Absolutely amazing views of the lake. Snow free for 2.75 miles from the cafe, then very deep snow. Made it to TRT with no snow shoes quite easily. The snow is so dense you don't sink.

Going down the Tunnel Creek trail from the Flume Trail was quite an adventure. Views are awesome. At times you are going so fast just bordering on wiping out and then you slow down near the bottom going slower and hit deep sand and wipe out when you don't expect it. If you control your speed going down and recognize that when the trail levels out you will hit sand you should be fine. Highly recommend renting bikes and taking the Flume and Tunnel Creek trails in Tahoe. Great adventure!

This is a wonderful hike. The views of Lake Tahoe and the mountains surrounding Incline Village are amazing. And it was enhanced for us by the timing...a pretty December late afternoon with snow on the peaks above us, finishing with a beautiful sunset. The trail is wide and easy, just relatively steep after an initial gradual incline. Due to our late start, we had to turn around at the picturesque area by the Mark Twain bench. Hopefully someday I will get back to finish it. Park in the lot in front of the Tunnel Creek Cafe.
