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

The trail is moderate and a beautiful hike. There is a pond with a few private cabins after about 1 mile. Then, right after that is the first lake and then the main lake is only 1/4 mile further on. The scenery is wonderful and at the main lake there are paddle boats, canoes, etc to rent. You can jump... More

Decided to check out Angora Lakes with our little one since the reviews made it seem like a beautiful, short, and not too difficult hike. My new criteria since I am carrying him! I brought my GPS watch since I wasn't clear on the distance. To get to both lakes, I logged 1.9 miles roundtrip. Definitely worth the hike; it... More

We thought we could go at any time of year, as is generally the case for hikes. While we were technically able to go, we encountered a few issues because the resort was closed for the season. First, the road to it was closed. So we had to park on the road near the entrance and walk in, which ended... More
