Directions from Carbondale: Travel south on Hwy. 133 25 miles past Carbondale. Turn left on County road 3 and continue 7 miles to Marble. Parking is available at the old Marble Mill. Hike up the Marble Quarry road 1/2 mile to the trailhead. Upon reaching the trailhead, hike south approximately 1 mile to the fork in the trail. Take the right fork to Raspberry Creek Trail and optionally, you can return from Anthracite Pass on the other trail.

Would not recommend the effort is insane and nothing special at the end.
