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

It is not easiest hike if you don't hike much, but the 45 min is worth it!! Absolutely beautiful! We brought sandwiches with us and Eagle Lake was the perfect lunch spot.

Simple to get to this one. Emerald Bay is it's home. One of the most photographed places in North America.

Very scenic and relatively easy to navigate. The terrain is well traveled and clearly marked. Eagle Lake is a very cool site.

We stay in Tahoe several times a year and never fail to take the hike from Emerald Bay State Park down to Vikingsholm and the short .3 miles to the lower part of Eagle Creek Falls. The views down the trail to Vikingsholm overlooking Emerald Bay are spectacular. We never fail to feel the awe of our surroundings. After reaching... More
