The trail starts a quarter mile up Yule Creek trail and ends at Anthracite Pass. This is a short, very steep trail. Most people agree that the climb is worth the beautiful views from atop the Raggeds Wilderness. There is hiking and heavy horse use on this trail in the fall during hunting season. Great area to view wildflowers. You can also get to the pass from the Raspberry Creek trail.
Directions: From Carbondale`, Travel south on Colorado Highway 133 for 25 miles past Carbondale. Turn left on to County Road 3 and continue 7 miles to the town of Marble.
