This trail has various vegetation at first and then mostly aspen and meadows with lots of wildflowers and spectacular views of the Raggeds Wilderness Area.

The first 1 1/2 miles travels through private property to the stream crossing, so please stay on the trail. The trail gets steep after the stream crossing for a 1/2 mile, then moderate until just before the pass. At the crossing the trail makes a sharp turn to right and goes uphill before a second, smaller stream. After the pass it is a steep descent to Arkansas Mt. Trail. It is 7 miles to this junction. From here you can loop back along Arkansas Mt. trail, which joins back into Carbonate about a mile after the trailhead. This trail also connects with the North Lost trail. This trail has various vegetation at first and then mostly aspen and meadows with lots of wildflowers and spectacular views of the Raggeds Wilderness Area.

Directions: From Carbondale, Travel south on Hwy. 133 for 25 miles past Carbondale to the Marble turnoff. Turn left onto County road 3, continue to the community of Marble and park behind the Beaver Lake Lodge at the trailhead.
