The Baker Ranger District warns that this loop is "not for the faint of heart." The climb on forest roads to Marble Pass Trailhead gains over 3,200 feet. A turn onto Forest Service Road 6510 (3.5 miles into the ride) signals the start of an excruciatingly steep half-mile climb through a quarry. If you find that you are already fatigued upon reaching FS 6510, turn around. Once through the quarry, however, the views start to open up and the ascent becomes more moderate (from torturous to merely painful). The trails vary greatly in their condition and technical difficulty. Deer Creek Campground is approximately 28 miles southwest of Baker City.
