Snoqualmie Falls

Snoqualmie Falls   

At 268 feet, this water fall is 100 feet higher than Niagara Falls.  This location has great  religious and historic significance for the Snoqualmie Tribe.

You can view this popular natural wonder from a viewing platform owned and operated by Puget Sound Energy.  Access is from State Route 202 one mile west of the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie.

This location has the world's oldest underground hydro electric generating station.  Now owned by Puget Sound Energy, this facility's original electric generators (alternators) are still in service.

Snoqualmie Falls

This plant is a National Civil Engineering Landmark and was carved into the bedrock beneath the falls in the late 1890's. The old buildings across the river are the elevator shaft, machine shop, and carpentry shop, all over 100 years old.  Please note that the south side of the river is closed to the public.


During winter storms, Snoqualmie Falls can increase in flow to over 36,000 cubic feet per second (CFS).
