An easy 0.8 mile hike from Storm King Visitor Center on Lake Crescent.


Travel Instructions

The falls is off US Highway 101 about 22 miles west of Port Angeles or about 38 miles east of Forks along the shore of Lake Crescent. Park at the Storm King Visitor Center and follow the signs.



This is a great year-round waterfall seen by many Olympic National Park visitors. The Park Service seasonally offers nature tours. If it is open, stop at the historic reconstructed ranger station for more information about the Park

    This trail is not wheelchair friendly to the falls. Madison Falls on the Olympic Hot Springs Road into the Elwha Valley has a lovely paved path to the falls.

  5. Tiffany says:

    Can you push a wheelchair to see the falls from the visitor center?

    If you are looking for the rainforest experience, but can’t get as far as the Hoh or Quinault Rain Forests, the walk to Marymere is a good choice. Good trail, big trees, some moss and stunning waterfall. Glad you found the “end of the world”!

    Had the opportunity for a short day wander and Marymere Falls was recommended. The trail is well maintained, ease grade up from Lake Cresent start at the Ranger Station. The amount of climb following the crossing at Falls Creek was moderate and the blend of the nature and trail to the falls was delightful. It is a highly recommended wander in an amongst the wonderful Olympic forest.

  14. Julia says:

    What is the address of the visitor center, where the Marymere Falls trail begins?

  15. waterfalls says:

    Sorry, Marymere Falls is in Olympic National Park. No doggies allowed, leashed or otherwise. Four-legged friends are welcome on Olympic National Forest lands, however. Leashes are required within developed recreation sites, such as campgrounds and day use areas. In all other forest areas please maintain control over your dog, so it doesn’t get involved with wildlife or other visitors. We wouldn’t want anything to happen to your pet with an unwanted wildlife encounter. And, please, clean up after your pet.

  16. Coldwetnoses says:

    Are leashed dogs allowed?

    Couldn’t agree more that Lake Crescent has a special blue color. Enjoyed seeing your photos on the blog. It looks like your boys had a great time, too.

  18. […] Lake Crescent could be one of the bluest lakes I’ve ever seen.  It was amazing.  While we didn’t go out on the lake, we did manage to walk out on the dock and even twenty feet from the shore the water was still crystal clear blue.  After having a lovely lunch at the Lake Crescent Lodge, we took off on a nice hike to Marymere Falls.

    Hi Toasty Marshmallows!
    Glad you got the opportunity to share a hike to Marymere Falls. It’s definitely one of our favorites, but don’t tell the other magnificent waterfalls that we are claiming favorites. It might have something to do with getting to see gorgeous Lake Crescent scenery along the way!

  20. […] in Sequim, we took a day trip to Marymere Falls with our friends Paul and Jordan from the Jardin du Soleil Lavender Farm, their kids and some of […]

    There many more waterfalls on the Peninsula than are highlighted in the Waterfall Trail. How many? I couldn’t say since there are lots of unnamed ones, some are only seasonal, many are in the back country. But because of the land and preciptation, we have an abundance. I’m not sure what ferry terminal? Port Angeles? The nearest one to that terminal is Madison Falls – about 20 drive from the ferry. If you are coming to the peninsula through Port Townsend, the nearest falls would be Ludlow Falls – about 30 minutes. Hope that helps! Give us a call at 360-452-8552 if you’d like more detailed info! Have a safe trip.

  22. Leon' says:

    How many waterfalls are there in the area? Also, how far are they from the ferry terminal?

    There are so many special spots in the Olympic National Park. What about Ruby Beach? Or Cape Flattery? Oh, on the Waterfall Trail, the Hood Canal and the Southern area have some spectacular falls!

  26. waterfalls says:

    So glad you enjoyed Marymere Falls. It’s definitely one of our favorites. And, you are right about access. It could be one of our favorites partly because it’s so close to Port Angeles, Lake Crescent views are spectacular and the trail is always maintained and provides a deep touch to the old forest.
