I have not heard of this Marble Canyon and I see nothing when I look for it. What is it and where is it?

I'm about 80% there. Should know for sure next week. Still trying to convince the wife to go on a trip but even Cleghorn scared her and that was the last time she went with me. If anyone has a video of Marble Canyon, please post so I can see if it's something she might go on.

The canyon took us about 3 hrs to get through the last time with 6 well built rigs and that time includes fixin one's PSC (30min) and then anothers tie rod that got bent (45min). This canyon has fairly large rocks/boulders that will move while you are crawling over them. Hence, Marble Canyon. The women folk spent most of the time out of the jeeps, yappin. (oh I am gonna pay for that comment)

I have to wait outside and hold her purse... :rofl:

I should have specified: To me that means I stay home and hang with the kids. I have 2 boys, a 1 yo and 4 yo. I might be able to make it if I can find a baby sitter for the 1 yo, then bring the 4 yo. Probably a long shot though. Damn! I really want to run 2n17x again and try Marble Cyn!!

Yep ...that's why its called Marble Canyon!
Everyone that run through it will take a completely different line from the jeep ahead of them because the rocks roll around right under ur tires...sweet!

Hey DaK...I sent an invite to Dave with the white Jk from the club....now that he's got his air lockers new gears and some disconnects ....he'll have some fun!

If you aren't coming right out and saying, "it's out of your league Phil" - then I guess that means I'm in. That Cherokee has dragged me thru Calico, Cleghorn, White Mtn, and Dishpan Springs, with totally open diff in the past. I'll do my best to keep up and not break anything. Thanx :thumb:

I was trying to get more info on marble canyon and found this out of Charles A wells book California back roads & 4-wheel drive trails. It's off the 190 in Death Valley and rated moderate. I'm guessing this is not the same one right?...

DaK 02-22-2013 06:23 AM

That is one old wells book. I don't think you are allowed back there any longer.

That is not the correct Marble Canyon.
