The first mile descends through mixed Douglas fir and subalpine forest to the stream ford and then switches back, up for 0.75 miles and begins traveling above Martin Creek. At 4 miles, the Martin Lake Trail goes off to the right. The route continues through subalpine forest to about 7,000 feet. It then enters an open meadow basin with scattered trees below Martin Peak. Still gaining elevation to 7,220 feet, the trail crosses the divide between Martin Creek and Foggy Dew Creek.

Just beyond the high ground, the Cooney Lake Trail #434 is off to the right. Then the trail descends through scattered trees and exposed rock and boulders, eventually into dense subalpine forest to the junction with the Foggy Dew Trail. On the Foggy Dew Trail it's another 5 miles to the Foggy Dew trailhead.

Area snow covered November into June.

Mosquitoes are ferocious in this area until August. Feel free to try the natural repellents, and avoid drinking carbonated drinks prior to riding, but Deet 100 may be the only protection from 'the swarm'.
