Wallace Falls

Woody Trail

5 miles roundtrip

 

FEBRUARY 17, 2007  - A solo hike.  The Woody trail at Wallace Falls State Park was heavily used on this warm Saturday.  Wallace Falls, which is visible from nearby Highway 2,  is 265' high.  A sign near the start of the trail quotes Wordsworth:  "Come forth into the light of things.  Let nature be your teacher."  The trail follows the course of the Wallace River through a moss draped forest before it crosses the river and climbs up to the first of 3 viewpoints of the falls.  After leaving the lower falls viewing area, the trail becomes more steep and switchbacks up through a second growth forest to viewpoints of the middle and upper falls.
