What a beautiful hike. We parked at the cluster of mailboxes. We had a nice conversation with a worker at the shop in Crystal and learned that the family owns much of the river on both sides between Marble and Crystal. Bring plenty of water and wear really sturdy footwear. We went on a weekday which was nice. I’d guess we were passed by 20 motorcycles, 10 cars and 15 ATV’s during our 7 hour leisurely hike. 1st mile is pretty steep.
