These are beautiful falls, 268' tall, with nice viewing areas maintained by Puget Sound Energy. Just gazing, & listening to the water roar (even during relatively low-flow days like when we went) is pleasant. But there are great interpretive panels where you can learn about the geology of how the falls were created, the human / Native American history of the area, & the impressive engineering feat of harnessing the water for energy above the falls. There's a large parking lot on both sides of the highway, good bathrooms & a gift shop & small cafe right at the site. There's also the Salish Lodge at the top of the falls, obviously a high-end place with a nice dining room & gift shop. There's no charge to enjoy the falls, it's a beautiful area, & a nice chance to drive out of the big city for a breath of fresh air.
