This small waterfall is situated immediately downstream of where Interstate 90 splits to opposite sides of the valley near Snoqualmie Pass. The South Fork of the Snoqualmie River plunges 22 feet into a small gorge and essentially slams into a wall which the river must circumvent by making a sharp horseshoe bend in the gorge. During low flow periods the falls will split into two segments. Should a safe method of crossing the river be found, an excellent view of the falls could be attained by climbing out on top of the "wall" that the river is so rudely interrupted by.
- Fall Into The Wall is the Adopted name of this waterfall.
This waterfall was named by kayakers for the fact that both the water, and any kayakers who attempt to go over the falls, almost slam head-on into a solid 30 foot tall cliff located directly in front of the falls. When you visit the falls, notice that the sharp bend around the protruding buttress is almost as noteworthy as the waterfall itself.
Drive east on I-90 to the Alpental exit at Snoqualmie Pass, about 4 miles east of the Denny Creek / Asahel Curtis exit. At the light, turn left and drive under I-90, then almost immediately, turn left again on a FR # 58, which parallels the South Fork all the way to Denny Creek (alternatively, you can drive east from Franklin Falls for another 1 1/2 miles to this site). Very soon after crossing under the westbound lanes of I-90, you'll see a stone wall on the river side of the road. Pull out here, and peer down into the gorge at the falls.
