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

Awesome trail with 3 or 4 tiers of waterfalls. Really cool old growth forrest covered in moss, several little bridges to go on.
Start early this is a very busy hike! We went on sunday monrning, hit the trail right at 8am and had the whole thing to ourselces...on the way down it was super busy and not that enjoyable.
started hike at 8am, got to top around 10am, then roughly 2hrs down taking stops for photos and video.
Start early to get a parking spot, if you show up at 10 or 11 am on the weekend there will be NO spots and you have to circle the lot waiting for someone to leave.

It gets harder the further up you get

Awesome from start to finish. Each lookout is better than the last. Last quarter mile is most difficult as you ascend to the top of the falls. Make sure you have appropriate footwear if the conditions are wet.

Great hike and views. going to the waterfall was mostly uphill, but we'll worth the effort.
