  • The hike starts with a well groomed trail and then moves to "off road" with rocks, roots and switchbacks. Can be very challenging however is inspiring. It was wonderful to have a bit of rain, hearing ...  read more »
  • This is one beautiful hike through and through. Falls are in three steps, Lower, middle and Upper. One way distance to Lower falls is 1.8, Middle is 2.1 and upper is 2.75 miles. We were short on time ...  read more »
  • We hiked up the Wallace State Falls. It was very impressive. The hike itself was pretty gentle at first, but then did get a bit steep. Make sure you have decent hiking shoes! Take plenty of water and ...  read more »
  • Wallace Falls is a hidden gem in Washington. Three waterfalls that are all beautiful. The lowest waterfall is easy to get to for even the youngest hikers. The upper falls require a little more time and stamina, but are still relatively easy to get to. For the adventurous, continue beyond the upper falls to Wallace lake. If you head to Wallace Lake, make sure they're not timbering on the land North of the falls first (it's closed to hikers when they're timbering for safety reasons).
  • One of my favorite hikes since moving to Seattle in February. I went all the way to the top and saw some amazing views. About an hour drive from Queen Anne but I promise you will not be disappointed!
  • Love this state park with the water and the trails. Can be super crowded on the weekends especially on a nice weather day. They have put place no parking signs along the road now leading to the park, so when it is crowded there will not be any place to park.
  • Just did this hike yesterday, I had a real good time. Parking is a pain if you want something close, we got lucky got front row. The views are nice, they do have tables and sit down spots through out, but it's sparse one you leave middle falls and hike to the upper part. I didn't see any wild life, except slugs lol. The hike is pretty easy in the begining, but once you start going up, the inclines can be challenging at times. The trail is pretty busy with lots of people. I definitely would go back.
  • Beautiful hike. A lot of switchbacks. Follow the river and there'll be a few places you can jump in. A couple falls on the way. The whole hike is actually a little work but well worth it.
