parking wasn't bad. the trail was fairly easy at the beginning. starts to get a slight incline a bit later but overall was an easy and relaxing hike. The way back is worse though because its mostly up hill. Seeing the old kiln is cool and if you hike past that for a mile is the river which you can eventually go down to if you want. The path to the river is a bit narrow so be careful. I'd go again. I went during the week in the early afternoon.

I went at 10 am on a Friday morning and it was uncomfortably packed. There were at least two scout groups of about ten to fifteen kids, and two adult groups of about ten each later up the trail. Not to mention the numerous single and double hikers. Because of the crowds the hike became unbearably slow and wasn’t tranquil. I guess I am a bit of a curmudgeonly hiker.

Having said the above, Pros: pretty views, lovely foliage, usually nice weather during the summer. Cons: going very slowly due to getting stuck behind so many crowds, listening to lots of other people’s conversations, stopping often to let others pass the opposite direction, difficulty finding parking.

I will say that this is a great hike for children because it has a fun payout for not too much effort. Just be sure to use the bathroom before you get to the trailhead because the bathrooms there are so gross.

I hope you all have a better experience than I did. :-) Happy hiking!

Easy hike, tons of places to take the kids to play in the water. Awesome waterfall. Definitely a must see!

One of the best hikes I’ve been on!

Totally too easy of a “hike” but very beautiful with the river and falls!

Easy

Great adventure with the kids (7, 14, 16). 2 mile hike was fun going in. We enjoyed all the things people left to show us the way. Waterfall was amazing. We had fun splashing around the pool of water for a good hour before heading back. Beautiful! Enjoyed by all.

Great hike but the waterfall was dried up. We'll come back in the fall and hope to see it then. Lots of bugs, so bring insect repellant!

Very doable, very pretty views of the waterfalls!

Since today was a hot and hazy August day I thought the shade on the trail would be a nice way to stay cool.
Overall, the shady center of the trail was the best part in my opinion. The first part and final parts of the trail are a little steep. I feel like Little Si is more challenging than the views are worth. However it's very well maintained and traveled.

Climbed on a hot day and the shade in the fern forests was great. One of my favorite hikes in Washington.

The destination is the only good thing about this trail. But if it’s busy, it’s not going to be good. The swimming hole is very small with room for 4-6 people. So if you’re the only people there, awesome! Getting there.... you’re walking down a gravel road 90% of the time. I wouldn’t really call this a hike.

2 stars because of the hype, the parking situation and the crowds. I thought this would be much more beautiful than advertised. It's basically an urban flat trail through the woods with a smallish waterfall at the end. Parking is insane! So many people. We kept going to Denny Creek for a longer hike. It's probably a nice small hike for families with little kids, but watch out for them going off trail (this is easy to do) and getting into the poison ivy or the devil's club.

Great trail. Easy and flat in places, a lot of incline and terrain most places. Middle falls is best view of the falls. Just passed that is a great view of the valley.

The trail is clean and easy but people leave their trash there. There was a pile of trash by a tree. Diapers, cigaret butts and bags of dog poop everywhere. What is going on?

The views from the trail were gorgeous the river is stunning! Super busy but it didn’t take from the stunning view and experience down at the base of the falls. We took wagon road trail back and didn’t see a single soul; the forest hike was wonderful!!

Hiking, swimming, nature walking, cool park! Lots of trails but lots of hills.

Went on a very hot Monday afternoon so I was one of the only people on the trail. Certainly beautiful. The different viewpoints are good for families with different skill levels.

super easy hike with beautiful falls at the end, great on a hot day with kids.

We got to the parking lot at 7:30am and it was about halfway full. Bring bug spray! They immediately started biting at the start of the trail.

Easy hike that took us about 30 minutes to the Falls and 30 minutes back to the car. We decided not to cut to Wagon but we might consider it the next time we visit. Parking lot was 3/4’s of the way full by 8:30am.

Bathrooms at the start of the trail are little rough, so we decided to stop by at a nearby gas station afterwards.

Great kid trail. Get there before 9 am to get a parking spot in the lot, its a very popular trail. Easy hike until the the last 20 feet I could see the rocks being too slippery for some. Take the Wagon Road trail back to the parking lot for a less crowded trail.

Nice moderate trail. Pretty waterfalls. Went to Upper Falls via Woody Trail with Diane.

Easy and short hike. If you take West summit exit of I90, then the drive to this trailhead is blooming with wild flowers right now and has great scenic views. This was our 2nd time hiking this trail. We hiked once during winters when the road to trailhead was closed to vehicles, and hence the hike was much longer. But right now it is easy 2 miles roundtrip from the trailhead. There were trees providing shade throughout the trail, so no sun or heat. You can also hear water/ creek all through the hike and some break in trees to get sneak views of creek. The waterfall at the end is nice.

Great for kids, short and easy with a great view at the end!

Great trail for the family. Some small challenges but easy enough to get through without feeling completely drained. Still need to bring your water and a snack for the summit. Fantastic views!

I clocked this hike at 6.25 mi, the view at the top of the falls was really incredible and worth the pain! The inclines are no joke.

Beautiful hike but too much garbage once you get to the waterfall.

Beautiful woodsy and easy hike! I loved the river spot! Sometimes you just don't want to climb 3,000 feet!

If you like hiking with the rest of the state, difficulty finding parking and a less than mediocre view point of the waterfall, then Wallace falls is for you. I was highly disappointed by the trail and regret driving the 3 hours to hike it. Was more on the easy-moderate side, my 4 year old had no problem doing it.

Did this trail yesterday(07/22/2018), and it is an easy trail in good condition. The waterfall is great.
