I just took the mountain bike path all the way up and it was worth it. Fall is all over this trail and it’s beautiful!! It was decently busy with both hikers and mountain bikers. It was a windy day so a bit cold especially at the lake. Took cover by some rocks and ate my lunch on the water and it was perfect! Not a stressful hike, but you get in a great workout. Will take the flume trail next time, I will definitely come back.

Took my pup out for a jaunt. Most of the trail was closed, but it was a pretty walk. Very loud in most places because of highway and helicopters. Trail not marked around the lake, but seems pretty clear at the start. Check the maps up front. Will be back to do surrounding trails!

We tried to hike a few places on the California side of Lake Tahoe but we couldn’t find parking. This rock and view made our day.

Went midweek and only saw a few people. Not too strenuous and a great early fall hike

Easy peasy. Beautiful view from atop the tunnel.

Beautiful easy ride.

Nice walk around the lake. Then go get breakfast in south lake.

Fun short walk around the like....perfect for mountain biking

Nice option for someone in good but not optimal shape. Pretty stretches, good variety, but lacked the spectacular vistas of other hikes in the area. Also, areas were very dusty. On the plus side, the mountain bikers had a separate parallel route, so the trail was very peaceful, though we did encounter a biker breaking the rules by taking the hiking trail. Boo. Marlette Lake was cold but not numbingly so and made for a refreshing swim. You can change in the bathroom by the peninsula. You leave the peace of the trail behind when you get to the lake because all the mountain bikers congregate on the little peninsula for lunch, but it’s lovely.

Such a beautiful and totally worth it hike. We went later in the day and didn’t pass too many people.
Bummer to pay $10 to park, but they do a great job with the trails and facilities.

Great Hike!!

* consistant water for the dogs.
* trail is only for hikers and equestrians. Road that parallels trail ( North Canyon Creek) allows mountain bikes- so trail was lovely and serene.
*purchase of the $10.00 parking pass to spooner lake allows free pass into Tahoe's Sand Harbor Beach Area, which is worth a visit (gorgeous).
* very, very pleasant hike.

amazing view from the top of Cave Rock!!! trail is easy except for climbing the rock at the end of the trail, but the view is well worth the climb!

Great trail for all levels. Being a loop, you can turn around at any time. We took the trail rather than the road, which is much nicer and well maintained. Road is nice too, just be aware of the mountain bikers.

Very easy and also very short. Good for a quick change in scenery if you head north or south on the east side of Lake Tahoe and want to make a quick stop.

Very nice part of the TRT. I started at Spooner Summit and went south. Adding the Kingsbury North to Kingsbury South connector on at the end was a large task due to the incline and by that point my energy had been spent. I took the time to go to the peak of Genoa and also climb around Castle Rock for a great overlook of South Lake Tahoe.

Beautiful scenery, easy walk along lake and through wooded areas. Only slight negative is that part of trail is below highway 89 and you can hear some traffic noise but bad. Saw a deer grazing about 30 feet from trail at one point.

Totally amazing trail! This was our first hike in about 5 years and we are not in the best shape (getting back into hiking is part of our get back into shape plan). This hike is perfect if you want to push it pretty hard but don’t want something crazy hard.

easy peasy but a wonderful walk around the lake. will take all our out of town visitors here.

As you come down the hill on US50 from Carson City toward South Lake Tahoe, stop at Logan Shoals Vista for a short paved walk to some nice views. We explored around the rocks and took the steep trail down to the water [slippery with the sand on the rocks]. We saw paddleboarders out on the water. Nice place to take in an early morning view of the lake.

Awesome views and quite the workout.

As you go over the last knoll and see Marlotte Lake for the first time, you realize it was worth every step of the way. Great workout too.
