Beautiful snowshoeing! Kind of wandered until we found the ridge but even so, it was a beautiful hike and totally worth the extra mile or so we added to it. Gorgeous views of Tahoe. Bring bird seed! We had luck and birds ate out of our hands!

Cross country skied to the peak and back in the afternoon. Great trail for skis as it's a very gradual slope.

*distance was more like 6 miles total.
*great views once you get up to the rim trail!
*water in creeks that flow near the trail head bottom for the dogs- creeks were beautiful ice sculptures here in mid november.
*fairly steep initial climbs in trees up to the rim trail. not much abrupt altitude gain after that.
*wonderful hike!!!!

Amazing! Beautiful views the entire way. Steady incline all the way up, but you are stopping to take it all in anyway so you will get plenty of breaks!

Legendary Flume Trail! Take this 1.5 mi, 5 mi, 7 mi all the way up to the entire 15 mi trail. Incredible Lake Tahoe vistas all along the way. Solid vertical climb so you get a great workout in as well. Bring water as it gets hot and dry. Careful of mountain bikers if you’re walking a dog. Enjoy the hike! Enjoy the views!!

Absolutely breathtaking! Highly recommend. Do this hike. Stunning views all the way up and they keep getting better. Steady uphill the whole way, but plenty of rocks to stop and sit and rest as needed. Lots of turnoffs to explore as well. Definitely will go back!

A difficult hike that is worth the steep climb. As other reviews indicate, the trailhead is not marked...there's a small parking area next to the USFS gate. Follow the water tank access road to begin the hike and follow the trail up. Wear high ankle boots as the climb can be loose at times. You will come to a large meadow/ridge line that will take you toward the peak. Look for a cairn to lead you to the final ascent to Rifle. Spectacular views of Tahoe from the top

My cousin and I went on this trail a couple of months back. We drove our car maybe a mile when we realized that there was no trailhead(Only reason for not giving it 5 stars. Need more markers). The climb was steep so I'd definitely rate it hard but the views were beautiful. It took us about 4.5 hours to complete the hike stops and all.

waterfall was gorgeous, hike was up and down so the elevation change was relatively manageable. Not too much traffic or wildlife but theres a decent amount of parking.

Beautiful views! Bit of an incline at the beginning, but the trail levels out. My feet were feeling the hike at the end. The waterfall was lovely.

my pup and i did this hike, definitely not easy but so worth the views at the top. no trail head but reviews before helped in getting there. the one thing i missed was at the top before the peak, theres stacked rocks on your right side that shows the trail to the peak. i missed it and had to back track. was to busy admiring the views i had. the hike for sure gives you a work out, but can't say enough how worth it for the view.

Great hike about 4 hours total. There is no trailhead. You hike along a water tank access road and pick up the trail from there. There are some steep inclines with loose ground so wear shoes with grip. Bring plenty of water. About a third of the way up, there is a beautiful ridge/meadow ride that to the peak.

Love this hike! Even if you only a mild in and back out you’ll love it! Today we went to the top.

Great views, moderate traffic but still enjoyed it. The waterfall at the end was great. Definitely enjoyed the afternoon and would go again. Took a couple hours but wasn’t in a rush, lots of spots for pics!

Seriously great workout. Unfortunately I had my young kids and was not able to head to the top. We also detoured to view incline lake....which was non existent. I may be back tomorrow to conquer the peak.

One of the best hikes I’ve ever been on in Tahoe! Amazing views all the way up, in late October the most BEAUTIFUL fall colors. Definitely constant incline that will get your heart rate up but nothing unreasonable! Loved every second of it and the views at the vista at the top are stunning! Great dog trail too. I went on a Thursday and it was moderately busy near the bottom - I imagine it’s insane on weekends!

Loved this trail easy enough to get a nice 10 mile jog/hike: beautiful views.

This is a beautiful hike, though the trail to the top of the peak is very easy to miss...we did! We hiked around mid morning and there were a lot of dogs on the trail. Many were unleashed.

You won’t regret it. Peaceful and beautiful.

Loved that there was a beautiful view at every turn. Windy and cold as we got higher! Winter is on the way. We caught a beautiful sunset at the Samuel Clemens bench - maybe two miles up? Wide, well-maintained trail.

This was a gorgeous hike in October with the trees changing colors. I would agree with the “moderate” rating Tunnel Creek Trail received as the entire path is uphill but the incline isn’t too severe. Our dog had an awesome time on this hike and I believe the graded trail had something to do with it. However, there is little shade and no water sources for dogs so bring plenty of water. We started hiking a little before 10 so it was pretty quiet on our way up. Traffic increased as we were coming down the trail around noon. There is a $2.00 per person charge to use the trail but it’s worth it because the trail is very well maintained. With an endless supply of stunning views and a solid cardio workout, you can’t go wrong hiking Tunnel Creek Trail.

This is an absolutely beautiful hike which I would strongly recommend doing just before sunrise so you can really enjoy the spectacular views. Takes about an hour to get up and has a decent amount of vertical. This trail is not very well defined so make sure you’re keeping an eye on your GPS. You’re basically following the ridge up to the peak. You’ll know when you’re there

*followed the app directions to this trail, but never found the actual trail.
*on the east side of the road is a trail to incline lake....connects to third creek trail....makes a nice late afternoon fall jaunt.
*plenty of water for the dogs.
*easy, relatively flat.

A little confusing at the start. Think you’re supposed to take the bike path to the left according to the app, but we took the right and took TRT to Galena Falls and then up to Relay the back way which is a great detour anyway. The road to Relay Peak is a large dirt road all the way up and easy to follow. Spectacular views at the top. Took the bike path all the way back out which comes with even more amazing views of Tahoe and the fall foliage. Recommend taking the last mt Rose trail to the left instead of continuing onto the bike path which leads you straight to the highway where we had to walk back up it to the parking lot! 5 stars for the perfect views!

*beginning of trail follows bubbly, gurgle creekside that is wonderful.
*connects up to the incline flume trail where presently there is logging happening.
*plenty of water for the dogs.
*mileage to incline flume trail at highway 431as a turnaround point is about three miles....so 6 total miles for this hike.
*mountain bikers haven, so mind the traffic.
*some terrific views near the top at 1.5 miles and 1.9 miles....a few more too...
*lovely way to go, and shady for a destination on a hot day.

Very well kept trail, beautiful views.

Kept going to the Mt Rose Summit, but the views at Galena falls were nice.
