Overview

The Marvine Trail crosses a meadow just south out of the parking area, climbs a short incline and then enters the Flat Tops Wilderness after .5 mile. The trail follows Marvine Creek through a narrow valley for .5 mile, then breaks into wide, grassy meadows flanked by aspen, spruce and fir. At 4 miles above the trailhead, the trail comes to Slide Lake. As the trail fords the creek at Slide Lake, the valley narrows with small parks between stands of aspen and mixed conifers. Six miles from the trailhead, it reaches lower Marvine Lake. The trail again fords the stream and follows the east side of the lake to upper Marvine Lake. Above the lakes, the trail enters a spruce and fir forest and climbs rapidly for 4 miles onto the Flat Tops Plateau, where it meets the Oyster Lake Trail (#1825) 10.8 miles from the Marvine Trailhead.
