Points of Interest

1. Upper Works Trailhead

No fee to park here. The trailhead for this hike is at the very end of the Upper Works Road.

2. Crossing the Flowed Lands

In the depth of winter you will probably be safe crossing directly across the lake on skis or snow shoes but in spring or summer you'll need to follow the gps track in this guide. You wil have great views towards Mt. Colden in the distance on the right.

3. Herdpath up Herbert Brook

Here you will depart from the Calamity Brook Trail and start heading up the herdpath up Marshall which follows Herbert Brook. Photos below are what Herbert Brook Looks like in the winter.

4. Summit of Mt. Marshall

You are now at 4,379 feet on the wooded summit of Mt. Marshall. Just re-trace your path all the way back down to your vehicle. On your way down keep an eye on the horizon for views.
