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.
Wallace Falls State Park is a very popular hiking destination, however, if you can go on a weekday instead of a weekend you will avoid the crowds. At a short 5.5 miles out and back with just 1,300 feet of elevation gain, this is a fairly easy hike. Most of the elevation gain comes after you reach the lower falls. The path between the middle falls and the upper falls is the most steep section of the hike.

May 20, 2012. Trailhead is on the Mountain Loop Highway in eastern Snohomish County, Washington. Hiking on a typical Cascadian spring day down the old road and railbed along the South Fork Sauk River to the historic ghost town of Monte Cristo. It's roughly 4 miles in with mild elevation gains. For those who care this area is a Superfund site for cleanup due to heavy metals in the water, a legacy of the mining era. http://www.epa.gov/compliance/resources/cases/cleanup/cercla/asarco/docs/misc-fed-state-sa-09.pdf
