Features Views

Family Friendly Kids can easily handle this road's smooth surface and moderate grades, and they'll love the view from up top!

Description

From the roadside parking area, simply follow the smooth road as it climbs to the top of Martis Peak. There's even a picnic table next to the Fire Lookout where you can stop for a quick lunch. Soak up the views before returning the way you came.

This road is a short hike off of the TRT: Brockway Summit to Tahoe Meadows and gives an excellent view of Lake Tahoe and Truckee from the Fire Lookout.

Flora & Fauna

We saw lots of butterflies and beautiful tall trees.

Excited! It's a beautiful day. Little patches of snow in the shady spots. — 12h 48m
