Wallace and Jay Lakes are quite beautiful and fairly quiet. I ran into only a couple other hikers while I was having lunch. Would definitely consider camping up here with people who are inexperienced.
On the trip down I took a different trail which eventually connects you up to the railroad grade. There are several point where you can hear large waterfalls but there are no clear viewpoints.
Overall a very enjoyable and easy hike that is accessible both in terms of location to Seattle and to people of varying fitness levels. Red and yellow raspberries were everywhere also, a great snack along the way.
