Martis Creek Trail

Martis Creek Trail

Trail Description.
This trail circles the beautiful Martis Valley west of Highway 267.  Picnic tables and benches can be found along the way.

Moderate for hiking; easy for mountain biking.
For Hikers:  Start at the parking area for a very popular level walk along the creek; expect to encounter lots of dogs and people.  Connects with the Tompkins Memorial Trail for a 3 mile loop.
For Bicycles: Bikes not allowed on trail near the creek. Start at the Tompkins Memorial Trail, halfway down the access road to the parking lot. This is a 3 mile loop around the valley, with numerous possibilities for add-ons as the Tompkins Memorial Trail winds through Northstar.  It is well-signed.

Directions to Trailhead.
From Downtown:  Proceed east onto Brockway Rd from Donner Pass Road.  At the junction with SR 267, turn right.  After the airport, watch for “Wildlife viewing area” sign and turn right into the parking area.
