This Easy Fall Hike In Washington Is Only 2 Miles And You’ll Love Every Step You Take
While the days of fall are fleeting, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy our beautiful fall foliage here in Washington. And while you’ll find those rich vibrant hues all over the state at the moment, if you’re short on time, nothing beats the Franklin Falls Trail this time of year.
The walk to the waterfall may be a short one, but it's incredibly scenic.
The WTA does a fantastic job of maintaining the trail, so all you'll have to worry about are the views.
Located near Snoqualmie Pass, the Franklin Falls Trail is a nice 2-mile nature walk.
While it's long enough of a trek to offer some good exercise, it's also easy enough to attempt with little ones.
Franklin Falls is the first of three major waterfalls on the South Fork Snoqualmie River.
At 135 feet high, it's not Washington's highest waterfall, but it's certainly one of the most beautiful.
While the waterfall's flow is at its highest in the summertime, fall is still a fantastic time to visit.
The trail is open year-round, and it looks amazing covered in snow.
Sine this trail is so scenic and accessible, it does get crowded. Start your hike early in the morning if you're hoping for solitude.
The trailhead has a parking lot, but it does fill up quickly, so plan on finishing your adventure before lunch.
Fall is such a stunning season. Check out these
