I enjoyed this leg of my TRT hike. Do bring a spare lip balm for helping the Marlette camp pump work. It was a bugger to get moving. Great cold water. Do include getting to the top of Marlette's Peak. I regret not doing so.

My fiancé and I did the 23 mile from the Meadows to Spooner. It was difficult, but the views were spectacular. It took us about nine hours. We only wished we had done this on an even day when mountain bikers were not allowed on the path. We had to get out of the way every ten minutes or so.

A relative easy hike from Tahoe Meadows to Marlette Lake Campground for an overnight. Day two crosses over Snow Valley Peak -- one of the best places to get a look at Lake Tahoe and the surrounding peaks. This 23-mile trek is a great one-night weekend backpacking trip -- fun for all!

Trailhead starts at Tahoe meadows, then descends with some awesome technical parts. Marlette lake is gorgeous and very empty (you can't take a vehicle to it). North canyon creek road jets down for 8 miles, wide trail all flat, right to spooner. A lot of fun. Spooner is a let down compared to marlette. Real small and a ton of weeds.
