Hiked Mount Marriott on Tuesday, Sept 8th under sunny conditions. Road to the trailhead definitely requires a high clearance vehicle, there’s lots of potholes and one section with a rock that’ll potentially scrape the bottom of your vehicle - it’ll save you 2km of walking. Beginning of trail to the hut is minimally muddy in a few sections but easy to follow. (Hut is closed due to covid). From the hut there are a few trails that lead to boulder fields....from then on all you can expect is boulders to the summit. Will require route finding, but once you’re on the ridge you can see Marriott in the background. The 360’ views are 100% worth it!! Definitely an endurance push, took us 5h 45mins from car to summit at a fast pace.

Nice trail, not too strenuous. Lower Marriott Lake is stunning! Lots of mosquitoes!

Hiked into camp near the hut this past weekend. Enjoyed amazing views, screaming marmots, and wildflowers. Scrambled around Marriott Mountain the following day and then hiked down on Sunday. Trail was muddy in parts (it was raining on our way in) but never a problem to find ways around : )

just did this hike over the weekend, but only to the marriot basin (the lake) as the hut is closed. no snow, really fun trail with differing terrain. took 5 hrs total with a lunch stop. the dogs loved it! car parking possible for non- 4wheel drive at the start of the trail, if you have 4 wheel drive you can park a little further up.

You could likely drive in closer to the actual trailhead if you have a high clearance veichle— however there is limited parking and places to turn around. The trail itself was absolutely amazing-I lived breaking into the alpine. The Wendy Thompson jut is currently closed due to COVID but the site seems impressive for winter activities. This part of the trail feature several man made bridges and boardwalk type structure. Parts of the trail go through a boulder field without the best marking, so just stick close to the lake to stay on the trail! Checked out Rohr Lake on the way back (it was VERY muddy) and there were tons of people camping, likely because Joffre is still closed

Worth the trek through all of the snow! We camped overnight at the basin and had the whole thing virtually to ourselves (a single guy who came to take in the view and left). We did not being snowshoes and roughed it all the way up, would heavily recommend to bring them but not impossible without. This made the ascent slow (4.5 hours) but coming down took us about 2 hours Snow began at the start of the trail. Absolutely stunning views and we lucked out with gorgeous weather. Can’t wait to see it in the summer!

Snow starts about 10 ft from the highway. Awesome hike with a gorgeous 360 view of the snow covered mountains in the basin. Ascent was difficult in the snow, but worth it!

Great hike! Nothing too steep. Took us 3.5 hours to get to Wendy Thompson hut but we spent quite a bit of time in the boulder field trying to find the trail since everything was covered by snow- made it a little trickier! 2 hours back down the next morning. Wendy Thompson Hut is top notch!!

Truly amazing view from the top of the ridge, well justified the duration of the trail. It took me near 10 hours round trip from the highway and I spent only 30min on the top. there are a few spots foe parking on the fsr road close to the trail Trail is well marked until the hut and then to the ridge it requires very good luck to find cairns. This app and my phone GPS was helpful to follow the trail, it got very technical after the hut with a lot of scrambling at the top

First to Review

Did this early August on a hot day. Not too crowded, snow had melted and trail was really well maintained. Wildflowers, verdant meadows, creeks, streams, waterfalls, oh my! The wild flowers were perfectly peaking making for a picture book scene. Loved the lake and the upper basin pool-like lake too. Looked like an infinity pool and made for a great plunge on a hot day.
