This is a very short hike up to the falls...took us maybe 10 minutes. We climbed the stairs to the bridge over the falls too but did not venture on to the lake. Very easy hike to the falls is completely worth the effort though.

I vacation to Lake Tahoe every year for some much-needed R&R time, usually solo since I can really relax and recharge that way. For years, I have been doing the "drive around the lake" and have always stopped at Emerald Bay to take in the magnificent views offered there. On this trip, I pulled over at the Eagle Falls Trailhead... More

I did this hike with my friend on December 2014. Initially we only knew about Eagles falls. The falls dis not have much water flow when we visited. When we reach the bridge in front of the falls, people coming down from the lake inspired us to visit the lake. The trail was full of solid ice and people were... More

This is the greatest hike - from Eagle Falls trailhead to Eagle Lake. Gorgeous views and fun hike. Small fee at entrance.

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.
