Twin falls hike

Twin falls hike

This is an easy to moderate trail depending on how far you go and what path you take. I started at the west trailhead off I-90 at exit 34 just east of North Bend. Be aware that you need the Discover Pass to park here. It is mostly wooded so it is a good hike for a hot day. There are many opportunities in the beginning to go down to the South Fork River. You will come across a junction where a right turn will lead you down to the rocks by the river where you can get a beautiful view of the falls. Turning left will put you on a trail that leads to a bridge above the falls. If you continue on for almost a mile more, you will have a moderately difficult hike which leads up to a gravel road. It is a nice hike but the scenery at the top is not too impressive. I did this hike with a baby on my back in a hiking pack and found it to be somewhat tiring but not too hard.
