Easy trail. The water is crystal clear, and the scenery is beautiful.

Great mellow trail. Beautiful in late October when the aspens are changing.

Beautiful fall hike, lots of golden leaves, few hikers. Definitely one to do again!

Wow! Fabulous trail ride. A lot of DG and does technical with the large boulders. We are not able to get to Rock Lake. Boulders made it impossible to pass safely with our horses.
My horse did fine without shoes.
Narrow at points with steep drop offs lasting short distances. First time taking my young mare on a more technical ride, she did fine. There is quite a bit of elevation hike, but we stopped and tested as needed. Quite a few hikers, not bad. Parking adequate.

*pretty unpopulated trail in october- YEY!
*last bit of trail is a road that takes you up to the fire lookout station at the top. Views up there are wonderful!
*bring all the water you'll need- there isnt any on the trail.
*gorgeous views in the last mile and a half!

Took my pup out for a jaunt. Most of the trail was closed, but it was a pretty walk. Very loud in most places because of highway and helicopters. Trail not marked around the lake, but seems pretty clear at the start. Check the maps up front. Will be back to do surrounding trails!

It was a pretty easy trail to take and the views at the bottom on the lake are amazing. I went on a Friday and I only came across 5 people the whole time

This was a lovely dirt trail down to a cute little secluded beach. We only made it down to the chimney beach and back as we had a 5 year old and 3 year old on foot and a 1 year old in a carrier. Would recommend this short portion as family and kid friendly.


Absolutely beautiful

Lots of bugs on this trail. They do have educational placards along the way which is nice

Great hike.

piece of cake. good hill to tone your body for beginners. i love it for a great warm up to get you goin

Great views of lake tahoe starting about halfway through the hike most of the way to the top. The jeep trail towards the towers is the way to snow valley peak. Not very many people on the trail. If you go straight past the jeep trail you get a good view of Lake Marlette, with the option to hike an extra mile down to it. Would do it again

Beautiful easy ride.

Nice easy trail, good for a quick trip down to the lake.

Starts off steep, but levels out after about 1/4 mile. Beautiful hiking right on the edge of the lake. Bring a bathing suit.


Great trail, little bit of a challenge since it's a near constant uphill, but it was fun. The views of Slide Mountain are really great, the hiker in front of me saw several bears; a Mom and her Cubs. I later found a still drenched chewed up baseball cap on the trail were the bears were seen at, so definitely keep alert. Not a beginners hike, but if you're physically active you'll be fine.

Nice walk around the lake. Then go get breakfast in south lake.

very cool trail we started at secret cove (nude beach) sweeeeeet ha ha trail runs right along the lake until you come to chimney beach loved it highly recommended. been coming here for years now were locals yeeaaahhhh.

Took this trail today, and despite the haze from the North Fire, it was great as usual. No cell service at the Spooner Summit /TRT parking area, so couldn’t track the hike using the All Trails app.. oh well. After hitting Snow Valley peak, I took the Jeep road down to where it meets the road leading north to Marlette Lake. Went and looked around, and then headed back south on the dirt road towards Spooner. One tip: this was a thirsty hiking day, and 3l in hydration bladder wasn’t gonna do. Where the Jeep road down from the TRT meets with the Marlette Creek dirt road, there is a very clean, fast flowing spring fed creek to refill bottles/hydration bladder. I didn’t die drinking it. You probably won’t either. ;-)
All together this “loop” was 24km. Enjoy!

Fun short walk around the like....perfect for mountain biking


Great day Hike! yes the first 2 miles or so are tough, but take periodic breaks every 15 minutes or so and you'll make it. The trail levels out around 2.5 miles and the rest is really easy going. It took me 2 hours and 1 minute to reach the Resovior, and an hour and 30 minutes to get back without any stops. Overall a very fun hike, I couldn't see many views due to all the smoke but what I saw was nice.

We loved this hike! We took our 4 year old and 1 year old! Beautiful view of the lake and the beach is perfect! Highly recommend, especially for kids!

I found this hike to be a great destination hike. Down hill all the way there and pretty much up hill all the way back. So those with any issues with knees, hips, heart may need to think about this. Moderate is a true rating. Pretty smooth trail as it was an old road. Beautiful destination when you reach the lake.

Very easy and also very short. Good for a quick change in scenery if you head north or south on the east side of Lake Tahoe and want to make a quick stop.

Love love love it!! Hard hike down with the paddle board I would think but next time I might try to bring it.

Really nice and picturesque trail leading to a sheltered cove and several small sand beach areas. It's popular with boaters as well, and we saw the Thunderbird there for an excursion. The beaches, like many around the lake, are much smaller again this year due to the high water levels, but don't let that discourage you. This is an easy down hill hike that will reward you with nice views and beaches, followed by a minor workout on the way back up (depending on how much you carry down). Dog friendly. A little bit crowded as it approached noon and later.
