Marble Valley Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"You cannot beat a paved road to the doorstep of a wilderness area. This is a moderate hike on a lightly used trail that rewards hikers and dogs with frequent creeks as it climbs past white blooms of delicate dogwood mingled with cedar, Douglas fir, and hemlock trees. Hikers also enjoy glorious views, and the spring lupine are an extra perk.

Marble Mountain (6,680 feet) earned its name from the light limestone cap that gives it the appearance of marble. Marble Mountain and Boulder Peak (8,229 feet) are the centerpiece peaks in the Marble Mountain Wilderness of Klamath National Forest. Due to its isolation from heavily populated urban centers, the “Marbles,” as lovers of this wilderness refer to it, are lightly traveled. Black bears, deer, coyotes, mountain lions, wolverines, quail, woodpeckers, rattlesnakes, and trout share this wilderness ecosystem."
