Runner Notes

This trail has a significant elevation gain.

Description

The Little North Fork Trail is a singletrack dirt and gravel trail that is a steep and tough alternate access trail into the English Peak area of Marble Mountain Wilderness. The trail may seem like a faster way in, but is certainly not easier than the North Fork Trail. The trail ends at Hamiliton Camp on the ridge, but a steep 'shortcut' can be taken to reach English Peak via Snowslide Gulch Trail.

On some maps, the North Fork Trail is shown continueing past English Peak and into the Little North Fork drainage, however, this section of trail is referred to locally as the Little North Fork Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Bear, deer, eagles, hawks.
