About Marymere Falls
With its proximity to Lake Crescent and Highway 101, Marymere Falls is an easily accessible hike in Olympic National Park. The hike takes you through lush old-growth forest and the well-maintained trail makes it a relatively easy hike.
A relatively easy trail
The trail’s roughly a 1.5-mile loop starting at Storm King Ranger Station just outside the shore of Lake Crescent. The trail is mostly flat until you get closer to the falls. You’ll pass over two bridges before getting to the base of the falls where you have the option to climb to a higher elevation for a better view.
Marymere Falls View
The hike to Marymere Falls is a 90-foot waterfall and you’ll have a few viewpoints from the base of the falls up towards the top. This is where the trail may get difficult for some as you will have to hike up some stairs and it gets a little crowded if you’re there at a peak time.
You’ll feel the light mist of the falls as you take in the sights, at this point the mist is very refreshing! Soon you’ll be hiking back to the parking lot so take it all in and enjoy a few moments without your camera or phone in your face.
