The Wallace Falls State Park Management Area is a 4,735-acre camping park with shoreline on the Wallace River, Wallace Lake, Jay Lake, Shaw Lake and the Skykomish River. Located on the west side of the Cascade Mountains, the park features a 265-foot waterfall, old-growth coniferous forests, and fast- moving rivers and streams. Opportunities to view local wildlife, including cougar near Wallace Falls, and peregrine falcons inhabit the rock cliffs of the Index Town Wall. The lake, falls and mounts are named “Wallace,” after the name “Kwayaylsh.” Joe and Sarah Kwayaylsh, members of the Skykomish tribe, were the first homesteaders in the area.

Wallace Falls: Love this hike, views and cabins!
September 20, 2019
Wallace is a great place for hiking and enjoying the views of the falls. You don’t have to get to the top viewpoint to see the falls – there are viewpoints along the way. The cabins here are ample and have nice fire pits for evening social time.
