Campout details:

Our base camp for the weekend will be at Marble Mountain Sno Park. This is a paved parking lot with areas close by ideal for dispersed camping. There is also ample space for RVs & Campers; however, no electricity or water on site. Be prepared & bring everything that you need. 

Bathroom – 2 vault toilets (bring toilet paper!).

PET (DOG) OWNERS: If you bring your pet, know that you cannot leave them unattended at the base camp. Due to the steep hillside & narrow terrain of the trail, we DO NOT recommend that they join you while working on the trail.
