This is a lovely and easy trail starting at Crescent Lake, crossing over Barnes Creek and there is an option on this trail in the Olympic National Park to take the fork in the road and visit the Marymere Falls waterfall loop and lookout. Its a beautiful little body of water and the nature all around is so lovely

This starts at Crescent Lake and is a nice easy walk to the beautiful Marymere falls. The trail is pretty flat and easy, near the end and the falls loop, you work a little to gain some elevation but its worth it. No facilities along the trail, so use restrooms at the beginning (parking lot) and fill you water bottles.... More

If you take the hike to Marymere Falls you will cross over Barnes Creek before it feeds into Lake Crescent.

Made us a little pit stop here for a picnic lunch on our way back to the campsite. You can see spawning salmon here.

Most of this trail has been closed for several years as a result of a bridge washing out. The bridge has been repaired and the scenery is awesome. Lots of moss and ferns. Really big trees. Lots of water. A wonderful rain forest experience. Begin hike at Storm King Ranger Station on Lake Crescent. Not super hard but not easy... More
