After heading almost straight up the entire hike with steep switchbacks and rope climbing sections, this view over Crescent Lake at the top is worth it! Nestled in the northern foothills of the Olympic Mountains, Lake Crescent lies about 18 miles west of Port Angeles. The pristine waters of this deep, glacially carved lake make it an ideal destination for those in search of natural beauty.

While on the road visit La Push, Rialto Beach, and Forks for a PNW roads are the best with their mossy greens and thick forests.
Just after the parking lot to the Storm King Ranger Station, turn left and you'll see this view. Nature's gift Easy and short (0.9mi) but also beautiful and fun hike, would definitely recommend this hike....especially for those looking to take it a bit easier! It doesn't really get more PNW looking than the storm king ranger station.
It's just a few feet from the parking lot and makes for some good photos, particularly when there is low fog in the area. Best overlook of Lake Crescent. #hiking #weekendgetaway #mountains This is a hike which is across the lake crescent. It's a pretty strenuous hike to the top, but absolutely rewarding. #olympicNP #BeautifulPNW #lifeatexpedia Beautiful places to stay, dine, kayak, hike, etc. within ONP. Easy and challenging hike at the same time. Marymere Falls One of the prettiest spots in wildly diverse Olympic National Park. #snow #roadtrip Beautiful and mystic view from our lodge @Lake Crescent #olympicnationalpark #WinterWonders Lake Crescent is a serene lake surrounded by the Rain forests and conserved for the lodge purposes. #olympicnationalpark #WinterWonders This place never disappoints! #Green #PNW Gorgeous lake on the way to Port Angeles This short hike starts at the Storm King Ranger Station and leads to beautiful Marymere Falls.
Distance: 1.8 Roundtrip
Elevation gain: 500ft A break in the rain for us to view this amazingness 😍 Lake Crescent, a peaceful spot surrounded by green mountains and amazing blue water #hiking #lifeatexpedia At 1.8 miles and 500ft of elevation, the Marymere Falls is a perfect hike for families with old or young. The reward at the end of the hike is fantastic! #LifeAtExpedia Golden morning #lifeatexpedia Nice little hike by Lake Crescent. Only about 1.5 miles to the falls. Following the trail. #green #pnw Take a peaceful walk in the woods and over Barnes Creek bridge while at Crescent Lake's Bovee's Meadow day use area. Beautiful, easy loop trail near Lake Crescent with old-growth trees and plants to admire along the way. We hiked this trail in September...perfect time of year when tourism is low. It is a very peaceful and calming place to take in the sounds of the waterfall. #NationalPark Lovely location on Lake Crescent, with a huge lawn dotted with little cabins, some from the early 1900's. By the shore, next to the boat dock, is this enclosed stone fireplace, open view back to the lodge.
The road along the lake is 10 miles of winding turns around every curve of the lake through the forest. Warm, sunny day with the windows down = the smell of summer. Enjoy Crescent Lake by the lodge at Bovee's day use area, pretty even on a cloudy, misty day. Olympic Peninsula has the best shades of green. #green #pnw Visit Bovee's Meadow day use area by the lodge on Crescent Lake to enjoy a picnic, the open lawn, lake, and wooded trails. Nice stop on East Beach next to the resort in Olympic National Park to walk on the dock, launch a boat, fish, walk tree lined trails. Washington glacial lakes ... far from tropical!
