A storm in recent years has washed out a section of FR 8312 just beyond the Marble Mountain Snowpark. At the edge of the parking lot, where the road begins, the Forest Service has placed several jersey barriers and a locked gate. It appears that there are no plans to repair this section of the road. The only other access to Marble Mountain is from the south, via timber lands owned by Pope Resources / Rayonier. All of the access roads from the south are gated and open only for logging activity, or the few residents that live in the middle of the timber land.

Hiking in from the snowpark is ok, it is approximately 5.25 miles to the summit via road 8312.
