Hike Description

This challenging snowshoe climbs for the first 4 miles, gaining over 1700 feet in elevation before topping out at the Martis Peak Lookout. The rewards are spectacular views of Truckee and Donner Pass, and Sierra Buttes and Lake Tahoe to the south. We will enjoy lunch at the top, so don’t forget to bring one. Before signing up for this snowshoe be certain that you can hike 8 miles in snowshoes at altitude keeping in mind that there is a significant elevation gain. Please have a level of self-awareness. If you hiked all summer but have been hibernating all winter, this may not be the trek for you. Contact the TRTA office for advise on less ambitious self-guided, snowshoe adventure.
