Take a detour away from the busy 14ers of the Sangre De Cristo's and enjoy a jaunt up Marble Mountain! This view is especially great at sunrise as you have great views of the Needle getting first light. You can also complete this route in winter as I did, but beware if no one has travelled this before you will have plenty of trailbreaking through the trees. Class 2. Overall, a great route that I would highly recommend.
