Lillian Falls. Without that transport device i...

It also as its name suggests, stays frozen very late into the year. In all it is about 4 miles one way with an elevation gain of about 1700 feet (518 m).There are also several waterfalls...

  • Lake Lillian Hike (Rocky Run Falls)

    Rocky Run Falls is about 150 feet (45 m) and is very interesting in its path. The first tier is a veiling wall that flows over a platform then the rest of the falls seems to be a long rock to rock skipping down the hillside.The falls can be seen from the approaching forest road as a white streak down the hillside. They are are noisy and can't be...
