Look, there are lots and lots of great mounting biking trails around Tahoe. You could easily ride a different great trail every day of the week, and you can certainly pick an easier one. I've ridden around Tahoe a lot, and this is the CLASSIC, EPIC ride, and my go-to ride if I can only do one ride, and I've... More

We had a weeks vacation in South Lake Tahoe and being from Florida, wanted to take advantage of the beautiful October weather. We rode the Vail Pass while in Breckenridge last summer and enjoyed it so much we wanted to do something similar. Well, let me clear up any misconceptions. This ride doesn't compare, it is much more difficult and... More

As part of my recent trip to North California I spent three night in North Lake Tahoe and whilst there took the opportunity to ride The Flume Trail, hired a bike from Flume Trail Bikes at Tunnel Creek, the bike was very well maintained and the staff helpful, took the shuttle to Spooner Lake where after a couple of minutes...

There are four reasons to ride the Flume Trail and rent a bike (if necessary) from Flume Trail Bikes 1. The Flume Trail is an epic ride with spectacular views. It is not super technical or difficult for a "fit" individual. Fit does not mean attending an aerobics class for 30min 3X/week. Please look at You-Tube videos. Also if you're... More

My Husband and I decided to do this based on a positive review in the tourism magazine we found in our hotel room. We had no idea our little "bike ride" would be that challenging. I'd consider myself a novice mountain biker, even though I frequently ride my bike around town. All reviews are accurate that the first 1/3 is... More

The views are spectacular on this trail! We brought our MTBs to travel it. The first 4miles are a hard uphill climb. I recommend going when it is early. We didn't and suffered in the heat! However once you get to the top you forget the climb because it is so beautiful! Be careful for hikers, blind corner, and death... More

Don't underestimate the energy it will require to get past the 4 mile uphill start to this one. ...and the water will go quickly. The view definitely pays off once you get past this hurdle and the rest is gravy! Be prepared for hand cramps from the last 4 miles of braking and remember to use your rear brakes too!... More

This is an absolute breathtaking hike along this trail. It is a very easy hike above the lake. At a. Purple os points it appears that you could jump over the edge and land in the water below. I would go hike this one again!

Unless you are driving up to Tahoe, do not bring a bike, just rent one at Spooner summit or any of the other rental outlets---of which there are many. Heading north, expect a very steep climb up to the Flume Trail then right past the lake, it becomes a single track on the edge of a cliff for about 5... More
