Located just off of a busy highway and reached by a wide short nature trail help make Marymere Falls one of the most popular waterfalls on the Olympic Peninsula. But if it was harder to reach, this 90-foot horsetail cascade set in deep mossy timber would still be a well-visited destination.
Follow a well-groomed nature trail through a tunnel beneath US 101. Soon afterward turn left at a junction and follow Barnes Creek upstream under a cool canopy of old-growth giants. Pass the Mount Storm King Trail and reach the trail for falls. Take it crossing Barnes Creek on a bridge and then climbing to a cool narrow ravine where Marymere Falls plummets 90 feet down a rock face. Follow a short loop to several vantages for viewing the cataract.
