The bikes we hired were great and we used the shuttle to be dropped off at the TRT. Even days only for this part. Excellent riding over to join the Flume. Stunning views. Total 25mile ride. Well deserved craft beer at the cafe.

Did this ride again this last weekend (8/16/15). I have been doing this ride since 1987. It's the most scenic Mtn bike ride at Tahoe with killer views from the Flume trail. I take the shuttle from Tunnel Creek to Tahoe Meadows. Then 9 miles of killer single track on the TRT. Then the Flume trail out & back &... More

We hired bikes from Flume trail bikes at the start of the pick up trail. They are knowledgable and make sure you have all you need. They then drop you and your bikes at the start of the actual trail. It is everything everyone tells you - beautiful, exhilarating, rewarding and punishing! The first half mile is misleading and make... More

The bike rental shop and cafe at the base of the Flume Trail exceeded my expectations many times over. Its called Flume Trail Mountain Biking. Amazing food. Great service. Good mountain bikes. Thoughtful direction and advise. It'd sure be nice to get this kind of feeling spending money other places. Most of the trail is free to use. Mountain bike... More

I did this mountain bike ride and the climb is insane! Well worth it though, beautiful views and a fun downhill down the backside!

This is the second year that I have done the Flume Trail. Both times we started from Spooner summit at the parking lot. Last year we did an out and back. This year we went out and then turned right and looped up to the top of Marlette Peak. That is an incredible view. There is some steep climbing so... More

Oh yes, everyone (including me) is doing this ride the wrong way, unless of course punishment is part of the goal. For some people it is, but for me I just wanted a great ride with spectacular scenery. I'm in reasonably good bike-riding shape, but this was literally my second single-track mountain biking experience, so that's the perspective I'm writing... More

My husband and I were in Incline Village for a weekend wedding. After spending one full day driving all the way around the lake (not as fabulous a trip as the visitor center promised), we decided to do something more, well, out-doorsy. We are both 50+, above average fitness, but not experienced mountain bikers. Thought the Flume Trail would be... More

This is a great mountain bike trail. The first part is an old dirt road. There is some serious elevation gain for the first three miles. After that, it is a gradual descent. There is some singletrack which is a little tricky but overall, this trail is fine for beginners. The views are quite amazing. At the end, there is... More
