This hike is divided into three sections. Small Falls, Lower Falls and Upper falls. The entire hike is approximately 5 miles. Small falls about 1.5 miles into the start. Lower falls approximately 2 miles up and upper falls on the 5th mile mark.

The hike starts with a well groomed trail and then moves to "off road" with rocks, roots and switchbacks. Can be very challenging however is inspiring. It was wonderful to have a bit of rain, hearing it fall but due to the canopy, not see...More

We hiked up the Wallace State Falls. It was very impressive. The hike itself was pretty gentle at first, but then did get a bit steep. Make sure you have decent hiking shoes! Take plenty of water and pack a light lunch. There is a...More

Nice, flat, low level hike till you get to the falls. At that point you can either enjoy the view from below or have a grunt to the top. Either way its worth the time to stop.

Regarding the cabins, what are the BBQ "stands" like? Does anyone have any photos?

It's a little square pit on a stand, sort of like a hibachi grill on a pipe stand.

There seems to be space large enough for an RV. (but i'm not sure about staying overnight) On the weekend in good weather get there early in order to get a parking space. Good luck!
Anyone stay here in the winter time, such as early December? Will snow or weather be a problem around that time of year? How is the hiking in December?

Weather can be anything from sunny to deep snow. Watch the weather for Gold Bar area to get an idea when the weather will be nice.
