Easy peasy. Beautiful view from atop the tunnel.

I did this hike for my birthday in August. A bit challenging, especially the stone stairs past Upper Eagle falls, but very worth it! To date, this was my favorite hike. I suffer from chronic pain and this hike was a goal of mine and I completed it with just a few resting points. Amazing views!!

Beautiful hike! Very exposed and important to bring sunscreen. Lots of views of the lake. We went during the week in the afternoon and there was barely anyone else there. Took our dog down to the lake for a swim and didn’t see a soul! Water taxi no longer running for the season. But it’s a pretty easy hike with slow elevation gains.

This is a challenging trail. Spend time on a good stair climber if you’re over 50.

Nice hike and great views. My maps cut out and using the trail markers was a bit confusing at one point.

Short, sweet, and easy, but absolutely gorgeous. Haven't done this in a very long time, but miss it terribly.

Great little hike. Great views!

Awesome and easy hike! Views are breath taking. I suggest getting there (if going on the weekends) early in the am between 8-9 am. You’ll beat the rush as anything past 10 am you can forget about finding a parking spot.

Beautiful easy ride.

first 1/4 all stairs so that part is tough but it's an amazing trail the views are spectacular

Amazing views along the entire trail but once you reach the lake it is really something else. Worth every step.

Simple and easy hike with a Great Lake at the end to swim in. Recommend for a relaxed walk.

Beautiful views. Short hike. Not very hard.

Great for dogs! Lots of stairs. ❤️

Heads up. The lake is low so the water taxi will likely be closing before the usual date of Labor Day. Call the Echo Chalet ahead of time if the water taxi option is important to you

Overall nice trail. Some great spots to go swim. Although it is more than moderately trafficked, on a Monday it was a busy trail. I can’t imagine the weekends.

This trail was definitely not easy, not the hardest one but I definitely had to stop to take a break. The lakes are beautiful and totally worth it!

Awesome trail. Quick and easy. You can relax at the pool just past the bridge.

I came across this trail/path on google maps.I decided to check it out on foot. I walked from the Harrah's Hotel to the first beach which was Neveda Beach. It's a very beautiful area to be in. I didn't see much wildlife, but only a few chipmunks. Getting to the beach area walking took a good over a little 1 hour walk to/from hotel. Later on I walked to the parking lot from Kahle Dr and ran from that point all the way to highway 50. You can go past the Nevada Beach and cross the street. Then eventually the trail path ends at highway 50. Round trip is 4 miles. So 2 miles there and 2 miles back. It was hot as it was still the summer time. The first 2 miles was in the sun and middle getting to turn back was all in the shade. If you want to beat the heat, go walking/running mid morning or early morning. This path was also great because there were no crazy motor scooters on path. No cars really around you in the area. There were people on bikes,but I just stayed to the far side to let anyone pass.The bikers go slow when passing. The path is 100% paved and clear path. No tree stumps popping up on trail so you don't fall as some trails can be uneven. I highly recommend using this path either for walking, running or biking. Yes it's super dog friendly. I saw people walking their dogs off leash and on leash as well.

Great trail leads right to the lake!!!

Very easy and also very short. Good for a quick change in scenery if you head north or south on the east side of Lake Tahoe and want to make a quick stop.
