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

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
