The reviews I read made it seem so do-able. If young kids can do it, I thought, so can this 50-plus non-athletic woman! Thinking about the parking hassles, I made it to the area by 8:30 am and parked at the side of the highway...More

This was truly a beautiful hike! I can't say what the loop is like but I would certainly recommend taking the Eagle Lake route to and back instead, when given the choice at the trail's fork. Once you reach Eagle Falls continue over the bridge...More

It was not as easy as the earlier hike this morning, but the steep and flat sections varied the pace. The bridge and falls were scenic, but the reward at the end of the trail at Eagle Lake was beautiful, still nested in big mountains,...More

I was going crazy reading others' reviews when trying to figure out whether I should do this with my 5-year-old. My kid is no hiking prodigy, but he has done some 2-3 mile hikes with hills near our home, so I was willing to give...More

This a must visit when in South Lake Tahoe area and for that reason, it is very crowded. If you want to do a manageable hike with the family, this is a good one. Beware you will not be alone at least up to the...More

This is a great hike with a waterfall along the way and ending at a very nice little alpine lake. The trail is uphill and can be a good workout. You get great views of Tahoe and a perfect little lake for a picnic lunch....More
