Update

09/16/2022

Update: The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) crossing of Marble Brook (NOBO mile 2,067.4) remains flooded due to a beaver dam built downstream. The crossing remains safe as the deepest part of the crossing has a solid gravel bottom and there is almost no current. Due to dense growth in the surrounding area, hikers should continue to follow the Trail and wade across rather than try to bushwhack to find an alternative route.

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) crossing of Marble Brook (NOBO mile 2,067.4) has been flooded by a beaver dam built downstream near the confluence of the Bald Mountain Stream. Flood waters have been reported at waist level at the Trail crossing of Marble Brook. Since the crossing and confluence are behind the dam, the flooding is largely standing water.

Hikers should use caution until flood waters recede. Learn more about how to safely cross rivers and streams here: https://appalachiantrail.org/explore/plan-and-prepare/hiking-basics/safety/river-and-stream-crossings/
