We took the hiking trail up to Marlette Lake and it was gorgeous. If you happen to hike here in the Fall you can enjoy the gorgeous foliage of the Aspens. (see photo.) The hike is mainly uphill to Marlette Lake and is about 5 miles that's 10 miles - 15 km round trip from the parking lot The trail... More

My friends and I did not hike the entire trail, but we started at the Incline side and hike almost 5 miles in. One friend has a bad hip and knee but was able to move at a pretty decent pace, so that tells you it is not super strenuous. The climb features a fairly wide, smooth trail. After about... More

I reluctantly accepted the recommendation to hike this 12.9-mile trail. So glad I did. I had nothing to fear. The going was easy, the trail mostly wide and level and clear. The views of the mountains and of Lake Tahoe below, which you see for at least half of the hike, are outstanding. We stopped for a quick dip in... More

We were recommended Flume Trail Mountain Bikes by a local of IV. Their website was very informative, and provided a detail description of what to expect of the Flume Trail. We made a reservation for our bikes (recommended especially on the wknd) and showed up about 30 minutes before the shuttle. We were helped by so many people, everyone was... More

I rode the flume trail after renting a bike from flume trail bikes and getting a shuttle ride from them as well. I also rented a helmet (included in the price). They were fantastic and made the ride possible. Everything is thought of, from the time you rent your bike until you are back at their store to drop it... More

Supposedly one of the top 3 trail rides in the US. This certainly did not disappoint. We book directly through Flume Trail Tahoe dotcom and opted for the uplift service. The staff and facilities were absolutely top notch. The level of detail taken to make sure that the bikes are perfectly set-up and the users are completely trained in how... More

First, if you are not in fantastic-mountain-bike-shape and do not have a GREAT mountain bike, pop the $$ for a bike rental nearby that has an adjustable seat and appropriate gearing for uphill, some sandy parts and a fast downhill. Just. Do. It. Second, you are in altitude (7,000-8,000 feet) and you will be going UP if you access this... More

Shuttle service is very reliable, we got great and well maintained bikes. Ride requires initially a good climb, partially on sand. Gets hot around noon, but is well worth the effort. Once being up with a few exceptions it gets only back down to the lake. Views are gorgeous. Trail is pretty easy, was totally ok with my son of... More

Take the shuttle service from the bike rental at the end of the trail. Enjoy wonderful views over lake tahoe. End with a snack and a mango smoothie at the bike rental place and then go take a swim. The ride takes about 3.5 hours and is by no means hard.

We do the ride every year. Love the shuttle and bike rental service though now as we are coming from New Jersey. Very easy to set up the reservation and shuttle over to Spooner. Bathrooms and a cafe next to the shop. The bikes are always good quality. The hill is really hard and a test of fitness but that... More
