Barnes Creek is a small stream that flows in the U.S. state of Washington from the base of Mount Storm King and Aurora Ridge into Lake Crescent. Barnes Creek is also fed by Marymere Falls. Barnes Creek sustains the spawning habitat for the endemic Crescenti cutthroat trout. It flows onto Barnes Point, an ancient landslide delta, and into Lake Crescent.
Barnes Creek and Barnes Point take their name from Paul Barnes, who settled at Barnes Point in 1890.

  • Lovely walk along Barnes creek. Views of the creek and hillsides are nice even in winter. The maps at the Port Angeles visitors center say that the first four miles of trail are well-maintained but we ran into numerous spots where fallen branches or trees completely blocked the path-probably due to it being the off season.
