“I believe that what we get out of life is what we’ve set ourselves up to get, so there’s no such thing as an inconsequential decision. Our destinies are the culmination of all the choices we’ve made along the way, which is why it’s imperative to listen hard to your inner voice when it speaks up.
Don’t let anyone else’s noise drown it out.” – Megan McCafferty

Marble Mountain Wilderness

The Marble Mountain Wilderness is one of California’s oldest formally designated wilderness areas. Originally established in 1931 as the Marble Mountain Primitive Area, it later became one of the original wilderness areas established by the Wilderness Act of 1964. It contains over a quarter of a million acres of rugged mountainous terrain, diverse vegetation and picturesque high elevation lakes and streams. It was named for Marble Mountain, a monolith of white limestone standing 6,880 feet above sea level. Boulder Peak at 8,229 feet is the highest point in the wilderness and the mouth of Wooley Creek at the wilderness boundary is the lowest point at 640 feet.

There are over 600 miles of trails in the “Marbles” ranging from steep little used paths, to well-maintained thoroughfares..
