Description

Known for its lakes and waterfalls, Wallace Falls State Park is a hiker’s utopia. This park features miles of trails with some leading towards Wallace Falls, which showcase three tiers of water rushing down timber and rock. Hike alongside the shoreline of Wallace River to see the beauty of the waterfall at its lower, middle, and upper viewpoints. Wallace State Park also provides scenic views of Jay, Wallace, and Shaw Lake. Want to make your trip longer? Stay in one of the first-come first-serve tent sites or rent one of the parks cabins.
