Gentle beginner trail that meanders at near constant elevation above Incline Village. There are a small handful of short technical or exposed sections, but nothing that can't easily be walked. If you can ride the Marlette Flume trail, you'll be comfortable here. The trail is busy near the Mt. Rose Highway trail-head, so please be courteous.

       I recommend starting from the north, this makes for a great way to access the Marlette Flume Trail. But if you (or those your riding with) don't have a lot of energy, skip the last 0.6 miles where the trail basically becomes a sandy road and looses altitude. Otherwise, connecting to the Marlette Flume Trail via Tunnel Creek Road (which is very sandy) is worth it! I wish there was a connector trail between the two Flume Trails that didn't lose all that altitude via the roads! I appreciate all the hard work that has gone into this trail!!!

       This trail is absolutely stunning. Road it w/ my kids (9 years old) from 431 down to Ponderosa Ranch. We had a blast. Some parts of the trail are a little sandy and there are a couple walking spots (rocks and such) but over all it was the best Tahoe has to offer.

       Fantastic classic Tahoe ride. Also it is an easier way to access the Marlette Flume trail without having to grind up Tunnel creek road or the Spooner climb. Not technical but beautiful and flowy.
