This place is spectacular. It was the perfect place to ask my girlfriend to marry me. The pristine water and the snow top mountains in the background is absolutely breathtaking. The hike to the lake is easy too. Lots of steps but completely bearable. Although your surroundings while getting there are nice, the lake is the true gem. Don't miss... More

The 2 hour round-trip moderate difficulty trail ends at eagle lake. Beautiful, serene, picturesque and quiet. A must for hikers in the area. The trail is marked and unambiguous.

The hike was not bad. I am not a fit person but I made it. The scenery along the way was amazing. You can even see Emerald Bay. The Lake was beautiful; serene, calm and inviting but we did not swim although some people swam that day. We brought sandwiches and fruit with us so we had a picnic there... More

Hiking past Upper Eagle Falls and looking down at Emerald Bay on the way. It is about 1 mile each way, up on the way and down back. Good exercise.

I done this hike in every season. It's only a mile up from the hwy. but you feel it's the top of the world. The trail head is across the hwy. from the falls. If you park out of the parking lot it's free. Take your time, the attitude can get to you and carry water. There are camp sites... More

worth going past the falls to see the lake. very shimmery in late afternoon. It was like watching silver dots sparkle. Moderate hike, so be prepared to step over large rocks and roots

Good luck parking. But this is to be expected in the Tahoe area on a weekend. Had to park about 3/4 mile up the road and walk to the trail head. Pretty good elevation gain from the trail head, lots of stairs. We enjoyed the workout even though the trail is only about 1.5 miles. Worth the effort if not... More
