There are a lot of pretty waterfalls in the world and many more in the North-West USA. This seems to be particularly visited due to the Twin Peaks connection. And profiteering from tourists rife. The Falls lie at the north end of the town. There...More

This place is beautiful but if you are looking to play in the falls this is not the right place. There is a beach area at the bottom which is about a mile hike down that many little kids were playing in. If you like...More

While in Seattle you have to go to the falls that featured in Twin Peaks! Gorgeous place and a great little hike down to the river. It would be wonderful to see in winter or in flood!

A must for Twin Peaks fans, of course. But you don't have to be a fan to appreciate this natural wonder. It is easy to see why it was chosen as a backdrop for a dreamy and surrealistic tv show. The falls are hypnotic and...More

Water falls are always more spectacular after a lot of rain, but even after 50 days of virtually no rain, these falls were still definitely worth a visit. Be sure to take the walk right down to the river, rather than just looking at the...More

There is no fee in several of the parking areas. If you drive pass the falls, down the hill you will come to a large free parking space that has a trail that goes directly to the falls without having to hike down the trail.

You can definitely plan it by yourselves. A tour company isn't necessary, unless of course, you're using them for transportation to and from the Falls.
