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

I visited the Lake Tahoe area at the end of July with my family. It had been over 10 years since my last visit. Prior to the trip I researched on Trip Advisor some places to visit, hikes and places to eat. The Eagle Lake hike was one that got a good review. For good reason. This was a spectacular... More

This little lake was pretty stunning; there is a bit of a hike to get to it - but on a nice day its no problem at all! As you approach it you sort of get glimpses of it through the boulders and then it reveals itself as you get next to it, it looked amazing.

This is a great hike! A short hike to the falls, then a moderate hike to the lake. Totally beautiful and worth the effort!!

Eagle Lake is truly in the middle of nowhere. You can only get to it on foot (meaning hiking about 1 mile from Eagle Falls Trail-head.) It is so worth the effort. The lake is stunning, extremely an experience to witness.
