Upper Wallace Falls

Under the buzzing of the power lines take in views of highway 2 peaks, Persius, Index and Mount Baring. The Woody trail lives up to it’s name and offers a short interpretive trail at Small Falls. Work your way over stream crossings in lush forest to the lower falls picnic shelter and viewpoint. This is a good destination for kids. The trail becomes more rocky and rooty and steeper on the way to the Middle falls, one of the highest in the state and also the most dramatic viewpoint back across the valley. A short jaunt even steeper and rockier trail to the upper falls viewpoint.
