Storm King Ranger Station reviews
This is a must see location on Crescent lake. The water is incredibly clear. It is the starting point for the trail to Marymere falls.

This is a fairly intense hike. About 2.5 miles out, most of which goes uphill. There are some areas from which you can see Lake Crescent from the main trail but to get the full view you have to go up a non-maintained section of trail that even requires climbing up the side of the mountain using ropes that someone has tied there. The view is absolutely breathtaking but if you plan on attempting it make sure you have good hiking shoes with good tread and maybe some gloves so the ropes don't tear up your hands. I am not very experienced with climbing like that so I would call it difficult-expert level to climb that particular section of the trail but maybe I am just out of shape and kind of a baby when it comes to heights like that. 🤷♀️
Great area with beautiful scenery. I highly recommend checking out the falls. Or if you are up for an easy hike, check out the Storm King trail which affords a beautiful view of the lake.
