Route Description for Marie Creek Trail
The Marie Creek Trail offers a peaceful ambiance, perfect for self-reflection and reconnection with nature. While the summer is our favorite season to venture this route, winter exploration is equally as scenic—just strap on a pair of snowshoes! While we dub this adventure tranquil, there are some steep sections that will get your heart racing, so pack plenty of water to stay hydrated. Additionally, it is important to be mindful of wildlife as you wander.
Embark on your adventure along the Marie Creek Hike from the trailhead off National Forest Development Road 202. From here, the Marie Creek Trail will dramatically climb into the woodlands. Mind your footing on the steep, uneven terrain, and after some hiking, the trail will plunge into the forested valley. Now traveling east along Marie Creek, you will be lulled into a state of relaxation by the sounds of the gurgling water. Eventually, the path will redirect you southward, guiding you to an intersection; keep right here.
Beyond this point, the forested path will climb towards Copper Mountain. Enjoy the beauty of the luxuriant landscape, and you will soon reach the trail’s end. From here, turn around and retrace your footing along the path back to the trailhead.
