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

Went here last Saturday. Reached late around 2.30 pm. Took about 3 hours to complete all three falls with regular stops. Was lightly trafficked. It started drizzling a bit later. Trail is really well maintained. The middle falls have the best view.

I only give it a 3 because of how heavily trafficked it can be. Parking is also frustrating due to that previous sentence. The hike alone though is beautiful! Falls are gorgeous. Not too exhausting. I've done it a few times.

It was a great hike, beautiful waterfalls! It was a good thing we went early because it got super busy. I would definitely do this again.

Hiked to Mid-Falls on 6/18. Arrived at the State Park around 10:15am and the parking lot was quite busy, but not full (I think this may be only because the weather was overcast and dreary). On the trail it didn't feel crowded at all - there would be stretches with no one around.

The trail itself was beautiful and well-maintained. Due to the weather it was a bit muddy, but that's what waterproof hiking boots are for! Hiking next to the river, trekking across numerous wooden bridges, and taking in the damp, rainforest-like environment made for a very exciting and enjoyable hike. I was pleasantly surprised.

To the reviews that express how easy this hike is - don't let that fool you! I found the hike to be slightly tougher than I originally anticipated (I think because I went in with the expectation that it'd be a breeze). It's not challenging by any means, but definitely a happy-medium. It took me a little over 1 hour to reach Mid-Falls and another 30 minutes to return to the parking lot.

Beautiful views and dog friendly with a leash. Lots of people on the trail so we had to park about half a mile away and walk to the trail.
