Revelstoke – Day 3 Martha Sale

Martha Creek descent is accessed from the Sale Forest Service Road. Drive 20km down Hwy 23 past the Martha Creek Provincial Camground and drive 15 km up the road to the Hydro Towers. The last 5km are rough and require a vehicle with good tires and preferably 4 or all wheel drive. There is a winter route and summer route.
The summer route is better for driving.

This is a must do ride in Revy! Support the Revelstoke Cycling Association so they can continue to maintain this trail!

The trail starts in the alpine at 2100m and drops to 650m in 10km exiting on Hwy 23 near the campground. The first section has some pedalling and was rerouted about 4 years ago to create a longer trail and to avoid a really band swampy area.

There are two other sections of the trail that can be accessed lower on the road if the weather doesn’t permit riding from the top or your car can’t make it. Like most alpine trails in this area, the snow usually stays until July. Check Revelstoke Cycling Association Webpage for trail updates!
