This would be an excellent hike in the spring. By Fall there is not enough water to know it is a falls. We had to look at the sign. Certainly the landscape is worth while. Go on past to the Lake and you will not be disappointed

Eagle Falls is right across the street from Emerald Bay. The trail is well groomed (but it is a bit of a climb for those who aren't in the best of health). It's a beautiful hike to Eagle Falls and then on to Eagle Lake. Don't forget your water and picnic, you'll want to spend some time enjoying the magnificent... More

What a great view of Mrs. Knight's Tea House. The lake was so calm and clear the day we were there. Great sights!

Nice little hike into the falls or for a quicker view you can drive and park right at it. The falls are very pretty and just listening to the rush alone drowns out the surrounding noise. Worth a trip

We thought the falls were just ok. Definitely worth a stop and picture taking, but take the hike up to the lake and that was much more rewarding and beautiful! Parking will be scarce on the weekends.

The view alone is worth the drive. We walked down to the shallow pools and got an up-close view of the falls cascading into Emerald Bay. A must see in Tahoe.

Eagle falls is as beautiful today as it was 30 years ago...the hike to the upper falls is steep but the trail is good and it is not long. You can continue on to Eagle lake which is a beautiful picnic spot. For the more adventures you can keep going up into the desolation wilderness. A nice view of the... More

the falls are dry now but the 30 minutes hike in the round way is nice view of lake tahoe from above. there is a sign that says you shold pay for parking but there is nowhere to do that. there is not much parking so you should wait for someone else to leave.

I highly recommend the Eagle Lake hike to almost everyone. My 8 year old daughter completed it with ease. It is moderately taxing. There are some difficult uphill parts on this 2 mile roundtrip but the trail is clearly marked. The trip up will seem longer than detailed on hiking guides. It is well worth it. The views are stunning.... More
