Marilyn Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"The side trails to Marilyn Lakes offer a nice detour from the snow-traveler’s highway of Gold Lake. If the popular Gold Lake Road is crowded, then duck into the woods and explore these lakes, which are beautiful gems tucked into the subalpine forests of Willamette Pass. There’s a nice view of Diamond Peak from the northern side of Lower Marilyn Lake. And because the elevation gain is all but negligible, it’s not that much of a difference to sneak off and explore these lakes. You can make a longer loop and drop down into Gold Lake from the Marilyn Lakes area and hike back via the road to Highway 58."
