Marmot Point

Marmot Point Professional Review and Guide

"From the windswept summit of Marmot Point, the natural wonderland that is Rocky Mountain National Park is etched in alpine clarity. Chances are you'll reach this summit alone, and chances are you'll never forget the beauty of the journey. The Mummy Range seems but a heartbeat away-you are separated from the peaks by the deep and mysterious forested canyon below.

To the east and south rise Longs Peak and its silvery brethren. To the west, the Never Summer Range barricades the blue, mesa-topped landscape beyond. Keep in mind that you are climbing at altitude-pause often to catch your breath."

Wonderful, fantastic trail with no one else but us on it. Very easy but looks hard at the beginning which must scare people away. Great views on all sides.

What a great little hike. We drove up old Fall River Road on a busy Friday morning. But there was no one on the upper portion of this hike except us. It is steep and you will know you are at 11,000 + elevation. The marmots were great as was the tundra. Take an hour and give this try. The views from the point are awesome!

Beautiful venues, cooperative marmots, and wonderful tundra flora greet you on this short hike. The altitude is noticable for flat-landers like us, so you may want to allow more time than you'd expect. There is certainly much to examine at your feet and among the rocks!
