Fodor's Review

A few miles up Highway 133 from Redstone lies Marble, a sleepy town that attracts seekers of rural solitude who make it their summer residence and winter retreat. The tiny hamlet was incorporated in 1899 to serve workers of the Colorado Yule Marble Quarry, whose extraordinary stone graces the Lincoln Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknowns in Washington, D.C. Walk the Marble Mill Park Trail to see remnants of the old marble-processing mill. Other historic sites include a two-story schoolhouse now used by the Marble Historical Society Museum, and the Marble Community Church. Marble is also the gateway to one of Colorado's most-photographed places: the Crystal Mill. Set on a craggy cliff overlooking the river, the 1893 mill harkens back to the area's mining past; it's also the perfect place to enjoy a picnic lunch in the solitude of the Colorado Rockies. A four-wheel-drive vehicle is needed to get you here in good weather (your feet will have to do on rainy days when the road isn't passable).
