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.

I hiked this from Vikingsholm a few miles down towards DL Bliss and back. It was a bright sunny walk along the edge of a beautiful mountain lake. Despite that I saw no other hikers on the trail. This was an amazing break between days of driving. So peaceful!

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

Great short trail in my stock Gr Cherokee. One tough spot early on that made my wife want to jump out, but coming back and taking a better line made it easy. View was amazing at the top. Definitely will do this trail again.

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.

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.

The road to the trailhead at DL Bliss is closed for the winter but you can park and walk a mile down the road to the Rubicon trailhead. I hiked from DL Bliss past Vikingsholm almost to Eagle Point Campground and back. It was a long hike but not difficult. The views are out of this world! So beautiful, it's hard to describe. Fall leaf colors are bright yellow, and the lake in the morning has a surreal green/blue tinge. Don't miss this one during your next visit to Tahoe!

Great hike and lunch spot at lake.

Great trail. Rocky and flat in the beginning. Beautiful views at Grass Lake. Quick easy hike that one can finish within a few hours.

easy, accessible, rewarding hike around emerald bay; not terribly crowded on a fall weekday with nice fall foliage around the bay
parking/trailhead: dl bliss entrance closed at entrance, could park and walk down to trail but we parked at the other end of emerald bay on the road and didn't pay; $10 at vikingsholm
trail: wilderness highway, well maintained, mostly packed dirt
scenery: beautiful views of the bay and surrounding area, fall colors

Hiked from DL Bliss to Vikingsholm. Very pretty hike! We completed this section in 2 hours.

One of my favorites, a gorgeous hike! We started out at the trailhead at D. L. Bliss, the campground was closed and the parking at the front was full, but we found parking along the street. We only hiked to Vikingsholm and then turned around, next time we’ll continue the hike into Emerald Bay , with stopping to eat our lunch, and taking pictures, it took us 5 Hrs. Next time and that’s if we get an early start because of parking, we might try starting at Vikingsholm, hike into Emerald Bay, back to Vikingsholm, and continue towards D. L. Bliss for a ways, and back to Vikingsholm, it is a long hike , and my husband and I are feeling the soreness the next day, but it’s a good soreness! Love this hike, I highly recommend, especially in October when the crowds were minimal and the aspens scattered randomly along the hike were so beautiful.

The best Fall hike! Bring the family.

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

10-13-18 we started in DL Bliss at the north end of the trail. The Park Ranger and signage stated this trail / campground would close 10-15-18 for the season. The Ranger indicated the trail could still be hiked, but the closest you could park to the trailhead would be just over a mile. There was a $10 fee (1 car, 2 people).

Outstanding hike, but we were time limited and only made it 3.5 miles out before turning around.

Saw many Steller’s Jays and large woodpeckers, not certain on type.

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.
