  • Great hike. Get there early or else its kind of a cattle drive being stuck with the masses as they pour through disrespecting the trail. We got there at 8 am and finished by noon. Mind you we are not hikers by any means but we made it to the tip top so if I can do it then so can you. This trail offers beautiful views and even more beautiful serenity.
  • We headed east last Saturday to do as much hiking as our 3 and 4 year olds would allow. The park here is well kept and of a fairly easy difficulty. The park has two trails. With young kids I recommend the trail to the left when you get to the fork. This hike has great scenery and is fairly close to civilization. Backpack camping is allowed in certain areas with a permit. Lastly don't forget your discover pass otherwise your going to need to purchase a day pass in the parking lot.
  • Very clean park. Beautiful hike with varying intensity. We stayed in the cabins which were very cost effective and relaxing. A new favorite place.
  • Absolutely amazing experience. We took four of our adult kids and arrived probably just after 3 pm. The parking was great, but it was a Monday afternoon so perhaps we missed the crowds. There are great bathrooms in the parking lot, potable water for a canteen or bottle refill, and easy to read trail maps at the trail head. We had planned to hike to the top of the highest falls, but my husband and I are not in the best of shape and the hike took longer than we expected. The map said it was roughly 2.5 miles, but much of it is rated medium difficulty. We didn't have a great deal of trouble with the trails, somewhat out of breath at times, but that was from trying to keep up with a bunch of 20 year olds. The scenery was astounding. Gorgeous trees, both standing and fallen. Moss everywhere, rolling hills, wooden foot bridges, wildlife (we even saw deer), and a beautiful river. And, of course... the falls themselves. The lower falls have a shelter and table right next to them where you can stop and picnic, with great views for photography. The next set of falls didn't have the sitting area, but there is ample views to knock your socks off. I will have to post more about the upper falls when I am able to get to those, we had to turn around and head back down as it was getting dark. If you go: wear good shoes, pack water and snacks if your need them and be prepared to pack all your trash back out as there are no trashcans along the way. Bring a camera for sure, you'll cry if you don't. :)
  • Gotta love the steep climb at wallace falls great for the spring summer and late fall hikes moderate climb but willing to climb up for a few miles
