National Forest Development Road 038
Alpine hiking with views of two lakesHeading from Reno to Tahoe, turn right near the boat launch area before you get to Zephyr Cove. If you come to the cove, you've gone too far. Take in all the fresh alpine air you can on this 12-mile hike to Marlette Lake. Once you arrive at the lake, continue on the path to the left until you reach the dam where you can also catch a glimpse of Lake Tahoe in the distance.
