    It's two-cascade Marion Falls that makes this a five-star hike (although it's a beautiful hike in any event). Lake Ann is the prettier of the two lakes, although Marion Lake is prettier than nearby Pamelia Lake (the opinion here, at least). To get to Marion Falls, from the junction just beyond Lake Ann, take the trail to the right (it was 205 steps for me) to a trail leading off to the right. Follow it to a rock from which you can overlook the top cascade. From here, head down behind the rock (you'll want a hiking pole) and head steep downhill to view both cascades. A spectacular surprise in the wilderness.

    The hike was great but since the fire in 2003 the view is pretty much burned. We explored down to Mariam falls which was the highlight of the trip. we travailed off map with GPS to find it but came across a spur trail on the way which must have been off the main trail. The Falls were amazing falling nearly 150'. It is a must see if you visit Mariam Lake. Be sure to bring bug spray, the mosquitoes are very bad in mid June to September.

    This was my first trip to Marion. I hiked in a float tube and did some fishing. The algae was a trip with polarized lenses looks like you can walk on it. The instructions to the trail head is wrong. Look for Marion Creek Rd not Marion Lake Rd.
    Bring bug spray! Once I put it on they stopped attacking me.
    Very clean trail!!!!! Only saw 2 cigarette butts the whole time. Crossing the dry creek bed hearing the creek below you was a trip imagining the cavern below. Get a $30.00 annual permit before you go. Parking is $5.00. The annual permit pays for itself and is good for a year.

    Good easy trail, bigger cascade lake. Pretty scenic. Made the trip several times and enjoyed all the time up there.
