Marble Peak is an undistinguished bump on a coastal ridge in Big Sur. It is notable for being the destination point of the Marble Peak Trail, which starts at Arroyo Seco and traverses the heart of the Ventana Wilderness. It was used by the Esselen tribe and homesteaders to reach the coast.

There are also shorter approaches from Highway 1 to the west, as described below.

A dirt road, the North Coast Ridge Road, passes within a few hundred feet of Marble Peak, but is closed to vehicles and bicycles.
