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.
