As I conclude my blog series on Washington, I believe this picture sums up a good portion of the state in a picture. From the Emerald City, the blue water, outdoor activities, and rocky shorelines, Washington not only makes for a great place to visit, but to live as well.
A little over 40 miles northeast of Bellevue, located on the west side of the Cascade Mountains, lays the trails of Wallace Falls. The trail guide you along three sections of waterfalls: lower, middle, and upper.
Making the journey all the way to the end of the Falls trail puts you in at 2.8 miles, but if you still have energy after that stair-master of a hike, you can travel almost another mile and half to the breathtaking Wallace Lake.
Once you’re off the Falls Trail, you’ll need to look closely for blue markers in the trees to let you know you’re going the right way. Soon as the view of the Lake comes into view, you’ll be so happy you powered through to get to there!
