We didn't go right to Lake Marion, just the 10min walk to the Waterfall. But it's well worth it, so would definitely recommend the detour.

Tough but manageable. Views are definitely worth the hike. We took 4 hours 45 minutes for the return hike, which includes short breaks and an hour enjoying the lake. The hike roughly breaks up into three equal sections in duration. The first has moderate difficulty. The second is tough. And the third is also moderate. Bring enough water! Hiking poles and good shoes recommended. Snack are also a good addition. Can consider swimming at the lake but it is very cold. One negative is that the toilet at the carpark is very smelly. (There’s a toilet at the lake but we didn’t use it.)
Words and photos can't describe how good this place is on a foggy day. The hike is quite easy with some uphill bits at times. A must do it you're in fjordland!
