Description

Starting from an intersection with Death Canyon Shelf and Death Canyon Trail, head south (left), past an intersection with Fox Creek Trail on your right and Pass Lake on your left. Continue running along this easy, contouring section of the trail as it skirts its way along the west slopes of the aptly-named Spearhead Peak (10,045').

Follow the trail south and run along this mostly level plateau until it begins to descend. Once you start descending, you'll know you're back into the National Park, and you'll see Marion Lake below you. This is a very scenic section of trail with Housetop Mountain (10,439') to your west, and Marion Lake below. From the lake you'll be able to see almost all the way down Granite Canyon!

From Marion Lake, follow the trail as it works its way along the small shelf to an eastward descent. This pass trail terminates at an intersection with Granite Canyon trail and Middle Fork Granite Canyon.
