Geocache Description:

The Great Flume Trail

Perhaps the most stunning and picturesque mountain bike/ski trails in the world. The Flume trail overlooks Lake Tahoe with shockingly beautiful views into Nevada and California.

Your picture should look like something like this web cam photo but, of you. Have fun!

When you arrive at the coordinates, look for the Flume Trail webcam. If you can't find it, demand to know where it is... No, that's not right. If you can't find it, ask. (Important Update: The camera may be temporarily indisposed... simply take your own photo for now.) Position yourself in front and look into the webcam. Wait for the click or beep or light or whatever. Then... see the important word from your sponsor below.

There are at least 40 caches within 6 miles of the Flume Trail.

This great ride begins at the Spooner Lake day use area in the Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park on the east side of Lake Tahoe. Look for signs leading you to the Flume Trail from this parking area via the North Canyon Road. This road runs past the old shepherd's hut, then gives way to rolling uphill terrain through beautiful aspen groves that thrive in the Carson Range on the east side of Lake Tahoe.
