The Vista has an incredible view of Marlette Lake and Lake Tahoe. Quite fun as an out and back from the north to the vista and return to Tunnel Creek, then to Flume going south which can be a quick out and back or on to Chimney Beach descent. From the vista view south is a bit sandy, intersects Marlette Rd.(Forest Service fireroad) which is steep and a bit dull.

      Had to hike over the snow in 4 places. Likely some of the snow will be there until next winter.
