OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK
Activity: Day Hike, Scenic View, Chasing Waterfalls
2 miles, 500’ elevation gain, 1 hour duration, rated Easy
The trailhead for Marymere Falls is near the beautiful blue waters of Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Forest. Stop by the Storm King Ranger Station for information.
The trail and the area are exquisite. So green, so lush, you “just gotta’ luv” the tall fir trees, the draping moss, maple trees, abundant ferns and the overwhelming beauty. When you come upon the rushing stream and cross the wooden bridge, you will then begin switch backs leading to the falls. The Olympic National Park definitely knows how to do waterfalls. It is an enchanted hike to be sure.
Marymere Falls is a 90 foot waterfall surrounded by a bewitching old growth forest. This is one of the most popular hikes in the Olympic National Park. Easy hike that is good for the whole family.
Thanks for joining me on my solo hike to Marymere Falls. You might ask, What about your son Alec? Wasn’t he with you?” Alec slept in on this day in the back of the rig from the location of our last adventure, Hurricane Hill, and while I did the Marymere Falls hike. Don’t worry he was still ‘Pursuing Balance Through Adventure’. When I told him on the walkie-talkie-talkie how gorgeous the falls were instead of just joining me for the next hike of the day he used his cross-country skills trail running to the falls and then caught me heading up the steep hike to ‘Storm King.’ The boy’s got wheels!
