Description

This trail is split into two distinct sections. The first part descends from Grandmother Mountain and Gold Center Creek - Trail #251. The trail rides the ridge as long as it can before using some switch backs to reach Marble Creek. The trail then crosses Marble Creek (imagine small river, not creek in a big snow year).

At the intersection with Delaney Creek Trail #271 take a left (NNW) and the second part of the trail begins. This is a true river trail, up and down into and out of drainage after drainage. After a few more miles the trail meets Gold Center-Marble Creek Trail #261. Continue following the trail through the intersection of trails (straight at all intersections). After the intersection with #251 there are no more intersections until you get to Hobo Pass Road and the end of the trail.
