Wallace Lake/Wallace Falls State Park tour/picnic

Hello Hikers,

It's been awhile since I've been to Wallace lake, or the falls. Let's get re-acquainted with a little tour of Wallace Falls state park. We'll be heading up the Greg Ball trail to the lake, and then coming back down the upper grade trail to the upper falls, down to the middle falls on the Woody trail for a picnic at the benches, and then back down to the trailhead still on the Woody trail.

Getting wet sucks. Bring rain gear. Unless it is raining so much that it's like walking at the bottom of a pool, then I'll make attempts to complete the hike. Challenge your spirit!

    A bit rainy which only made the falls even more beautiful.

    I need to drive to this one because I actually need to measure a wall in Gold Bar on a building that I missed writing down the size on when I was out there this week.
