This loop hike will take in Wallace Falls and Wallace Lake using a combination of the main Wallace Falls trail, a forest road and the Gregg Ball Trail. We'll move fairly quickly in keeping with the CHS2 requirements but will also stop and take breaks along the way. 

After the hike, let's plan to stop somewhere on the way back to town for a bite to eat. 

As always, bring the ten essentials.  If you have questions, ask!
