Nice easy walk even in snow with beautiful views!

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 simple walk w the dog! Beautiful scenery.

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

15 minutes to get to the top, found parking easy on a Tuesday afternoon. A lot of small families and people younger than 5. Great lunch spot

This trail was a short drive from South Lake. While parking is limited, you can park at the base of the trail. The trail was easy enough for my four year old to finish and short enough that snacks weren’t required.
The view was breathtaking.

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

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

Amazing views of Lake Tahoe if you take the trail to top of Eagle Rock

Super easy and short. Amazing view. Great cell service, sat in a rock and caught up on office work while overlooking the lake.

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!

Beautiful lake, fairly easy hike. The falls were dry so not much to see. Pleasant place to stop for lunch.

Great hike and lunch spot at lake.

Trail was clearly marked wide and easy to walk, great for the whole family! Beautiful view of The lake.There is a rock climb at the top if you want the best views, well worth the effort!!

The lake is breathtaking! The only caveat was that the hike is short but you can add on, and the crowds.

While there are no guarantees that you'll see bears, this is the one trail in my life where I have seen more bears than any other place.
Every October people flock here to see the salmon run, with hundreds of fish in certain spots, and the potential to see black bears enjoying their autumn buffet.
We came on October 13th this year, but were a little dissappointed there were few fish. It is usually the middle of October. Maybe we were too early.
Either way, this is a fun family activity, with the trail to Baldwin and Kiva Beaches, along with the rainbow loop seeing the cool autumn sun shining through the yellow aspens.
This year, the aquarium was closed for construction.
The trail is easy, and can fit handicapped walkers, along with elderly and young children.
Beware of the crowds.

Overall, a must-do activity if you're in South Lake Tahoe.

My first hike EVER! It was tumultuous for me as an amateur but I pressed in and got to the beautiful Eagle Lake and it was totally worth it!!

What a perfect little stretch out of the car. just a decent pair of shoes you don't mind getting very dusty. find a spot to park and you only have a short jaunt to the top to take in some fabulous views! due to extreme crowds of tourists, soak in your view and leave the views and parking to others who want to experience this. photo ops are a must! with that in mind, please be respectful to others trying to get their photos of spectacular Tahoe views without you in them. it seems like you're waiting in line with some being either oblivious or selfish, I too could spend hours soaking it in, but Tahoe tourism is very popular and crowded so patience and respect is a must.

My family with three young children enjoyed this short hike to the top. We kept our toddler in a carrier for most of it to keep him safe. Beautiful views.

This was a lovely dirt trail down to a cute little secluded beach. We only made it down to the chimney beach and back as we had a 5 year old and 3 year old on foot and a 1 year old in a carrier. Would recommend this short portion as family and kid friendly.

We tried to hike a few places on the California side of Lake Tahoe but we couldn’t find parking. This rock and view made our day.
