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 run 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.
