"Explore this 6.6-mile hike along Marten Creek following a former railroad bed to an abandoned copper mine. The trail begins directly off the Mountain Loop Highway along Marten Creek. The first mile or so follows the now-abandoned roadbed up through a maturing forest of Douglas fir, cedar, and hemlock. The roadbed is occasionally rocky, but it is wide and generally free of blowdowns. At 2 miles the decaying roadbed becomes more difficult to follow and is washed out in places. The full trek out to the mine may require some bushwhacking and route-finding skills. If you’re looking for a training hike or a quiet snowshoe without a lot of company, the Marten Creek Trail is an excellent choice. Although there is not much in the way of a destination, the first 2 miles of this trail offer forested trails, a roaring creek, some views, and more than a little history." Read more

"Marten Creek Trail is an oft-overlooked route in summer months that is virtually forgotten come winter. That is a blessing to those who know about, and take advantage of, the beauty of this secluded forest valley." Read more
