This website is dedicated to waterfalls and how to get to them without turning
right when a left turn is needed. But, I just had to include this shot of Lake Ann.
I was on my way to find Marion Falls nearby. A four foot snowdrift stopped me cold.
At the place where I stopped I realized I was seeing something new to my eyes -
snow...sitting on ice...on a lake! The trees highlighted in the center are a plus.

Directions: Two routes

  1. Once on Marion Crk Rd note your odometer reading or reset your trip odometer.
  2. Count up 4.5 miles to the trail starting point. Northwest Forest Pass required.
