This portion of the Tahoe Rim Trail is located near the northeast side of the lake. This trail provides wonderful views of the Carson Valley as well as glimpses of Lake Tahoe along a forested trail. Just before Snow Peak, the trail forks. The left fork leads you down steep switchbacks to the road to Marlette Lake. The right fork eventually leads you to Tunnel Creek Road.
Directions from East shore of Lake Tahoe, Highway 50/28 junction: Take Highway 50 east approximately 1/2 mile from the junction of Highway 50 and 28. Parking is located just beyond the summit along the north side of the highway.
