Day Hike - Wallace Falls

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
  • Moderate
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 5.5 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,300 ft

We'll meet at 7:30am at the Eastmont P&R. This should get us to the Wallace Falls parking lot in time to find space (can no longer park on Ley Road). A Discover Pass, or entry fee is required. We'll set up carpooling at the P&R. Those who do not want to stop for lunch afterward should plan on driving themselves.

Let's take a  short, nearby, easy hike early in the season. I consider this a pretty easy hike, but reaching the upper falls does require 1300ft of elevation gain, so keep that in mind. Family and youth (16+) are welcome with waver on file. We'll stop for lunch after the hike (plan on driving yourself if do not plan on dining with us). Location TBD.
