Staring at the Fire Station at Fallen Leaf Lake. Hike up to the top of the ridge - about an hour depending on your speed. Be sure to take in the views as you reach the top before dropping down the other side to Angora Lakes parking lot. Another 15 minutes easy uphill to the lakes. The return trip to... More

We drive up to this place. The road to lakes is bit harder to find because I is not marked very well. At the beginning it looks like the road is all dirt, but that is only for to pass the first curve. After that is all paved, but narrow. Make sure you hike up to the 3 lake, there... More

I had not been up to Angora Lakes since I was a teenager forty-five years ago. I've told my wife about it many times. We began at Fallen Leaf Lake and made the climb up to the upper parking lot and then up the limited access road to the lake. I thought that after four decades the trail would be... More

There is an unmarked forestry rim road off Tahoe Mountain Rd that ends in a public parking lot. This lot gives much shorter hike to both Angora Lakes. Small charge to park. It fills up fast so arrival earlier in AM advised. In the summer, the upper lake has small concession selling famous homemade lemonade. Excellent swimming waters, albeit alpine... More

Started at fallen lake and hiked up. Trailhead is unmarked and is between the chapel and the fire station. Hike is moderately strenuous and is quite steep and rocky.

We have been going to Angora for 25 years. You have to know how to get there because there are no signs. It is past Fallen leaf lake campground. turn left instead of right towards towards fallen leaf lake itself. Watch a youtube video for the directions. I used to go as a teen and took my older daughter 10... More

We took the longer hike from Fallen Leaf Lake. Hike is difficult and quite steep. But the views on the hike are breathtaking. You can see Fallen Leaf lake and Lake Tahoe. At then end of the hike you are treated with quiet and relaxing Angora lake. Take a dip in cool waters and then start back on the trail.... More

Awesome family hike to a magical place. Rent a row boat, paddle board and get a lemonade popsicle! Get there early so you can get a parking space! They have a little cafe there with simple sandwiches. Beautiful location...in you are in South Lake Tahoe...it's a must!

We hiked up to the Angora Lakes for a day trip this week and thought it was one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. My three kids, ages 12, 14, and 16, loved it as well. We found parking easy, maybe because it was midweek. Luckily we had $7 in cash, because you have to put your... More

We loved Angora Lakes! For a more challenging hike, we parked by the fire station down at Fallen Leaf Lake and hiked up the trailhead directly behind it. It's like a nice woodsy stair master. If you prefer to have an easy hike (stroll), you can drive up to the Angora Lakes parking lot and it's a short, relatively flat... More
