Mountain Bike the Flume Trail
Lake Tahoe › Flume Trail
Added by Mary Jantsch
This is an incredible 14 mile bike ride through varying landscapes, beginning with beautiful Aspen Groves and ending with sweeping cliff side views of Lake Tahoe.
This trail is an awesome 14-mile one way ride. The ride starts at the Spooner Lake trailhead in the Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park. The first four miles are a beautiful uphill climb through an Aspen Grove with a scenic mountain backdrop. Once you reach Marlette Saddle, you'll head down to Marlette Lake. After a mile and a half, you'll arrive at the awesome Flume Trail.
From hear on out, the trail is pretty flat with incredible views of Lake Tahoe hugging you on the left. Parts of the trail can be quite thin, dropping down to Lake Tahoe, so make sure you look forward every once and a while!
Flume Trail Bikes is a great spot to rent from or, if you have your own bike, hop on their shuttle. They'll drop you off at the Spooner Lake Trailhead and you end back at their bike shop where you can grab a beer to celebrate!
