Trail starts in the neighborhood on northeast side of the town of Marble. It is singletrack through lush vegetation and flowers crossing a dirt access road a couple times before reaching the crossing of Carbonate Creek. The trail continues past and then alongside Carbonate Creek and its tributary streams. Wind in and out of Aspen forests and meadows before nearing treeline just above 11k feet. Trail continues around the north side of Mt Daly before connecting to other trails near Lead King Basin. Beautiful wildflowers and views of the Marble valley below.
