The hiking trails in the Pacific Northwest are some of the most coveted in the world, and Franklin Falls near Snoqualmie Pass far exceeded all my expectations!
Our friend had been telling us about the Franklin Falls hike for a long time and when we finally had the chance to get there we didn’t want to leave — if you are anywhere near the Seattle area, you should definitely check it out. It’s a really special place. The boys enjoyed traversing over big boulders and getting their feet (and shoes) wet in the river. But don’t worry if you have smaller children – the trail itself doesn’t require these feats of bravery! The trail is the perfect distance for kids and other than a bit of a tricky climb if you want to go down into the falls, it’s a very easy trek. If you are up for a little extra challenge, the hike down to the falls is worth the effort. We had fun splashing around in the water and getting close to the falls.
The water is cold, so be warned!
We had so much fun on our hike at Franklin Falls!
I still can’t believe we live just half an hour away from this kind of beauty. I pinch myself every day. If it would have been up to me we would not be living here at all — I’m so so thankful that God knew best and brought us back home.
