Twin Falls - day hike

Saturday will probably be gray and showery. So, let's skip the vistas, and we'll look at some waterfalls instead. This hike will not be cancelled due to rain (the only exception is if conditions are dangerous, such as lightning).

Twin Falls is in Ollalie State Park just outside of North Bend. This is a short, easy hike, which will be snow-free.


Note that I am asking you to pay your driver only $5.00, since it is not very far from the P&R to the trailhead. If you are getting a ride from Tacoma, please give your driver some extra gas money.

Stats:

• Round trip: 3.0 miles

• Elevation Gain: 500 ft.

• Max elevation: 1000 ft.

• WTA link

• Parking pass: None

• Chuck's cell: [masked] 

Grumble! This new Meetup format forces me to use double-spacing and other ugliness. I used to be able to edit the HTML directly so that I could format the text the way I wanted it. Sigh!

    The weather cooperated. The falls were robust and beautiful as usual, I've done this hike several times but continue to enjoy it. The company was great. Thanks Chuck for leading this hike. I look forward to hiking with you guys again real soon. PS the pace was perfect.

    Hey-I want to come but I would be coming from the coast. I was wondering if I could meet up with anybody in Olympia or Tacoma and carpool to Bellevue?

      Hi Sara-I just saw these messages. It is ok, I couldn't make the hike today either. We will have to keep carpooling in mind for next time. Thank you. Peace.

    Hi Chuck, I was on waiting list but did not get notice until 8am this am about getting the invite. I live in Tacoma and would not be able to make it in time for agreed meeting time and did not want to hold everyone up. If you sponsor this hike again, I would love to come.

      No problem. I do understand about suddenly getting off the waitlist. We'll see you on the trail another time.

    I just noticed that the State Parks have no fees today to celebrate Veteran's Day, so NO DISCOVER PASS needed!

    Hi gang, think I'm going to have to lay low tomorrow; waiting for my shoulder injection to kick in. If things change I may head out to the trail.

    Hi Chuck, what time do you think you will be at the trailhead? Maryjane, Kelly and I are carpooling from Lakewood and it's more direct for us to meet at the trail than in Bellevue.

    What is your group pace? I am a slow hiker. But this doesn't sound too demanding.

    November 6, 2013

    • Chuck M.

      Not to worry. We don't go at a fast pace.
