My brother and I took a day adventure out to Lake Crescent with hopes of hiking up Mount Storm King, however the nimbostratus clouds rolled in and it began drizzling so we decided half way up to head back down and explore Marymere Falls instead. Marymere Falls is a very short hike which takes you through thick rain forest and takes you alongside and over Falls creek. This hike is great for all ages, it’s flat and straight forward until the end where you have to climb stairs to access the falls. It’s a bit of a drive out to this location from the metro, but it’s definitely a great area to take in the lush nature views.
