I had seen these falls once before. That time was in late June. Seeing them in the first week of May with the snow melting was so much batter. I loved them. And it's way less crowded.

Staying in South Lake Tahoe we saw that the first "must see" stop was Emerald Bay and a short hike to Eagle Lake and Eagle Falls. We arrived around 9am and were the second car in the lot. We did the short hike up to...More

We spent a couple of hours hiking Eagle Falls/Loop on a Saturday and while it was busy, it wasn't prohibitive. It's an easy to moderate hike, with well maintained, easily identifiable trails. Lots of places to pull off and enjoy the scenery. It was hot--bring...More

Hiked from the parking area to lower eagle falls and on up to Eagle Lake. About 1 mile in and 1 mile back. The trip is less than 500 feet of elevation change, but, you are climbing nearly the entire way and mostly the trail...More

Definitely get here early! At 9:15 we still got a parking spot right at the trailhead, but by the time we got back from the lake around 11 parking was a zoo! Unless you get lucky and catch someone leaving, you're going to have a...More

Just a short drive from South Lake Tahoe, you can take in an enjoyable short hike up to Eagle Falls. The view from the hike is awesome.

Beautiful hike up through a trail to a scenic lake. Wear a suit and bring towels to jump In the lake. What a breathtaking view!

The hike from the parking area to the falls is only about 1/4 mile. It's uphill, but the trail is well maintained. It's an easy trail for kids, but keep a close watch on them, since there are some drop-offs. The falls are beautiful. There...More

Eagle Falls is spectacular. We got to the trailhead by 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning and were able to find parking in the lot (on a fee free day even), but it filled up soon afterwards. The hike is steep up to the falls....More

Is this trail dog friendly? We're here now (Feb. 2016), and there's not much snow about. Looking for options where we can have our dog accompany us. Thanks.
