This is a great place to take a break driving through the Olympic Rain Forest, take a long or short hike, walk down to the lake and breath in the cool, clean fresh air. Beautifully situated on Crescent Lake.

Marymere Falls trail is a well-traveled trail that can be done with children or by older adults. Be prepared for a steep climb up near the end: take the left at the loop to go up the stairs, and either return by the same way...More

I visit this area often, since I live here, to photograph the falls in different phases and the black-tail deer and other local fauna. Each season will offer a different spectrum of beauty, just dress for the season you are here and you will not...More

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.
