North Bend


Snoqualmie / North Bend is approximately 30 miles east of Seattle - half way between Seattle and Snoqualmie Pass. Located in the heart of the Mountains to Sound Greenway, the cities are famous for the spectacular Snoqualmie Falls, a world renowned waterfall that cascades 268 feet over granite cliffs, and Mt. Si, a 4,200 foot mountain that overlooks both cities.

Visitors enjoy the Historic District, the Northwest Railway Museum, unique shops, and more than 50 restaurants for all tastes.

Recreation is abundant. There are more than 40 miles of walking, hiking, and biking trails with connections to regional trails; 40 city parks, including an off-leash dog park; 460 acres of open space at Meadowbrook Farm; fishing; kayaking; and even rally cars!
