Easy hike with beautiful lake views. Sacredness abounds.

This is not really a trail but a paved road. It was pretty busy with car traffic. Might be a better hike in the winter.

Hiked this trail many times years ago from the southern end of Fallen Leaf Lake and up to the southernmost Angora Lake. It's a bit of a climb, but I much prefer it to driving in, and Angora Lakes make it all cliff-jumping in the Tahoe area!!

This is a beautiful trail, nicely paved fire road, so no uneven terrain. The first 1.8 miles in are uphill and could be a bit brutal to those who aren't accustomed to the climb and elevation. It flattens out for a bit at the fire lookout so you can catch your breath and recharge. The next 2 miles are an easy up and down, and lead you to two lakes so very worth the hike. The best news is that the 4 miles back are mostly downhill and its glorious after the uphill trek in. A bit icy in the winter, we just went today, careful not to slip. The frozen lakes were so beautiful and perfect for your daring boyfriend to slide across, :). Enjoy!
