TRAIL DESCRIPTION

Just outside the Seattle area lies this wonderful state park called Wallace Falls. This trail is on the western edge of the Cascade Mountain range and offers you a wonderful glimpse of northwestern hiking. Trees are filled with moss and greenery surrounds you everywhere. The trail hikes upwards giving you glimpses of several waterfalls along the way, complete with viewing decks and rest areas. This is a popular trail, but I found it to have many sections of peaceful quiet along the way.
