Description

The Marlette Flume Trail boasts some truly spectacular views of Lake Tahoe. A 4.4 mile gentle descent from Lake Marlette to its northern junction with Tunnel Creek Road, this historic trail traverses the hillside weaving around rocks and trees then opening up to expansive views of Lake Tahoe and the mountains beyond. Although the trail feels mostly flat or slightly downhill, do use caution as there are some very steep drop offs and the trail can be very narrow in some sections.
