Very popular trail. Parking lot was full and I had to hike an additional .5 mile to the trailhead. Very well defined trail. Not a place to go for soitude!
Love this trail. Yes it can get crowded in afternoon (go early if at all possible) BUT for lush scenery, rapids, and a magnificent waterfall, it is a terrific day hike. For more peple but does have some moderat sections as described in gen discrip.
Great hike with beautiful scenery. More challenging than I expected, but a great hike all the same. Well worth the effort to make it to the upper falls.
This is a perfect spring hike! It's a great warm up for the summer and the waterfalls are absolutely gorgeous. Only about 2.5 miles to get to the upper falls. The trail is also very well taken care of with sturdy bridges and benches along the way. Very popular hike so there will be lots of people there and lots of parking space. The only thing that wasn't great was the gigantic power lines that are constantly buzzing when you first park and have to walk under them for the beginning of the hike, but it's not to bad, they just made us walk quicker.
Wallace Falls is great for a last minute hike. It is less than an hour from Seattle and the views are always great. The trail is crowded in the summer and you have to get there early to get parking. there are certainly better hikes but this is a reliable hike.
