Marjorie Lake Trail
Trail Type: Hiking
Length: 5.7 miles
Location: Uinta Mountains, Crystal Lake Trailhead
Elevation Change: 702 feet
The Crystal Lake Trailhead parking lot fills up quickly. There are several other lake trailheads located in the same parking lot and it also accesses the campground. Make sure to look for the Long Lake loop trail which takes you to Marjorie Lake. There is an overflow parking area about a half-mile away.
Note: There is a recreation fee of $6 to park there (cash only) — for both day use and camping use.
This trail is well marked and well worn. It meanders through alpine forests and meadows with small ponds along the way. Wildflowers are abundant in the summer. There are a few shorter, steady climbs to get your heart rate up and some sections are rocky with loose gravel. The area is used for cattle grazing so you might see cows along the trail. Also look out for horse manure.
Marjorie Lake is primarily used for fishing brook trout and arctic grayling. A few primitive campsites with fire pits are also available around the lake.
