Among the most popular trails is the Flume Trail, which offers spectacular views of Lake Tahoe. The area also features a portion of the Tahoe Rim Trail. Marlette Lake and the Hobart Reservoir are popular destinations. These lakes were created to feed the Marlette Lake Water System during the earlier mining and logging industry of the area. Remnants of abandoned mills can still be seen in areas of the park. No vehicle access is permitted in the backcountry. Pedestrian access is gained through the Spooner Lake trail head, the Tahoe Rim Trail, and various other trails starting in Carson City and Incline Village.
