Marble Peak Trail is a 25.5 mile out and back trail located near Big Sur, CA that features a great forest setting. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking.
An awesome trail! From Arroyo Seco Gorge parking to the spacious Willow Springs camp is about 6.5 miles. Roughly 15 very easy river crossings (5-8ft wide creek, really). A bit muddy in a few spots. Beautiful narrow canyon with steep sides, mostly uphill the whole way but not crazy steep. Very scenic and quiet. Several camp options for trekking further and a few along the way if you want a closer destination. If you go further, fill up water at Willow Springs, I went exploring a couple miles past and it goes up over a pass far from the river.
