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 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
