Overview

 
Approaching the Summit
 
While there are several routes to the summit of this ranked 11er, the result is the same – great hike, wonderful views and a great day. For a little mountain and short hike, this one provides opportunities for route finding, some steep terrain, big vistas and lots of rocks along the way. We did this one in early winter, only about 6 in of snow on the ground, but this is a good year-round hike/snowshoe. Also a great day for the family dogs; ours had fun and were very tired when done. So when you only have a few hours to be in the mountains, Martland is the perfect choice.

Getting There

 
Parking off 44
 
 
The South Slopes
 

There are many routes to the summit of Martland Peak. It is 1.5 miles southeast of Schoolmarm Mountain (its line parent) and 3.7 miles north of US 24. The easiest route starts at Tener Gulch Trailhead and the shortest route starts at the Martland Pass Trailhead (head toward LaSalle Pass).

Red Tape

Located within the Pike National Forest, there are no fees to access this area or to park. However, note that Martland Peak is surrounded to the west, south and southeast by private property. Be mindful of the Forest Service boundary and respect the rights of property owners.

Weather and Seasons

 
Near the Summit
 
The Puma Hills are a year-round mountain range. Relatively low elevations (below timberline) and gentle grades mean minimal avalanche danger. Martland Peak should be accessible from late Spring through Fall. Heavy snows or snowmelt may make CO Rd 44 impassible in Winter and Spring. The aspen that thrive at these middle elevations make Martland Peak and its Puma Hills neighbors delightful destinations in Fall.
