Martes americana

Marten (also known as the American Marten, American Pine Marten) tracks have five toes aligned in a 1-3-1 pattern and sometimes the smallest toe on the inside of the foot does not show. Due to the fur covering the foot the heel may not leave an impression or the mark may be blurred. The interdigital pad is a chevron.

The marten often gallops, leaving a stride that is approximately 22 inches (55 cm).
