Hwy 101, 20 miles W of Port Angeles
Marymere Falls is a fairly easily accessed 90-foot waterfall in Olympic National Park. A mile-long hike from the parking area at Lake Crescent to the base of the falls passes through an old-growth forest of cedar, fir and hemlock trees, and is relatively flat and easy to hike. That gets you to the water from the falls as it flows into Barnes Creek.
Here's where the hike becomes more challenging. A short but steep loop trail leads up to two areas that provide good views of the falls. The photo below was taken from the uppermost of the two viewing areas.
