I walked to marymere falls

I walked to the falls from the ranger station. The station is only open in the summer. The Marymere falls were beautiful and I highly recommend this hike.

Great place at end of Lake Crescent. Views stunning and ample parking. The hike to Marymere Falls is easy and fun. No dogs though. A good place to stop and rest a bit or have a picnic.

Great stop in a log cabin ranger station. Getting a National Passport stamp is always fun! Great educational topographical maps and trail information in the Lake Crescent, Barnes Creek and Marymere Falls area.

Nice place, yet unlike noted on the map, there are no USNPS rangers there. The kids could not return their junior ranger there, so we had to find another ranger station.

Free parking, restrooms and information near a trail head into the rain forest. It gets more and more lush as you hike in towards a nice waterfall. (Marymere Falls) Easy hike with a well kept trail, about 1.5 miles round trip. Gorgeously lush, with great lighting in the mid-late afternoon. If you're crunched for time and trying to fit Olympic...

Beautiful hike up to Marymere Falls. About 1.5 Miles. Pretty strenuous for an out of shape 65 year old but heard no complaints from anyone else in our party of 9 from 7 to 70+ years.

If you are in need of a bathroom, Storm King is where you want to stop - even on holidays. Take a few minutes to get out, stretch and go over to the edge of Crescent Lake and enjoy the views. If you have more time, go hike to Marymere Falls - the trailhead is here. PS: You can get... More

We were surprised to find the ranger station closed on a Sunday during the summer. We love getting the stamps in our national park book, but didn't get this one :(. The hike to the falls was one of our favorite hikes and the lake is absolutely stunning. Stop by the little store on the lake and get a Port... More

Hiking around this area, to Marymere Falls, etc. was beautiful. The ferns are breathtaking. Make sure you go to the Crescent Lake Lodge even if you don't dine there--beautiful lake. We had lunch there and it was perfect, although the service was very slow.
