We did this hike on 3/18/18 and loved it! No snow on the ground. Benches conveniently placed for resting. Most people gave up after the Lower Falls so the higher you go, the less people you see.

Such a beautiful hike! My friend and I love it!

Easy hike definitely not moderate. Only downside was it was not well marked but we didn't have too much issue navigating. Muddy. Pretty falls.

Beautiful hike. We can hear the pleasant sound of water falls all along the hike. You’ll see lower falls, middle falls, and upper falls. We went up to middle falls and Valley overlook. There’s also a bike path all the way to upper falls.

This hike wasn’t tough. It’s easy not moderate. Signage was really bad, went the wrong way twice. Nice stroll though. Wear boots...there is a good amount of mud and 2-3 washed out sections.

Quick and easy hike without hardly any elevation change. The falls at the end of this trail are pretty. It was moderately trafficked in the middle of the day. There are a couple spots where you need to cross the water, so be prepared for that.

So fun! And easy, great walk through the woods with abandoned cars along the way!

very easy hike with such a gorgeous waterfall at the end. definitely worth the free hours in and out. definitely must on spots close to the falls.

Didn’t know this consisted of several other trails which was nice but confusing since some trails aren’t marked on the map and caused us to go in circles LOL. But, was nice nonetheless.

It was an amazing hike with no snow until the DNR portion of the trail past Upper Falls.

Got to the parking lot around 2:00 pm and found a spot right in the main lot. Weather was gorgeous and the hike was amazing. We hiked all the way to the upper falls. No snow anywhere and not a ton of people since we went later in the afternoon. Hiking beside the river part way was refreshing and all views of the falls were breathtaking! Definitely will be going back.

Beautiful hike! We started at 12:30, and had to park a half mile away from the parking lot (that’s what we get for sleeping in). Unusually warm day for March, so there wasn’t any snow to be seen. Pretty packed trail and there were lots of families and dogs. Beautiful forested views, with sounds from the falls as the day’s ambient noise. Worth the view when you get to the upper falls, but the lower falls view was actually our favorite.

We did this hike in early February - the falls are amazing! Great viewpoints of the falls and nice walk through the forest

This hike was great if you want to be ensconced in the beautiful trees of the PNW. Beautiful, Easy trail with some descent signs so didn’t get lost. The trail is rated as moderate but I would say it is on the easier side. (And I am not an expert hiker) We did have to cross the creek on a log...probably the most difficult part, but you can just cross easily if you don’t mind getting a bit wet.

Beautiful views of the falls and valley! Slowly gains elevation at first and gets pretty steep quickly when you get past middle falls. Some snowy patches at the upper falls viewpoint but no traction needed.

Beautiful day hike walking on a rolling widened trail through the evergreen forest. The falls at the end were well worth the trip. Picturesque picnic spot at the falls as well.

Cute and fairly short trail near Seattle. Perfect on this cloudy Sunday afternoon.
Be aware of the creek to pass before the waterfall. Either you have to cross a log that’s slippery or to get your feet soaked in the water. It was difficult with three small dogs, but managed to do it.

Very good nature walk with the sounds of birds and a creek pretty much throughout the entire trail. There is a portion of the trail that smells like sewage but it was pretty brief. All in all it was a great hike.

It's the easiest to get to the falls if you stayed on the main path of what looks like an access road for the most part. Sections of the trail are washed, so bring some hiking shoes... the view of the falls was worth the mud patches.

Trail was confusing because it had two trails that led to the waterfall, trail was super muddy as well. Also didn’t have a designated path in the beginning so a little hard to find, other than that very beautiful scenes and waterfall!

on Wallace Falls Trail

Started with my buddy around 11:30 on President's Day, at which point the lot was about half full. Trail was decently busy to the upper falls, but it wasn't too bad. Halfway to the upper falls it started to get a little snow so we put on some microspikes, which helped a ton.

Once at the upper falls we took the trail to the lake, and although it had a decent amount of snow, there were trails forged by previous hikers that made it a lot easier to traverse. It was a beautiful clear day, and you could see the Olympics perfect from the top of the road. Once at the lake we decided not to hike to the other side (forgoing two extra miles) so we went straight back to the parking lot. Ending up being around 2,500 ft of elevation gain and 10.5 miles, I highly recommend doing the whole loop as you get away from some of the crowds and see some awesome views!

Gorgeous hike! Despite the fog we were still able to view the waterfall and Wallace lake via DNR road. A bit muddy -- don't bring your favorite clothes!

Easy and beautiful

Great trail, however it is very easy to get lost so bring your phone! Will definitely do again.

Felt like I was in the movie 'Fern Gully,' totally mystical, lush, and beautiful.

Lots of mud. The log bridge was super slippery and the water was running deep enough it was over the top of my tall boot.

Great day to be out.

Fun trail with amazing views! A few steep spots going up and down that might be a bit difficult, but it’s definitely worth it

Very muddy this time of year. Also to me the trails were not marked very well. We could not find the 360 lookout on the pipeline trail. It was still a good walk in the woods. Beaver lake was very pretty just hard to get really close to.

It was really good, but be ready to get wet and moody.
