Marble Mountain Wilderness

Marble Mountain Wilderness

Craggy peaks, abundant meadows, large streams, and a whopping 89 lakes highlight this wild and pleasant area. Most of the lakes are gems set in rocky settings, and at least one-third of the Wilderness is cloaked in a great variety of trees, dominated by tanbark oak, madrone, and Douglas fir lower down, and whitebark pine, foxtail pine, and mountain hemlock higher up. You will find alpine meadows and bare rock in the highest elevations. Bear, deer, and many other species of wildlife are plentiful. Most of the peaks exceed 6,000 feet in height, with Boulder Peak being the highest at 8299 feet. Numerous trails provide excellent and extensive access to the Wilderness, and human use is rated as moderate. Most of the trails offer relatively easy travel for humans and horses.
