Geocache Description:

The Hike, Bike or Snowshoe to Marlette Lake is one of my Year Round Favorites.  Once there - this is an Easy Cache to grab so you can sit and enjoy the view.

You can park in the Nevada State Park for the Spooner Backcountry off Hwy 28.  Leaving from the parking area, follow the signs for Marlette Lake or Flume Trail. The trail is actually a dirt road called North Canyon Rd, which is closed to all motor vehicles. You will be sharing the trail with mountain bikes, however, as this is the start to the famous "Flume Trail" mountain bike ride. But, the road is wide enough for the bikers to pass well away from the hikers. There is also a hiker only path if you choose to take it. The road climbs steadily as it winds its way up North Canyon. Along the way, you will pass fir, pine, and aspen forests whose leaves, in the fall are ablaze in yellow and orange. Early October is my favorite time to hike/bike North Canyon Rd.    Continuing up the path, the climbing gets steeper until you top out on a saddle overlooking Marlette Lake. The trail leads down to the lake where you can enjoy the beauty and quiet of a high-mountain lake. Marlette Lake is 10 miles round trip and includes 1150' of elevation gain.
