The Wallace Falls State Park Management Area is a 4,735-acre camping park with shoreline on the Wallace River, Wallace Lake, Jay Lake, Shaw Lake and the Skykomish River. Located on the west side of the Cascade Mountains, the park features a 265-foot waterfall, old-growth coniferous forests, and fast- moving rivers and streams. Opportunities to view local wildlife, including cougar near Wallace Falls, and peregrine falcons inhabit the rock cliffs of the Index Town Wall

Two valley outlooks that are quite amazing! Great exercise going up and coming down!

Loved the views!

So pretty with all the snow

The middle is the best view but it is worth the hike to the top. Well made trail

Great hike. Beautiful and peaceful with the sound of the falls almost the whole way. Brought the dog with and he loved it.

Not my favorite though I'll admit waterfalls aren't my thing. Fairly standard PNW hike - the falls are impressive enough especially from the middle, but I just didn't find the rest of the trail and the crowds to be worth it.

Definitely well maintained and good for families with a bathroom in the beginning and good signage, parking lot, etc.

Easy access to parking and trail. Beautiful views of waterfalls, river, and mountains. There's a lot of up hill trail to get to the middle and upper falls but it's very doable even if you don't consider yourself "in shape." We did not do the part of the trail that leads to the lake but plan on going back and checking it out. There are some really cute cabins near the trails, you can rent them by the day/night if your looking to make a weekend of it.

I'm not beginner hiker. But I have to say it's toughest hike I've done. the trail is hard to find and follow. the last part of the trail is very steep. it took us more than 2 hours to reach the lake. Made it back to my car right before complete dark. me and my dogs are exhausted. we saw only one hiker on the logging road returning after failed attempt to find the trail.

Like others have mentioned, the trail is very well kept and in surprisingly good shape with all the rain. The hike itself progresses from easy to challenging as you pass the lower falls and make your way up.
