Hiked with my two small dogs on a Friday. I met only one person on the greg ball trail and 6 persons around the lake.
Made it all the way to the upper falls and it was gorgeous!!
great exercise and awesome views!
Officially the first hike I do every year. Got a late start and didn't get to the trailhead until 10 which equaled a full parking lot. There's a property 1 mile back down the road that will charge you $10 to park there. Nice bonus if you want a little warmup before you head up. Consistently solid trek and you're only sun-exposed for the 2 miles from upper falls to the lake on the fire road, so easily bearable on a hot day.
Great hike except for the crushed rock the last .5 mile to the lake.
Great place to camp. Found some pretty cool waterfalls while hiking around the Wallace Lake area.
