Proceeding from Everett on Hwy 2, approach the city of Gold Bar. Turn left onto 1st Street, then drive .4 miles and take a right onto May Creek Rd (there will be Wallace Falls signage for both turns). 

Snake your way up May Creek Rd for 1.3 miles until you reach a Y-junction. Right will take you into Camp Huston, so proceed left and drive up a short path into the Wallace Falls State Park parking lot. The lot is spacious, but can easily fill up on the weekends as the park is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. 

Please do not park along the road that accesses the parking area for Wallace Falls State Park. 

There are bathroom facilities just off the parking lot and also on the trail (just a quick .2 mile detour at the 1.5 mile marker on the Woody trail). The hours of operation for the park are 8 a.m.-dusk. The information kiosk should have a clock clearing labeling sunset as reference for hikers heading out. 

A Discover Pass is required for visitors but can be purchased at a dispenser in the Wallace Falls parking lot.
