Long Description:
The Marshall Pass Trailhead is located at an elevation of 10,820 feet about a quarter mile east of the Marshall Pass summit. The trailhead provides access to the Colorado and Continental Divide trails as well as Mount Ouray's west ridge. According to the National Forest sign at the trailhead, Lieutenant Marshall discovered this pass in 1873 "in his dire need to reach a dentist in Denver. Named for his journey, Marshall's maps were used to chart the road over the pass which was completed in 1880." In 1881 the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad used this route to reach Gunnison and Salt Lake City.

Located on National Forest land, there is no fee for use of this trailhead. A roadside pullout provides parking and restroom facilities.
