This one’s for you, bikers!
This 13- mile bike ride has an elevation gain of 1,850ft and takes you up the east shore of Lake Tahoe from Spooner Lake to Ponderosa Ranch. This scenic ride offers stunning lake and mountain views along the way. We recommend stopping for lunch at Marlette Lake, which is about 4.5 miles down the trail from Spooner Lake. Marlette Lake is also a good fishing spot, so if you feel so inclined strap a fishing rod to your backpack while biking the flume trail. There is no need for a second car, either! Once you reach Ponderosa Ranch, they have a shuttle service, which will bring you back to your car at Spooner Lake for $15, or $10 if you rent a bike from Flume Trail Bikes.
