Barnes Creek Trail - Lake Crescent
Olympic National Park
For those visiting the Lake Crescent area of Olympic National Park, destinations such as Marymere Falls and the Lake Crescent Lodge are very popular. Less popular but equally accessible is the Barnes Creek Trail – a meandering foray into one of the park’s most beautiful old growth forests. The trail follows scenic Barnes Creek through impressive douglas fir and western hemlock with ample opportunity to spot wildlife.
