The Flume Trail – Lake Tahoe East Shore

A Tahoe classic, with breathtaking views over Lake Tahoe’s Eastern Shore. See for yourself why this trail is so frequently photographed for magazines. Relatively smooth trail, fun for intermediate riders and beginners ready for a strenuous ride. Professional shuttle services available, or consider including the Tahoe Rim Trail to make it a loop ride back to your car or as an out and back going both directions on the Flume trail. Another option includes starting at Mount Rose Summit at the Tahoe Meadows trailhead and riding down to the Flume Trail.

The trail itself is very easy to ride (barring one mandatory walk-a-bike section), but it is cut out of a very steep hillside and the exposure may be too much for new riders.
