10am Wallace Falls State Park Trailhead

Discover Pass required 

We will hike up the Greg Ball Trail to the big Wallace Lake, then back down to the river. We will then go up again and hike up to visit all of the waterfall viewpoints to the upper falls.

I do not intend to walk along the logging road between the lake and the upper falls because I have no interest in walking such a road through logging areas. This is why we will stay on the hiking trails and hike up to the lake, back down, then up again to reach the falls. 

I will stop at Timber Monster Brewing in Sultan afterwards for food and beer. Hope you can join me. 

Hike will go rain or shine but will be canceled if steady/heavy rain is forecasted. Hike can also be pushed back to Thursday if weather will be significantly better.
