A very beautiful hike through a forest that is close to a mile long. I recommend you decide if you are going to climb the steps to see the falls before you go all the way there. You will not see any of the falls unless you climb the steps (I estimate the amount of steps to be about going up a six story building) I am in my 70s and went up the steps but I do hiking and biking three times a week to stay in shape; others my age did not attempt it and went back. The park employee said there are about seven accidents per week they have to get emergency help for people who fall on the steps. They are wooden and very slippery when they are wet. Luckily they were dry when we were there. If you want to see a good flow go in May. We were there in September and the flow was much less than it was early in the summer (as we were told). See attached for a photo of the falls in late September.

Marymere is an easily accessible falls that is worth a look if it fits into your schedule. Have I seen better falls? Sure. Is it still nice? Yeah. If you have the choice of one, I would side with Sol Duc. Marymere's lot does not have a fee station to enter, which can make the lot more chaotic, but cheaper if you're looking to skirt the system. Sol Duc seemed to have better parking but has a fee station. Marymere is a tall waterfall without much volume and nice surrounding, whereas Sol Duc is a lower waterfall with a lot of volume and more unique look. Make your decisions based on that. You won't be disappointed though.

A short hike through the woods and across a creek from the Storm King Ranger Station brings you to these wonderful falls. An early arrival ensures you small crowds and a time to view the falls without feeling rushed. The trail is mostly flat except for the final bit where stairs rise to the falls view platform. Photos are best taken from the viewing platform.

This is a beautiful walk through the woods meandering through old growth and moss covered trees. The path is fairly well maintained and the log bridge is solid. One thing is to see the falls you have a steep incline on stairs (6-7 floors). That part of the trail while steep does have handrails all the way to the top.

It was suggested by the adventures In kayaking team not to miss the hike to Marymere Falls at Lake Crescent. It was a mostly easy hike through rainforest trees covered in moss. They were indescribable! And the falls were beautiful! It was only 1 1/2 miles round trip. Worth it!

This is one of our favorite short hikes in the area. Except for a short steep climb at the end, the trail is mostly level through a lush forest with towering giant cedar and fir trees. The trail is only about 3/4 mile and is well traveled. Near the end, there is a sandy riverbank and a steel bridge over the river. A little further on is a log bridge with a railing just before the short climb to the viewpoints of the tall waterfall into a misty pool. The parking lot is by the boat launch on Lake Cresent, so there is an opportunity to splash in the water before or after the hike.

A very beautiful walk, easy for most people. At the end there are steps to view the waterfall. The waterfall is pretty, but not incredible. For us, the hike through the forest was better. The creek running through, and the green ferns and trees were gorgeous. Too many people, but everyone was polite. Couple this hike with a stop at Lake Crescent Lodge to have lunch or rent a kayak or canoe.

We did 4 hikes during our stay in the park, and this one by far was our favorite. An easy hike for families, but still challenging in some spots. The final stretch is a steep climb up deep set steps. I wouldn't recommend that part if you can't climb a normal flight of stairs without pain or breathing problems. The falls are pretty, and the gigantic trees give an almost Jurassic Park feel.

The trail was quite crowded but that was to be expected on an end-of-summer weekend. The last part of the trail is a steep climb up steps but the distance is short. Total round trip is a bit less than 2 miles.

The trail for Marymere Falls is also the first part of the Mount Storm King trail which we did not do. We only did the 1.5 mile loop somewhat easy (until the end) hike to the falls on Saturday 7/31.

When you get close to the end to the falls, there is a little strenuous climb to the viewpoint. The beginning of the trail is through the forest. Flat and easy. We did actually see some people get down to the falls but we did not.

It was pretty crowded when we were there around 10:30 am. It took us 30 minutes to get to the falls.
