Spooner LakeSpooner Lake is located near the intersection of U.S. Route 50 and State Route 28 at "Spooner Summit." Spooner Lake is popular for picnicking, fishing, and viewing wildlife and wildflowers. The site is also the primary starting point for the Marlette/Hobart Backcountry trails as well as the main vehicle entrance to both areas. Snow Valley Peak may be reached by hiking along North Canyon Creek from Spooner Lake north almost to Marlett Lake and then east to the summit.
Marlette/Hobart BackcountryMiles of hiking and biking trails cover the Marlette/Hobart Backcountry's 13000acre in the Carson Range. Among the most popular trails is the Flume Trail, which offers spectacular views of Lake Tahoe. The area also features a portion of the Tahoe Rim Trail. Marlette Lake and the Hobart Reservoir are popular destinations. These lakes were created to feed the Marlette Lake Water System during the earlier mining and logging industry of the area. Remnants of abandoned mills can still be seen in areas of the park. No vehicle access is permitted in the backcountry. Pedestrian access is gained through the Spooner Lake trail head, the Tahoe Rim Trail, and various other trails starting in Carson City and Incline Village.

  • Lake Tahoe Nevada is a Park maintained by the Nevada State. Public recreation areas on the North east shores of Lake Tahoe are there. In many places, it is high above the shoreline of lake Tahoe.

  • Although I was traveling in the month of May...always be prepared for the unexpected around these parts. As I was crossing over the pass from Nevada to California, we had to stop and buy snow...

  • An absolute gem and great family get away. We biked the East-shore trail path near Incline village all the way down to the beach. The bike ride is fabulous very scenic and worth the mild incline workout. If you are not use to the altitude and or are not comfortable on a bike I suggest you walk it or rent an e-bike. Both options very popular and thus mildly congested at times.
  • Great views of Lake Tahoe here. This is such a beautiful lake to stop and visit. Drove around the lake a few times during our four-day stay and every time the view was amazing!
