Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
Starting the Tahoe Rim Trail from Tahoe Meadows was nice.  The trail was not tight single track due to heavy use, but it was nice.  The climbs were not bad.  The views were excellent.  There are some sandy sections, but when we rode it in late July everything was in pretty good shape. This was a great ride until we started descending the Flume Trail.  The Flume Trail is really just like riding down an old sandy railroad grade. It had good views, but was crowded and extremely boring. I will not be doing the Flume again.  I would rather ride the Tahoe Rim Section as an out and back and save the shuttle.
Would you ride again?
Yes to the Tahoe Rim Section and No to the Flume Trail Section
Any suggestions?
Pass on the Marlette Flume trail and just ride the Tahoe Rim Trail section as an out and back.
