I've been to Snoqualmie 2-3 times in the last couple of years and every time I remember it being somewhat busy. The last time my family and I went, it was in the Fall but there was still a crowd. I think i prefer my hiking to be serene and quiet so I can take in the beauty. Oh well.
The hike down from the parking area (after crossing the bridge over the highway) is easy. I think you can drive down to the bottom of the hill, but don't quote me. I think I saw some elderly people cheat and had their car waiting for them at the bottom (the half-way point). Once you pass this area you know the falls are just around the corner. The beauty and power of the crashing water is amazing and gets you pumped up for the hike back up to your car again. I dont know, but I about had an asthma attack trying to make it up the hill!! My legs were shaking by the time we made it to the gift shop.
Overall, this is a good hike, but beware of the crowds...
