Wallace Falls State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Wallace Falls marks the entrance to the grand scenery of the Skykomish River Valley. The river is a popular whitewater run, and paddlers know the river as “The Sky.” Traveling eastward, every turn of the road reveals another character of The Sky’s beauty. As for the falls, within 0.5 mile the Wallace River drops 800 feet, creating nine distinct waterfalls.
Like Bridal Veil Falls, some 8 road miles farther upstream, the main cascade of Wallace Falls can be seen from the highway as it gushes, foams, and leaps 265 feet. Walking the trail to the falls takes your breath away—and it isn’t solely because it feels like you’re heading straight up. This popular trail can be full of people in summer and nearly devoid of hikers in winter—which is a shame, since winter rains make Wallace Falls truly impressive."
