Discover Pass is a must for Rattlesnake Mountain Trail Parking

All city of Snoqualmie parks and trails are open to the public and do not require a Washington State Discover Pass for parking or use. That includes Snoqualmie Point Park and its parking lot.

However, the upper parking lot adjacent to Snoqualmie Point Park requires a Discover Pass, because it is the trailhead for the Rattlesnake Mountain Trail, an 11-mile hike to Rattlesnake Lake. That land is owned by the Department of Natural Resources, not the city of Snoqualmie. Signs are posted in that area.

Other local trails that require a Discover Pass are Mount Si, Little Si, and Tiger Mountain.

Day passes or annual passes can be purchased on the Discover Pass website or at locations that sell state fishing and hunting licenses such as Ace Hardware in North Bend. Passes can also be purchased by phone at 866-320-9933.

The Snoqualmie parks and trails map is available on the city website or in a larger format that is easier to use. Pick one up at City Hall, the Snoqualmie Valley YMCA, the Snoqualmie Library, or the Visitor Information Center. You may also request a map by emailing
