    I took my nephews to Wallace Falls and even though it is a steep little hike up to the falls they had no problem. The elevation gain is 1200 ft in a short distance, so I was impressed with their enthusiasm. We were shaded by tree canopy which was nice in the heat. The waterfalls (especially the middle falls) and canyon views were lovely.

    Beautiful hike! The elevation gain in some places was a little steep, but still worth it for the great views. There are plenty of spots to take a breather or have a snack. The middle falls have the best views, and the trek between middle and upper is pretty short but more strenuous. Get there early and enjoy the loveliness before the rest of the world arrives!

    This is a popular and heavily travelled trail to a series of waterfalls, which attracts lots of hikers, familles and their pets. There are several viewpoints along the way as well as picnic tables and shelters. Enjoyable, but be prepared for lots of company.

    Awesome water falls and well maintenanced trails. Go on a somewhat cloudy day if you want to take pics.

    I hiked this trail with my family and a couple of dogs. It was beautiful all along the way.

    Great trail, really well maintained. Extremely busy however so if you are looking for any kind of solitude this is not your trail.

    Sports some great views of Wallace Falls in several view points.

    Really would like to also check out Wallace Lake and make a full loop.

    Hike out to Barclay was nice and easy, after reading both the description of this trail on trails.com and the WTA site I didn't expect finding the trailhead to eagle or stone lake to be hard... My friend and I searched a good 20 minutes around the area where the trail abruptly ended and had no such luck. Once we reached the lake we continued along the path for a good 15 minutes until the path clearly ended. Wish we had found the rest of the hike!
