Update on Marlett Flume trail closures:

Due to Labor Day on September 3 and the Interbike Expo in Reno from September 14-20, we have made some revisions to the Marlette Flume Trail Closure plan:

· Work has shifted from September 3-6 to September 4-7 to allow for Labor Day visitation.

· Out and back traffic to a point just short of the primary work zone will be permitted. This will allow for a couple of miles of scenic riding along the Flume Trail on either side.

· Work will shut down the week of September 17th to allow for a full week of uninterrupted riding during the Interbike Conference. An extra work week will be added from October 8 – 11.

· State Parks staff will work with the Interbike Conference planners to identify any specific planned events that involve the Marlette Flume Trail as a riding resource.

From our friends at LTNSP - Sand Harbor, Spooner Lake, Cave Rock, Van Sickle.

I wanted to let you know that trail crews will begin work on repairing the rock slide on the Flume Trail on August 27, and will conclude on October 4th. A trail closure Monday through Thursday will be necessary. This closure is due to the nature of the work (rock walls and tread construction), steep cross slope and narrow corridor, and crew safety issues. At the end of the work week, the NCC will make every effort to clean up the work site and make it passable for each weekend, Friday through Sunday. State Parks will follow-up soon with a map outlining the closure (Marlette Dam to Tunnel Creek Road) and alternative route (Tahoe Rim Trail/Hobart Road). The map and signage route will be located at:

· Bottom of tunnel creek road (at the gate)
· North end of the Marlette Flume
· South end of the Marlette Flume (Marlette Dam)
· Top of North Canyon Road at Marlette
