  • WoW! What an epic ending! The reward for such little work was really pleasing! I was in South Tahoe for work. This was a great hike! Parking was tricky when we arrived around 2:00 p.m. We were really ...  more »
  • Eagle Lake is a scenic little lake in the mountains above Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe. The trail continues from the bridge at Eagle Falls and climbs relatively gradually to the lake about a mile farther...  more »
  • If you looking for a beautiful, quiet walk you can visit this Lake. You do have to the Desolation Wilderness in and very rarely is the search for the trail, but the reward is great. In the morning is it still there, but that change around 10 am, so be on time if you only want this little gem for yourself. You reach the Lake after less than an hour and you can visit the Eagle still Falls on the go.

  • I cannot tell you how to live your life, but I can tell you this trail is worth the hike. This trail is worth the $5 parking. Which is cash only btw because there's no ranger on duty if you go early so its an honor system where you fill out a slip and place the money in a safety box. If you don't have the cash its certainly worth the risk to park alongside the road or risk getting a ticket (sans paying the fee). The trail is worth getting lost. Well it's hard to get lost with plenty of signs and paved trails BUT you may feel like the lake doesn't exist. Just follow the signs that mention the lake NOT the loop. Its not a far walk (1.5/2 miles). You may feel like you are getting lost but keep going! Once there the view is straight from a Bob Ross painting, serene and majestic. It's not a heavily populated trail (we went early on Monday morning so that could of been the reason for the emptiness) and it is a great workout. I wouldn't recommend brining small children because there's a bit of climbing and steep hills. It isn't difficult but could be challenging for those with tiny legs. Overall beautiful view, bring a camera and enjoy!
