Franklin Falls is a waterfall on the South fork of the Snoqualmie River, the first of three major waterfalls on the South Fork Snoqualmie River. The falls are located near Snoqualmie Pass in King County, Washington, United States, between the north and south lanes of Interstate 90, just east of exit 47. The falls actually consist of three tiers, totaling about 135 feet (41 m). The first drop is a very scenic 15-foot (4.6 m) block-shaped fall. The second drop is a 25-foot (7.6 m) fanning cascade. The final drop begins as a 25-foot slide, which bends to the right, then plunges over the final 70-foot (21 m) drop seen from the base of the falls. The falls are popular canyoneering destination. The upper two drops are north of the freeway.

  • This was a very nice, easy going trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end to cool off at and take some great photos! Trail was also very well kept.

  • I was 8 months pregnant and able to do this hike. It was beautiful and easy. I suggest to everyone.
  • Very easy hike with a impeccably maintained trail. A bunch of small kids had no issues doing the hike. Ends with a scenic waterfall.
