As being one of the local trail builders on the Incline Flume project, I have helped complete stream crossings and rerouted the blocked sections of trail. As of June 2018 most of the hard work is completed, still much to do with signage and finish work. The trail is a real gem that all ability’s can enjoy, one of the only family rated Trails in the Tahoe basin. Many thanks to all the agency’s, the Forest Service, and groups,The Tahoe Fund and Friends of Incline Trails that made it all possible.

Sand Harbor is just picture perfect as it is, so anything step you take there is just amazing

Gorgeous views!!!

Great trails, lovely scenic views. If you look carefully, you can spot pieces of the old flumes.

Greeen!

Lovely walk along the water with beach access in a couple of places. Beautiful and meditative with benches strategically placed to take in the Lake Tahoe beauty. (We visited in late Fall, during the day on a week day). Looking forward to visiting again.

Beautiful lake access. Off season only $5 for locals.

Good trail.

nice way to spend a few hours outside. Well maintained and fairly level even after going into the forest.

Relatively level trail for this area. Fantastic views. Several crossing trails with unmarked intersections so follow the app's map.

It was an easy hike beautiful views of the lake and in another couple of weeks there wit be some great Fall colors. No complaints just letting you know there are no signs marking this trail and one of the junctions has multiple trails to decipher just be very alert this junction has downhill Mtn bikers clipping along at a pretty good speed here don't forget where you are standing it was just this one spot we crossed paths with downhill riders they don't ride the Incline Flume trail but the cross country Mtn bikers do they are much slower but all were very appreciative and respectful.

Nice flat hike. I’ll be back with my bike next time.
The red line ends at the first ski trail of Diamond Peak.

Easy, gorgeous views. I added on the tyrolean downhill and made it a 10 miler.

This was a super chill trail. I'd rate it an easy because it doesn't really climb noticeably. There were some nice views and a handful of streams to cross. A fairly narrow trail meant we were stepping aside regularly to let bicycles by. All in all it was a nice trail and I plan to return again.

Fantastic hike!!! Gorgeous views, streams and wildflowers. August is stunning....not nearly as "moderate" as I expected, I would categorize this "easy". We saw a lot of bike riders, everyone was friendly and lots of dogs and some families on this trail. Would do again!!!

You have to pay $12 to get into the state park which was a downer!

Fantastic views of wildflowers in all shapes and colors along the whole trail! (Mid July) Moderately warm day but stayed cool from the mountain breeze. My pup loved crossing through the many creeks to cool off as we hiked.

Portions of the trail from Tahoe meadows allow bikes on even days only. However, many parts of the trail are not fit for bikes and needs repair. Also, as of July 24, large portions of the trail are still snow covered making it hard to follow and dangerous. Recommend hiking this trail only!

Awesome trail with lots of varying topography, wildflowers, views of the lake, creeks and fall crossings. The wildflowers were a wonderful surprise. I hike Auburn/Colfax/Forest hill a lot and the flowers there dried from green and brilliant, to dry and brown back in May-June. The late snowmelt at higher altitude keeps the hills green much longer and the air much cooler. It was a great reprieve from the Sac Valley scorch. Lots of bikers though. It gets tiresome standing to the side all the time, but it is their trail too. Lead with love and let them get on by with a smile.It was also cool to see what the ski slopes looked like with no snow. The grasses and flowers where just incredible! Pics don't do it justice. It was a 7 mile round trip hike, but we turned around at the second ski lift. The trail goes all the way back down to the lake I believe.

Great for families with young children, even grandparents. Improved trails with little elevation. Very scenic. Parking is right at trail head. Choice of loops from easy to lite moderate. Short drive from incline village.

Gorgeous place. Best beach I know of in Tahoe. Not really a hike though.

This trail is pretty casual. You can go for as long as you want and turn it into a loop with the Tahoe rim trail if you're a maniac. I recommend going beyond the end of the AllTrails 'red line' that marks the trail. That's where all the wild flowers are blooming and views of the lake become really clear. You'll like this trail for sure!

We started from the Mt Rose Rd on the flume trail. We headed all the way to where it ended via gps. You can follow it the same way back or hook up the Diamond Peak trail. The flume trail was awesome beautiful views of he lake, crossed 5 brooks, flowers, views and it was pretty much shaded.
At the end we thought why not do a loop and connect to the Diamond Peak trail that leads you back to almost where we started on the flume trail.. Big mistake via my phone gps. My map told us to head down the ski run roads into the ski resort parking lot. It was only by mistake that I found a trail leading out of the back.
It was All up hill back to the flume trail. Was not fun
9.5 miles.
We would do he flume trail again for sure

Not an easy trail at all! The map sent us to the bike trail, but the hike is beautiful and great views of the lake.
