We have made several attempts at Angora Lake. Very small parking lot, and once you are "in" you really don't want to leave. There is a cost for parking, which is well worth the money spent once you catch a view of this glorious spot. Swimming is there for those who brave the cold waters. We kayaked around the lake,...

Park in the parking lot at the base of the trail, don't forget to pay the "iron ranger" for your parking. Then take this short hike, (a little steepish at the beginning), but then it flattens out for the remainder of the hike. When you get to the top, you are treated to a beautiful mountain lake with family swimming,... More

Crowded but a happy, friendly crowd. The "general store" at the big lake has excellent sandwiches and some of the best lemonade I've ever had.

My family and I recently visited the two Angora Lakes for the first time, and it was worth the trip! The Angora Lakes Resort is a privately owned establishment, located approximately 1/2 mile from the southwestern terminus of Angora Ridge Road, where you can find two small parking lots (roughly 30 and 40 cars' capacity, respectively, per my recollection). As... More

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
