Itinerary

HideShow
  1. Start off with breakfast at The Roadhouse Restaurant and Inn. The exterior of the Roadhouse is evident in the scene where Donna Hayward sneaks off to a bar and sets off a brawl in season one.

  2. Next, head south on Highway 202 to Snoqualmie Falls and Salish Lodge & Spa. Enjoy the soul-changing, dramatic view of the waterfall that appears in the show’s opening credits.

     

    From time immemorial, the Snoqualmie Tribe has considered the Snoqualmie Falls sacred – its birthplace of creation. Mists from the thundering 268foot waterfall carry prayers to ancestors, and the Falls provide the gifts of food, water, life, health, and healing. Today, the Snoqualmie Tribe warmly welcomes all visitors to this sacred place to experience its power in their own way.  

     

    Parking:  the lot on the right side of Highway 202 requires a fee, while the larger lot on the left side of the Highway is free.

     

    Observe the the falls from a paved walkway that includes multiple viewpoints.  For some exercise and a different view, hike down a trail to to the river (1.4 miles round trip, 250′ of elevation change).

  3. After taking in the Falls, walk over to the Salish Lodge & Spa, AKA the Great Northern Hotel, which served as the home base for FBI agent Dale Cooper. Visit the gift shop or one of the Lodge’s dining spots for a meal or a drink with a view!

  4. Head back to your car and continue east on Highway 202 to historic Snoqualmie and visit the enormous, 12 foot in diameter Centennial Log, featured in the pilot episode.

  5. Next up is the Old Weyerhaeuser Mill, AKA Packard Sawmill/Twin Peaks Sheriff Office. The small office building served as the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Department office for exteriors (series) and interiors (pilot). It is currently the home of Dirtfish Rally School.

  6. Just down the road is the Reinig Bridge (AKA Ronette’s Bridge), a bridge that now carries the Snoqualmie Valley Trail across the river. In the Twin Peaks pilot, Ronette Pulaski, a classmate of Laura Palmer, is discovered wandering across this bridge after having been attacked. After checking out the bridge, take a few minutes to walk down the Trail and take in the beauty.

  7. Head to downtown North Bend next and stop in at Pioneer Coffee. Although not featured in the TV show, this coffee shop sells Twin Peaks art created by a local artist. To see the art you will have to visit the bathroom.

  8. End your tour with a famous piece of Cherry Pie from Twedes Café (AKA Double R Diner). The scenes for the diner were filmed at Twede’s Cafe, where Dale Cooper enjoyed the pie. After your treat, take in the beauty of the commanding Mt Si that towers over North Bend and gave the show its name.
