Martis Peak Fire Lookout reviews
We hiked to Martis Peak from Brockway Summit on 267 just outside King City, North Lake Tahoe. It was a fairly nice hike through the forest and then through a meadow. The trail is listed as... more »
Great fairly short hike on a dirt road to an old fire lookout. Snowshoe in the winter, hike the road in the summer. View is excellent. Good for kids too. more »
Off the beaten path, but we'll worth it! Unrivaled views of Lake Tahoe and surrounding area, all from a restored firewatch tower. Toilet on site, and the tower may be open when you visit (it's not usually staffed). The drive up is from an active logging road, so watch out for trucks! The first 100' from the highway is in rough shape, but the rest of the drive is great. Park at the gate, the easy paved walk to the tower takes about 20 minutes. You'll probably be the only ones up there on your visit :)
Quick hike with rewarding views. An easy recommendation!
