Marion Lake and Marion Mt are on the west side of Mt Jefferson Wilderness off Hwy 22. If we make it to the summit for the views than the hike will be 11.2 miles and 2000ft elevation gain. Part of this hike is in the 2003 burn. If we get stuck in down trees or snow than there are 2 other trails to do from the lake. We might see Rhodes and bear grass. There is a stream, waterfall, views of Mt Jefferson and Three Finger Jack and Lake Ann.
