Description

The Great Flume Ride, located just outside Incline Village, is mountain bike trail suitable for intermediate and advanced level riders in the Tahoe area.

The Great Flume Ride follows the old wooden flume that once carried water to Virginia City. The route becomes technical at times and is at high elevation. A bit of exposure along the way keeps riders on their toes.

Views of the Tahoe Basin become expansive from the Great Flume Ride as the trail climbs up to Marlette Lake. Side spur trails abound and a map can be quite handy when route finding. Riders looking for a longer ride or more challenge can take the extended loop trail around Marlette Peak, which is about 23 miles in length and does not require a car shuttle.

Additional Details:

The Great Flume Ride is multi-use and riders should understand and practice appropriate right of way protocol. Riders should also carry a first aid kit, bike repair kit and extra water and food. This is a higher elevation ride and visitors should be prepared for the possibility of quick changing weather. A map will come in handy due to the number of trails in the area.

Basic Directions

The Great Flume Trail when shuttled is generally ridden from the south to the north. To get to the south trailhead, take Highway 28 South almost to its junction with Highway 50 at Spooner Junction. Turn into Spooner Lake State Park. There is a parking fee for leaving a shuttle here.

To get to the north trailhead, take Highway 28 to Incline Village. Trail ends by Sand Harbor.
