Route Description for Marmot Point Trail

Travel among the clouds as you ascend the exposed path to the summit of Marmot Point. Though this path is relatively easy, the high altitude of the area presents its challenges. Make sure you are acclimated to the area’s elevation and check the weather forecast for summit storms prior to your journey. Though incredibly picturesque, the exposed terrain warrants windy and cold conditions, so make sure you wear plenty of layers! Lastly, visitors are required to purchase a Rocky Mountain National Park pass to adventure the trails.

From the Marmot Point Trailhead, the Marmot Point Hike treks northeastward. Hike the well-marked terrain through the alpine tundra and keep your eyes peeled for marmots! The further you hike the more impressive the view! Ascend the exposed path to the summit of Marmot Point let the beautiful scenery take your breath away.

Revel in the panoramic views of the Continental Divide, Mummy Range, and the No Summer Mountains! When you are ready, retrace your steps back along the path to the trailhead.
