Washington State Travel: Looking for suggestions near/accessible to Wallace Falls State Park

I am planning a trip to Washington (state) in August. Most of the details are confirmed, but I have a few days that I'd like to fill...

I'll be visiting friends in Seattle and on Vashon Island, but this trip is meant more for me to have some meditative time - getting perspective, time alone, reflecting, etc. in a beautiful place.
Three days into the trip I'll be traveling from Vashon to Wallace Falls State Park, which, from what I've read is relatively accessible by public transit and walking (I will not have access to a car!). I have a cabin there reserved for three nights, and I was hoping to stay at the cabin for 4 or 5 nights, but for some reason ALL cabins on the Wallace Falls reservation web site seem to be closed starting the 4th night, opening again the 5th. As it stands I have one reserved for 3 nights.
I'm hoping to find something to do with that extra night (or two) - preferably close-ish to Wallace Falls. My biggest concerns are transportation - getting there without a car, and relative ease of getting back to Seattle (all modes of transportation other than me driving a car are options).
I'm completely open to suggestions, although I prefer something outdoors-ish. I will not have a tent with me, although it might not be impossible for me to get one (unfortunately the two campsites at Wallace Falls are first come first served...)
Any ideas with what to do with myself for the extra night (or two)? I could easily stay with one of my friends but, again, the aim of this trip is to really have some good reflective time (bad break up, job troubles, etc.). I'm hoping for some productive and healing time by myself - so an atmosphere conducive to that would be ideal.
So many thanks in advance!
