This trail offers awesome views of Lake Tahoe and Marlette Lake. The trail is a moderately steep uphill climb from the lake level up to Marlette Lake, with views of Lake Tahoe and Marlette Lake visible at once from a point high up the trail. It's mostly shaded at the lower elevations, and passes through sugarpine forest, stands of aspen, and even a patch of ferns. About four fifths of the trail is quite obvious, but the last steep descent to Marlette Lake the trail is a little hard to follow. This is a great trail to take in early October, when the aspens on the east side of Marlette Lake are shimmering golden.

The perfect hike. It's probably moderate/hard but the solitude, trail and views make it an easy top 10 for Tahoe. Great for dogs with the stream and lake.
