Went up today. Trees down on trail but easy to get over. About a foot of water running out of Lake Ann and down the trail but can cross the rocks. Deep snow most all the way from Ann to Marion Lake. Was nice and not many people up there.

Awesome hike! Last 0.7 miles of the access road is paved, but not a problem.

This trail was really fun and we enjoyed the waterfalls and a quick swim in the lake!

The trail to Marion Lake was really fun for our family (3 kids ages 11,8,6). The best part were the side trails though. Marion and Gooch Falls was spectacular! We found directions from the book, Bend Overall (p.156). For Marion Falls: When you reach the junction on the hike you go right at the "outlet trail" for 213 steps, there on the right you will find a trail that you will stay on for about 5 min, then another 3 min scramble to see the falls. Gooch Falls: located down the road from the trailhead about a mile - you will see a green gate (FS 850), park and walk. You walk this trail for about 10 min to see the falls. TOTALLY worth it! The scramble to both falls is a bit difficult so make sure you're up for it...but my kids did it just fine. I posted pics of both falls.

The map shows two trail portions. The first portion is part of Marion Lake Trail #3436 which goes to the junction with Lake of the Woods Trail #3493 and Minto Pass Trail #3437. Marion Outlet Trail #3495 is the loop portion which intersects with Blue Lake Trail #3422. Marion Lake is the largest lake in My. Jefferson Wilderness Area.

Trail was nice and clear all the way to the lake. Attempted to make it to blue lake but ran into significant snow at 5000 feet.

Just hiked up to the picturesque Marion Lake yesterday for my first visit. As others have mentioned below, it's a beautiful hike, starting in a diverse forest and passing through some talus on up to the lakes. Made a side trip to the falls, but didn't photograph them as the sun would've been directly on the lens. Will definitely make a trip back up for that.

The area had just re-opened after a nearby fire, so there was only one other group on the lake. A rare lack of crowds.
