We went today on a bright and sunny day, it was crowded and parking lot was full and people parked on road sides, luckily we got it in parking lot itself. We went to both lower and middle falls with my 6 years old kid, he was able to trek all the way on his own. It's 4.2 miles trekking to and fro for middle falls. You'll get the best view in the middle falls and along with that we enjoyed the awesome weather as well. Decent rest rooms and tables to have food as well. You need Discover park to park the vehicles, pets allowed as well.
Hiked Wallace Falls today and it was beautiful to say the least. The trail itself was well groomed. Granted, I went when the weather was dry and hot but come spring or fall, the trail could get slick given some of the steep terrain. Not an easy hike but not a killer hike either. The switchbacks are rough for sure but maybe not a good hike if you're a beginner or out of shape. Lots a great views along the Wallace and both the middle and upper falls have picturesque opportunities with either trail option. It's a popular hike and parking gets limited really quick so come early and beat the rush. Props to the park officials for keeping the trail clean.
This park offers several trails, but you're probably interested in the Woody Trail to Wallace Falls. You'll enter a dense forest, follow a scenic river, then climb up some hills and cross some bridges as you catch some amazing views of a series of waterfalls. Like most visitors, I hiked to the Middle Falls Overlook and head back, which is about a 5 mile trip. It's the most scenic of the vista points. The hike, the forest, and the falls were all amazing! The trail is only mildly steep for the most part and very well maintained - you don't have to be an expert to make it up. You'll have plenty of company though - this is a popular spot. You need a Discovery Pass to park, which you can buy in advance or on the machine at the lot. Parking is TOUGH! I barely snagged a spot since I got there in the late morning, even though it was a weekday. Overflow parking is quite a long walk away, so get here early and good luck on weekends.
We got here around 6:30 am. There were plenty of parking at that time. The hike was great about 5.6 miles round trip, not too hard also not too easy. It's doable unless you've never hiked or out of shape. You do need a Discover Pass. They do have an automated pay station if you forget to buy or bring one.
Loved it! Wasn't too hard wasn't too easy either for me. But I stuck with it and made it about 1.7 miles in. And that's good for me. We're going back, now we know what it's like, going more prepared for next time. It was so beautiful, I couldn't help but stop at the breath taking views & enjoy being out in nature. Fun for the whole family. Perfect weather. Great atmosphere. & seeing all sorts of people made you feel like you were all in it together. I can't wait to get to the falls next time. Hitting my fitness goals one step at a time. Got the discover pass for the year, so that made it easier!
