Near the top of Old Fall River Road is a short, but somewhat steep hike to great 360 views of mountains, forest, meadows, and canyons. Marmots will entertain your hike to the top. While this is easy for regular hikers, it could be a little challenge for non-hikers. You are above the tree line, so expect cool to cold winds, especially at the top. There is limited parking available and the trail is very easy to follow.

One of several places to stop and stretch your legs along Old Fall River Road. Great views in all directions as you are above the tree line. Yes, there is a reason they call it Marmot Point as the little critters will dot your path.
