Lake Tahoe State Park - Spooner Lake
This hiking trail is known as the world famous ”Flume Trail”. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world to mountain bike. But as a hiker, you’ll hardly notice the bicyclists because this trail is so long and a good portion of the path consists of nice wide fire trails. It starts at Spooner Lake and the entire loop of the Flume Trail is about 25 miles which can satisfy even the most avid hiker. For a shorter hike, try the trail that loops around Spooner Lake. For a longer 10-12 mile out and back hike, start at Spooner Lake and hike up to Marlette Lake. Although there is a rise in elevation, it’s not a rock climbing path as most of this is a fire road trail. Even if you are used to hiking 10 miles, don’t forget about the altitude which will make you tired quicker. Also, do not forget to bring enough water and food. To get to the start of the trail, from South Lake Tahoe, take Hwy 50 towards Nevada (north). Then turn left onto Hwy 28. Follow the signs to the Lake Tahoe State Park and Spooner Lake. Parking for Spooner Lake is on the right. There is a parking fee of approx. $5-7. This includes an extra fee for the pup – but well worth it. From South Lake Tahoe, it’s about a 25-30 minute drive to Spooner Lake. Dogs must be leashed in the park.
