This self-guided, easy walk explains the geology of Marble Canyon and Prospectors Valley. Ideal for families and seniors, this easy stroll tells the geological story of Marble Canyon and Prospectors Valley. A series of interpretive signs highlights topics including how glaciers carved Marble Canyon, how mountains are formed, and the process of erosion. Strategically placed benches provide spots to rest and enjoy the view. At 200 meters you’ll cross Tokkum Creek for the first time; several other bridges follow as you continue through the canyon. Don’t miss the natural arch to your right (east) at 300 meters and the falls Tokkum Creek creates as it forces its way through the canyon at 700 meters.
