Residents currently enjoy a 4.6-mile segment of the Martis Valley Trails, which opened to residents in August 2022. The trail is a paved pathway that connects the Town of Truckee through the Martis Valley to Northstar Drive, enabling pedestrians and bicyclists the ability to easily trek between these two popular destinations.
The project was a collaboration between Placer County and Northstar Community Services District and includes partnerships with the United States Army Corp of Engineers, Truckee Donner Land Trust and Northstar California /Vail Resorts.
The trail will ultimately become part of the Resort Triangle Trail, which, when complete, will consist of 62 miles of trails connecting the communities of Kings Beach, Tahoe City, Olympic Valley, Truckee, Martis Valley and Northstar in a great big loop trail. The loop will be paved and separated from highways and roads to maximize the safety and experience of trail users.
When fully built, the Martis Valley Trail will consist of 10.2-miles of paved pathway and connect to the Brockway Summit.
