Tough 3 mile climb from tunnel creek but absolutely beautiful and breath taking views all the way to spooner and past Marlette. Bring lots of water on hot days, pack a snack and plan to take a dip in Marlette. One of my favourite trails in Tahoe.
Be careful on narrow path along cliff edges, MTB tend to ride like crazy people. Only room for one bike at a time. Me and my daughter almost got run over by some speed bikers on very narrow part overlooking sand harbor.

Ran the trail yesterday. Thought it would be busy due to the holiday weekend but it wasn't crowded. Snow is off the trail near Marlette lake now.

Starts with steep climb but it's worth the effort. Beautiful views of the lake with some narrow nerve testing parts

First 3.5 miles is a big up hill. But the ride down was a blast.

Loved it!! Still a lot of snow to trek through 5/13/16. The Flume Trail was 95% rideable. It's going to take a couple weeks for the snow to melt away around the lake area.
