Relatively short easy hike. I went while it was raining so going up in the beginning can be muddy and slippery so be careful. Views were incredible from the lookout even on a semi foggy day.

Sheltered forest hike on a well maintained trail. Beautiful view on the lookout.

Gorgeous Seattle woods. Easy trail, lovely waterfall

Excellent trail! We were able to hike this after leaving Mount Baker on our way back to the Seattle airport. Rained all day in Bellingham Sunday so we needed one more hike before hearing back to hot, humid Atlanta !

Great hike nice and easy!

we went during the week in the evening so it wasnt very busy, only saw 2 other couples. there was so many amazing views along the way! the falls were absolutely breathtaking! we just went to the 2nd level since we ran out of daylight but definitely want to go back! id say moderate is fitting for this one:)

we had fun! actually took my cat lol. falls were beauitful, we went to the top of the first falls, it was a short hike but thats the only part id considerate moderate, pretty much flat to the bottom of the waterfall. cave was beautiful!

great hike for the family and dogs

Fun short hike! Brought my puppy to explore the outdoors and socialize him with kids! It was good to see so many kids out with parents!

Found this hike on accident. I went on a Tuesday so there was no body the whole time! the lake was beautiful and the trail was very easy to stay on!

Hiked on 9/10/18.

I'm sure it's typically busy, but I went on a Thursday morning and basically had the whole trail to myself. Multiple view points along the way and they're all beautiful. The trail is extremely well maintained. I'll definitely be coming back here again.

Nice short hike. I was concerned it might be steep and hard work for my ten year old daughter who has not hiked much, but she handled without any difficulties. We ate lunch at a little picnic table below the tower and enjoyed taking in the views. The trail was well maintained and definitely seemed to be a nice place for people with dogs.

9/4/2018 (Tuesday) - Everything is good on this trail from trailhead with sufficient parking places to trail top with good view, facing Bridal Veil Falls.

Short, easy hike with beautiful views the entire way. the only downside was the crowds of people but it was worth it to see the waterfall.

Hiked on 8/5/2018

This is a great place to break in your trekking poles. I walk a but faster than most but I'll be the first to admit that the elevation gain on this hike is a workout for newbies.

You have three lookout points on your hike: Lower; Mid: and Upper falls. Bring some extra water if you don't carry a pack. Watch out for loose rocks on the trails.

This is a popular location so arrive early.

A easy one but, get early, after 9 or 10am is heavy traffic. Is beatiful and couple really nice spots!

Beautiful falls, easy hike but enough so you feel the work a little. Lovely day

This was a very easy hike, parking was easy to find and the waterfall was gorgeous during the summer. I’d recommend going during the week when it is less crowded. Regardless, it was a great experience!

Been there on 2018/06/30 Saturday. Very easy river side walk. Has Parking lot. I was there at around 7:30, I was the first one in the parking lot. Beautiful falls and access to all the way to the waterfalls. Camping available near by. Best hike for kids and people new to hiking. This wont burn calories much. It is more of leisure walk than hike . I would go there again but as leisure activity than hiking.

Hiked on Labor Day Weekend Sunday 2018/09/02. Enjoyed the hike. Pretty good work out. Descent Water Falls View. Trail path is neat and well marked. Has parking lot. Requires Discovery pass. It took 1 hour 40 minutes to Lower falls and come back. Missed going to Middle Falls and Upper Falls because of time constraints. I would definitely go there again.

Great view of at Middle Falls.
Busy place:(

Great trail for children. We arrived at 8:30 am and only encountered 4 other couples. When we left around 10:20 there were cars parked all of the way to the camping area.

I really enjoyed this trail. it is definitely kid friendly but keep a hold to them when you're on the dry river bed. some dog crap on the trail, that was disappointing. trail is well kept and not much for garbage. parking is okay but not large and you do not need a pass or pay. All and all it was a nice peaceful walk.

Nice trail and lovely fall. Got stung by a bee for the first time. Also great trail to get to Wallace Lake.

This was absolutely a gem. The waterfall is just beyond beautiful, and there is a total of 3 stops on the hike. Lower, middle, and upper falls. Lower falls is an easy hike and probably the most beautiful part of it all. There is a tiny trail down to the pools of the lower falls, it is not recommended to go off trail. But I think it’s well worth it if you are safe. It is very slippery and people have passed there. Just be carful and only do it if your comfortable. Middle Falls is a medium hike, pretty steep but can be done and only 0.3 miles from lower. Highly recommend at least tracking to middle. We didn’t get the chance to hike to upper falls, as we had to get back to Seattle for a meeting.

I've hiked Wallace Falls four times now and on my last attempt I pushed on to the top. Wallace Falls can be tough since it is high elevation gain in such a short distance. I pushed on and explored Wallace Lake. You can go beyond that and hike up to Jay Lake and Shaw Lake as well. Wallace Falls is a great beginner hike. Once you discover your abilities you can move farther into the Cascades and hit peaks like Beckler Peak.

Beautiful scenery! An easy & fun hike to do!

Absolutely beautiful! Went there on a Friday and parking lot was very open around 9:30 am. Kid friendly.

my brother and I (both teenagers) did this on a Sat. morning. Not too hard and nice views of the falls and forest, but very crowded. We also continued up past the falls to Wallace Lake and then back down the Greg Ball trail, which I would recommend if you want to do a longer hike since there was little elevation gain after the top of the falls and the whole trail system is very well-marked and has signs at each intersection. Started ~9, finished our big loop ~1:30 with some breaks.
