Hiking Wallace Falls State Park on the Western outskirts of the Cascade mountains. Located not too far from Seattle and not known as an intense hike, coming in at roughly six miles round trip and a 1,300 elevation gain, the Wallace Falls trail is perfect hikers of all levels with a morning or an afternoon to kill. As popular as this hike is, I managed to avoid it during the summer while heading deeper into the Cascades, but with an unusually beautiful day in December, I decided to embark up the Wallace Falls trail to take in the views of the Lower, Middle and Upper falls. A beautiful trail it is, with many observation posts looking out over the Olympic Skyline and Skynomish River Valley. Trail was very dog heavy - lots and lots of dogs. Mostly cute. Enjoy the sound of the rushing water, heard for just about the duration of the hike!!! Like, comment, and subscribe below!!! Subscribe to the channel!!

The falls are absolutely amazing! This has been one of our favorite hikes so far this year.! If you go in winter make sure you prepare properly we brought snacks and lots of water. The trails we chose were clearly labeled and they have mile markers along the route, along with trail maps every couple miles. If you have a chance to get here we highly recommend you go. The trail is def. kid friendly for most the hike but I wouldn't advise bringing small children on account of the length. We will def. be coming back for an awesome summer hike! #washington #hike #PNW #trails #photography #videography #trees #winter #outdoors #landscapes #forest #viewpoint #pacificnorthwest #westcoast #sunshine #sun #fun #running #Walking #getoutside #adventure #adventurecalling #outdoorblog #mountains #nature #sky #keepitwild #wherewillwegonext #roamthewest #exploremore #swimming #lake #water #snow #scenery #scenic #terrain #waterfall #water #explore #PNW #views #videography #video #photo #photography #scenic #scenery #wilderness #gopro7 #hero7 #goproblack
This is a 5.5 mile hike. Located just outside the town of Gold Bar.Rated Easy to the lower falls and moderate to the upper falls due to length and elevation changes.
During my trip to Seattle, I hiked Wallace Falls in Wallace State Park on my first day. Beautiful area! Then on the second day, I did Mt Defiance (a 11-mile round trip) and also hiked to the nearby Island Lakes and halfway to Bandera Mountain, making it an epic 15-mile trip! Seattle is awesome!

A beautiful loop along the Campbell Creek Trail in Raven Rock State Park, NC. This 5 mile loop intimately follows Campbell Creek on its way to the Cape Fear River. You'll pass by multiple sand and pebble beaches along with small bedrock rapids and bluffs. The primary destination of this loop is Lanier Falls, a powerful class II/III rapid in the Cape Fear River which is unusual this far east in North Carolina.

All the pictures I took on the GoPro and turned them into a quick slideshow to try out something different. Took a nice hike up to Wallace Falls. The Lou Dogg came along climbing steep steps and switchback trails. About 5.4 miles round trip with aprox 1400 feet of elevation gain. The falls were flowing pretty good especially with such a late Northwest winter. Had some lunch at the top and kept moving to avoid the mosquitos!!
