The Best Waterfalls near North Bend

Snoqualmie Falls

This is a great sight to see that does not require that much time to see in nearby Snoqualmie. You can either park and walk straight up to the falls or take a half-mile hike down to the lower viewpoint. I’d definitely recommend taking the hike down since the view is that much more stunning! You can also see the power plants that the falls generate power through on your hike down to the lower viewpoint.


Twin Falls

Twin Falls is a waterfall on the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River in the Olallie State Park. It features a well-hidden hydroelectric project that generates 24 megawatts of electricity. The powerhouse of the falls is located 325 feet below ground. It is a short hike to the Twin Falls and you can go down to the water when you arrive.


Franklin Falls

Franklin Falls is another waterfall on the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River. It is the first of three major waterfalls on the South Fork Snoqualmie River. It is located near the Snoqualmie Pass between the north and south lanes of i90. The falls are just east of exit 47. The hike to the falls is relatively short and the creek water is crystal clear.


Teneriffe Falls

Great hike to the Teneriffe Falls, but it is crowded on weekends. It is highly recommended to go early in the morning to avoid loads of hikers on the path. The waterfall is really magnificent at the top and it is a relatively quick trip. Remember to wear hiking shoes or boots since the trail is rocky at times.


Weeks Falls

Another waterfall on the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River, Weeks Falls is located just south of i90 at exit 38. The falls are at the end of the road that goes past the Olallie State Park headquarters for rangers. There is a 0.7 hike to the falls which is moderately easy and you’ll be able to see the falls quickly.


Keekwulee Falls

There is a 3.8 mile out and back trail the Keekwulee Falls and it is near Snoqualmie Pass. The trail is moderate and is used for hiking and running. Lots of rivers and waterfalls are visible on the hike to the main falls. It is highly suggested to walk up the riverbed if you are willing to do some easy rock climbing.


Coal Creek Falls


Palouse Falls

Palouse Falls is a delightful place to visit in Washington. When you see the falls, it will be like nothing else in the state. In the midst of the grassy plains is the river and waterfall. The scenery alone from i90 to the park is well worth the visit to the falls. The falls are worth the drive from North Bend in order to see its extravagance.


Myrtle Falls

With Mount Rainier in the background, the 72 foot Mytrle Falls are worthy of the trip. Expect to see multiple photographers out at the Myrtle Falls getting a picture of the falls. The setting of the falls is one of the most photographed area of Mount Rainier National Park. Myrtle Falls drops down a deep gorge carved out by Edith Creek on its journey to Paradise Valley.


Comet Falls

Comet Falls is one of the tallest waterfalls in Mount Rainier National Park. It was named Comet Falls since it resembles the tail of a comet For 1.8 miles, the trail leading to the falls climbs steadily uphill. It then switchback for 0.8 miles from there to the junction with Rampant Ridge Trail. Van Trump Park is to the right through the meadows until the trail ends in 0.5 miles.
