A short version of the IV Flume loop. Only 200 feet of elevation change in 6 miles. There are several creek crossings that are moderately challenging boulder hops when the snow melt is high (as it was on June 21, 2017). You can continue on as far along the flume trail as you wish. Dramatic views of Lake Tahoe, truck size hillside boulders.

Fantastic hike!!! Gorgeous views, streams and wildflowers. August is stunning....not nearly as "moderate" as I expected, I would categorize this "easy". We saw a lot of bike riders, everyone was friendly and lots of dogs and some families on this trail. Would do again!!!

Fantastic views of wildflowers in all shapes and colors along the whole trail! (Mid July) Moderately warm day but stayed cool from the mountain breeze. My pup loved crossing through the many creeks to cool off as we hiked.

Awesome trail with lots of varying topography, wildflowers, views of the lake, creeks and fall crossings. The wildflowers were a wonderful surprise. I hike Auburn/Colfax/Forest hill a lot and the flowers there dried from green and brilliant, to dry and brown back in May-June. The late snowmelt at higher altitude keeps the hills green much longer and the air much cooler. It was a great reprieve from the Sac Valley scorch. Lots of bikers though. It gets tiresome standing to the side all the time, but it is their trail too. Lead with love and let them get on by with a smile.It was also cool to see what the ski slopes looked like with no snow. The grasses and flowers where just incredible! Pics don't do it justice. It was a 7 mile round trip hike, but we turned around at the second ski lift. The trail goes all the way back down to the lake I believe.

This trail is pretty casual. You can go for as long as you want and turn it into a loop with the Tahoe rim trail if you're a maniac. I recommend going beyond the end of the AllTrails 'red line' that marks the trail. That's where all the wild flowers are blooming and views of the lake become really clear. You'll like this trail for sure!
