Franklin Falls/Denny Creek

I was thinking of doing both Franklin Falls and Denny Creek for this snowshoe.

Location:

Franklin Falls (#1036) / Denny Creek (#1014)                     

Snoqualmie Pass                                                               

Mt. Baker-snoqualmie National Forest

Snoqualmie Ranger District (425)[masked]

Statistics:

Franklin Falls                      Denny Creek

Roundtrip: 2 miles                      Roundtrip: 4     

Elevation Gain: 400ft                  Elevation Gain: 700ft.

Highest Point: 2600ft                   Highest Point: 3000ft.

Features:

Rivers ,  Old growth, Waterfalls (frozen?)

Green Trails Snoqualmie Pass No. 207

NORTHWEST FOREST PASS REQUIRED

Don't forget to rent snowshoes if you do not own a pair.

I have a pair someone can borrow, but no extra poles.

Please don't forget gas money for drivers!

Driving Directions:

East on I-90 to exit 47 (Asahel Curtis/Denny Creek). Turn left over the overpass and proceed to a T. Turn right and travel 0.25 mile to Denny Creek Road (Forest Road 58). Turn left and drive 2.5 miles, turning left on the paved road just after the Denny Creek Campground. The trailhead is at the road's end.  Franklin Falls is just past the Denny Creek campgrounds on Forest Road 5830- I read the hike report from Jan. 26th that suggested parking before the first bridge on Denny Creek Road.


Please read our new guidelines for participation (found on the discussion board). Then RSVP 'yes'  and acknowledge that you have read these guidelines and will abide by them. Thanks.

    Hey Bonnie! the road is really nice & clear before the bridge but after that 4-wheel drive/high clearance is needed to get to the campground to park. Great trip plan, may you enjoy! :)

    I signed up to carpool - but I'm coming from Auburn. Is there a chance that I could meet you at a Park & Ride off Hwy 167 (or I5 if you're going thta way). The P&Rs are just off the highways.
    Thanks.

    Who is willing to drive? I know Casey is driving and I can drive. Looks like we need one more driver w/ chains to drive. I believe we have enough passes. Also, looks like there are a few of you coming from/near the Olympia/Lacy area (Lucia, Azar, and Bill) maybe you guys can carpool to the South Hill P-n-R? Thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
