Description: 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 Mtn. Trail. It is 7 miles to
this junction. From here you can loop back along Arkansas Mtn. 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 vegetaion at first and then mostly aspen and meadows with lots of wildflowers and
spectacular views of the Raggeds Wilderness Area.
Directions: From Carbondale, drive 25 miles south on Hwy 133 to Marble turnoff. Turn left on County Road 3 and continue through Marble to Beaver Lake Lodge; parking is behind lodge. The trailhead is approx. 200 feet above the lodge.
