Hiking at Snoqualmie Falls Forest Theater

Get Access to Private Hiking Trails at Snoqualmie Falls

Several trails wind through the park providing access to the river, viewpoints and Snoqualmie Falls.

Lower Falls Trail

The Lower falls Trail ends at the base of Snoqualmie Falls. Along the way you will cross O creek and travel through beautiful second growth forest. Lower Falls Trail starts at the hairpin turn. From there it heads down into the forest of big trees and lush ferns.  Cross O Creek and head up toward the falls viewpoint. The easy trail ends at the falls viewpoint. From there its a steep challenging 100 yards down to the river and falls. 

Viewpoint Trail

The Viewpoint Trail is a short uphill walk with benches and a distant view of the falls. Only got ten minutes? Then this is the trail for you. Trail stars from the Campground or behind the Shelter and ends in a relaxing spot with benches. See photo of view. 

Theatre Trail

Trail to the Theatre starts from the shelter and parking area and switchbacks a short distance down to the Theatre. Easy walking but possibly too steep for the disabled. On show afternoons we provide shuttle service for those unable to walk down (or up) to the theater trail. We use private vehicles provided by volunteers from the BBQ pavilion to the theater and vice versa. The first two rows in the amphitheater are reserved for the mobility impaired. 

Lower Meadow Trail

Easy walk down to the Lower Meadow and the Snoqualmie River. There are benches, stellar views, fishing and river access. 

King County Trail

King County maintains a paved trail just south of the SFFT property. Access is from the West end of our property. This paved trail follows the old railroad and is an easy ride Southeast which ends at Puget Sound Energy’s fence discouraging access to the decommissioned trestle to the City of Snoqualmie. 

Upper Falls Trail 

Muddy, slippery, wet and with plenty of stinging nettles. Upper trail is not recommended for the inexperienced hikers not tennis shoes. Mud boots required most of the year.
