1) If you mean the Marlette-Flume Trail, Lake Tahoe, Nevada, it falls
under the authority of the Nevada State Park.
Nevada State Park: Special Use Permits:
Lake Tahoe-Nevada State Park
P.O. Box 8867
Incline Village, NV 89452
I confirmed this by visiting a Flume Trail mountain bike company website.
"Owned and operated under Special Use Permit from the Nevada State Parks"
2) If you mean the Black Hills National Forest Flume Trail, you would
need to contact the USDA for a Special Use Permit.
Black Hills National Forest: Contacts:
Special Use Permits:
"Contact a Forest Service office and request an application. You will
receive an application, depending upon your requested use."
USDA Forest Service Special Use Forms:
"All proposals for the use of the National Forest under a Special Use
authorization require a pre-application meeting. Contact the
applicable National Forest prior to completing the application form.
This meeting will help develop a mutual understanding of your proposal
and guide the appropriate use of the National Forest prior to the
expenditure of time, resources, or energy on the application."
I hope this helps - if you have any questions or if you have a
different Flume Trail in mind, please post a clarification request
before closing/rating my answer.
