Easy hike, great payoff.

My family has been visiting Upper Angora Lake for nearly 20 years. The forest service road that climbs above Fallen Leak Lake is very bumpy at the start but smooths out. We have... read more

This isn't a hike to a pristine alpine lake. It's a long'ish walk to a small resort set in a gorgeous location. If you're loaded up with beach chairs, floaties and coolers then the road/trail up to the lakes from the parking would be draining. If you're looking for a hike, then you can go down to Fallen Leaf Lake... More

My family has been visiting Upper Angora Lake for nearly 20 years. The forest service road that climbs above Fallen Leak Lake is very bumpy at the start but smooths out. We have driven it with a Prius as well as SUVs. Both types of cars are fine but one may appreciate the extra clearance for the beginning. The view... More

Stunning! Best hike of our week in Tahoe. We arrived early and stayed all day. 1/2 mile hike from parking lot to beach. Need $7 park. They have lunch and other snacks up at the resort. Don't miss this!

Hiked in the winter, had a hard time finding the trail head, so we hiked along the road, until we entered a residential area that had many posted signs "Private property". Beautiful lake, just make sure you find the trailhead.

Co-worker told me about this place- you can drive most of the way, and it's only a 0.6 mile hike to the lake/resort. Probably because of this, the place can get a little crowded, so plan to go early (the parking lots will fill). Bring $7 cash for self-serve parking fees. The hike is relatively easy for both young and... More

I visited the Angora Lakes Resort today. The lake was quaint and beautiful. The staff at the resort desk was very nice. For lunch the turkey humus and world famous lemonade were delicious! Great meal after a hike! :)

Have been coming to Angora Lake for quite a while - 60 years and thank God it remains the same. Truly carved from Heaven and if you arrive like I did on a weekday in October - you won't find a soul. Absolutely quiet, serene and peaceful. There are so many special destinations to experience around Lake Tahoe - I... More

We loved our hike to the Angora lakes. The hike is very manageable, somewhat of a climb, mostly because of the altitude, and just a bit over a mile round trip. The scenery is spectacular and the destination at the beach is hard to beat. We had sandwiches from the cabin and lemonade. Both we very good. This is a... More

While looking for something to fill an afternoon, we were advised to check out Angora Lakes. Only 20 minutes or so from South Lake Tahoe, this is a MUST for beauty and outdoor lovers. The drive may be a little scary for some as the last 1/2 mile is atop the Angora Ridge and is one lane with sheer drop-offs... More

Not too difficult and there's a a reward (lemonade) at the end. This was a lovely short hike, with views of 2 lakes, the top lake being accessible for swimming.
