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

Great hike.

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

Super hard for novice biker but beautiful and fun. be careful and prepared.

Beautiful easy ride.

Very smooth and well kept trails. Not too much elevation change, so it is an easy going trail.

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

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

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.

Amazing!

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.

Very nice part of the TRT. I started at Spooner Summit and went south. Adding the Kingsbury North to Kingsbury South connector on at the end was a large task due to the incline and by that point my energy had been spent. I took the time to go to the peak of Genoa and also climb around Castle Rock for a great overlook of South Lake Tahoe.

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.

Nice leisurely trail. Easy for kids alike.

Beautiful scenery, easy walk along lake and through wooded areas. Only slight negative is that part of trail is below highway 89 and you can hear some traffic noise but bad. Saw a deer grazing about 30 feet from trail at one point.

We hiked down the main path to the beach. The water is crystal clear and beautiful. There are rocks that we swim out to and jump off of... The water was cool but the sun was warm so we sunned ourselves like lizards

Awesome views and quite the workout.

Nice, easy ride:)
Great for all ages.

beautiful trail!! for those wanting a bit of a challenge you can take the short cuts and avoid the hairpin turns going up or down, there's a slight thin "trail" that guides you through the brush
