“Amazing!”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

We went from Snoqualmie Falls to here, as we were in the area and wanted to see some more waterfalls. My aunt was told to go here and are we ever glad we did! It was a bit tricky to find, perhaps because we were looking for Twin Falls instead of Olallie State Park.
The hike through the forest is absolutely breathtaking--it's a temperate rainforest! The trees are HUGE! and being a rainforest, it is so green. the trees are growing moss, which in turn is growing ferns! and the trail is along the river, so there is a beautiful water soundtrack to match the scenery.
the path is well marked and gradually goes uphill. we were there on a Sunday, early afternoon, in July and it was busy. Great to see! Coming from Minnesota, i was so glad there weren't mosquitos everywhere as we hiked. we started out late morning, and sadly turned around before we made it to the falls, as we were all hungry. but even what we saw was fantastic!
there is a state park fee, so we paid $10 for a day pass, not having the yearly pass, but it was SO worth it!
one port-a-potty at the trailhead.

“Very nice easy hike to Twin Falls”
Reviewed 9 May 2012

This was my first hike of the season so I wanted something not too strenuous but with some nice payoff. Twin Falls fit the bill perfectly with a well maintained trail, lots of wild flowers, and some wonderful falls. Very little elevation change so it is accessible to pretty much any level of experience.

“Not bad - lush green and cool”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

Olallie State Park is at the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. It features Twin Falls, cliff formations, riverbanks and old trees up to 14 feet in diameter.
The hike is about 3 miles back and forth ~1.5h (conditional). We enjoyed the hike which at times had good acclivity. We hiked to see the water falls (~150ft). Site is good for all ages to enjoy or families can have a picnic.
Parking is free if you are willing to walk 100-150m else you pay for parking close to the park. Bathroom facilities at the entrance.
