What a great hike, loved going thru the forest with the different firs and pines. Ran into some snow and ice, but not that bad. Wild flowers on the lower elevations.

I only hiked 3 miles towards the snow valley peak and will have to return next time to get all the way there but I really enjoyed this trail. Some Carson valley and Lake Tahoe views but mostly trail goes through the forest.

Nice hike but no views of the lake, just a little glimpse of it a couple of times peeking through the trees. Made it to about a 1 1/2 miles away from Snow Valley Peak. All in all about 8 miles R/T

Nice hike on a beautiful blue sky day. The views from the top are worth the trip. Went in on the Rim trail and came out through North Canyon.

Hiking up from Spooner Lake is wooded for a few miles but then opens up for beautiful views of Lake Tahoe. What's nice is that the trail, above treeline, is well maintained. Your eyes are free to wander and gaze at the lake. I only saw one or two other hikers on a beautiful August weekend; lots of horse poop.

Wife and I have done both sides of spooner to marlette lake and to kings bury actually like the view towards kings bury better view of Lake Tahoe not much traffic on either run into horses on the marlette side have to watch for afternoon thunder storms later in the year great snow mobile trails on kings bury side during winter go to the top for spectacular views
