Hike Summary: We used to go to Marble to go rock climbing in the Fall and Winter. The hike was nice you could see the quarry from the trail. The marble was use in some of the older buildings in town. Some of it is still stacked on rail road ties as if in storage. There is a old rock house in the canyon also. There is a well worn ATV road next to it now from the new owners.
