Need to Know

New for 2021, trails in Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Washington, and Three Sisters Wilderness Areas will require a Central Cascades Wilderness Permit for overnight use and some will require one for day-use.

Description

This trail begins about 1.75 miles up Marion Lake Trail #3436 which this trail is commonly combined with (and Blue Lake Trail #3422) to create a pleasant family-friendly 6 mile lollipop loop.
From Marion Lake Trail #3436 you'll gain a tiny bit of elevation before passing an informal trail that leads to Marion Falls on your right. This is a well-trafficked but very steep trail that leads to two impressive waterfalls. Continue along through the forest and past some rocks for about 0.4 miles whereupon you'll get some nice views far down to Marion Creek. The ridge along the creek is steep. You'll have okay views of the rive until the end of this short trail at Blue Lake Trail #3422 which crosses the creek on a bridge. If you turn left (east) on Blue Lake Trail #3422 you'll be taken along Marion Lake to Marion Lake Trail #3436 upon which a left (west) turn makes the aforementioned loop.
