Mount Marathon Jeep Trail
- 4 ml
- 3 hr
531 1st Ave
Best Time of Year: May 01 - Nov 30
You'll find the trail head on the north end of 1st Ave. The Jeep Trail immediately ascends a set of steep switch backs zig-zagging you through a spruce and hemlock forest. The trail mellows out through tree line, then again lifts out of the alders and eventually into the Marathon Bowl. From here, you can wander through the bowl admiring the sublime alpine. Or, continue upwards on rocky shale to Race Point, which overlooks Resurrection Bay.
