Tahoe Map

Easy snow-covered road for snowshoeing or XC skiing. Gorgeous view of Fallen Leaf lake and Mt Tallac. But BEWARE there is no good place to park. CHP was giving tickets and towing all the cars on the road.

Super short but with some good ups.. especially in the snow. It seems fairly popular on the weekends but not obnoxious. The lake is frozen - people were walking all the way out to the island with no issue today.

Completed on 1/11/18. This hike was definetly a low-effort, high-reward kind of trek. There were a ton of incredible views, from Lake Tahoe to mountain peaks to frozen Eagle Lake. A little sketchy in a couple of spots, but definitely doable with some snowshoes and poles. Highly suggested! Didn't see anyone on the way up and only a few hikers on the way down.

Great for snowshoeing! We got lucky and were able to follow the tracks of someone who knew where’s they were going. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have found our way. There are not a lot of trail markers and after fresh snow, no sign of a path. Stunning views!

really beautiful in the winter, we started it too late in the day to make the meadow but will be back

I just hiked this one today (12/29/18) and really enjoyed it. Beautiful views.The lake was frozen over so plenty of hikers walked out onto it. Very cool. Some parts of the trail were really icy and can be tough to hike on. I saw plenty of people slip and a few younger kids and older adults had difficulty with icy steps.

Great scenery!

An easy hike with amazing view.

Amazing view of the frozen lake!! Our first Christmas Eve hike

it was a great snowy winterland. it was a wonderful trek and not to long. it is also pretty well marked except after the waterfall. then it got tricky so I decided not to continue and headed back down.

Amazing hike!

Great Trail. Fantastic views and fairly well marked, which was surprising given we couldn't seem to find the exact trail when we went up to Castle Rock. We followed the "beaten" path thru the snow, which wasn't what ALLTrails showed. Still loved it. Look forward to doing it again in Spring Thaw weather.

Loved it. Great views. A good amount of uphill climbing on the way up to Eagle Lake but well worth it!

Amazing views all around, watch your step, & keep your kids away from the mountain edge, lots of slippery loose rocks. Parking is sheer luck if you get one. So much beauty here, enjoy!

Great trail for families. Kids loved climbing the rocks. Beautiful views.

5 stars for beautiful family trail but had to only give 3 because waaaay too crowded

Scenic hike with a small waterfall along the way and some very scenic views of the lake. Beautiful colors on the lake as it gets later in the evening.

Awesome hike with 3 kids - 9, 6, and 3. The 2.7 miles was just a loud perfect. They only broke down around 2.5 miles.

Nice, slow climb for about an hour. It’s not too challenging, but it makes you breathe hard. Well maintained trail and beautiful views of the lake and South Shore. Mountain bikers flying down the hill are dangerous and a nuisance what with the dogs on the trail. Be prepared to pull your dog off the trail in a heartbeat. It’s not exactly relaxing.

great view, kids and dog friendly, the lake is an amazing meditation place

Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe. A nice waterfall with ice on the edges of the stream. Not a lot of wildlife. Annoying mountain bikers for whom you have to step off the trail. It seemed possible to take the Tahoe Rim Trail south to the Gondola and then ride it down, but we didn't attempt it.

It wonderful trail. Took us about 45 mins walk wonderful view the lake

Hiked to Grass Lake. Quiet trail - only saw a few other hikers on the path. Extremely rocky which can slow the pace. Definitely recommend keep the map with you because the trail can be a little hard to follow at times. Grass Lake was peaceful - light breeze but relaxing.

Beautiful views

Like previously stated the end was anticlimactic. It ends at a fork in the road. However, there was nice views.

gorgeous hike and the lake is amazing! might have been because I went on a Saturday, but it was incredibly crowded all the way up and down. Still a good one!

Really beautiful. Not too busy, lots of friendly people on the trail. The end was a bit anticlimactic in my opinion because it didn’t offer as beautiful views as the earlier part of the trail. Lovely hike though.
