A downhill cruise or a challenging uphill depending on which way you run this dirt road.

Overview

Features: Lake — Views [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

From the Marlette Flume Trail, get ready for a nice downhill as the next three miles feature a 1,500-foot descent on the Tunnel Creek Road. This dirt jeep road will still give you great views of Lake Tahoe before ending at Tunnel Creek Station.

If you decide to run this trail in the other direction, be ready for a steady climb, but you'll be rewarded with views of Lake Tahoe that make it well worth the effort!
