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.

This is an easy snowshoe trek from the Sno-Park lot to Lower Echo. We also shoed across the length of Lower Echo. Powder is deep in spots, and the lake is mostly frozen. Absolutely enchanting. Such a gorgeous hike. Today’s weather was terrific, along with ideal road conditions.

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.

Amazing views! Uphill all the way there but downhill all the way back. There are historical signs to read and bench’s to rest on... even a picnic table.

nice day hike, good views

An easy trail with great views that is perfect for an evening after work!

A beautiful hike/snowshoe with plenty of options! Sunrise on the meadow and sunset on the ridge make it that much better...

Great for sunrises over Crystal Bay and for when family visits. Interesting historical information makes it a more engaging trail.

Great for an evening after work, or for a more relaxing afternoon. Nice place to swim and snorkel at the bottom!

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.

Awesome, short hike with great views. There was a lot of packed snow on the route, but it is paved the whole way. Wasn't crowded when we went, and there was plenty of parking along the street (before the gate).

Fantastic hike during the winter months. A little bit of everything. Great views, rock climb, and then a winter trail through the woods. Not to hard for the average Joe

Great walk with the dogs. Went in December. So little snow.

Great trail. Ran this November 10th at sunrise

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.

Went up yesterday & it was very snowy!! Totally beautiful though maybe not all cars could make it on the snow covered road to get to the lake.

It was a beautiful and fun easy hike. It has great views of the lake. if you are short on time and want a beautiful hike this is the one. you first walk through the trees then eventually along the mountain. Mid hike it gets rocky so just be aware of your stepping. We went Thanksgiving weekend and the river was flowing but just not at full capacity. I would want to do this hike again in the Spring to see the river when the snow melts. but overall it was a beautiful hike!

Amazing hike!

Good walk for children. It is uphill, but doable for our 7- and 4-year olds. The view of Lake Tahoe once you are up the hill is spectacular. It is paved all the way.

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!

This is a wonderful easy hike that is easy to access. Getting to the falls is pretty easy until you get very close, then the trail becomes a little unclear. Even so, just keep going straight and you will see where the falls are. Right now the water is barely moving. Would love to come back and check this out after a snow melt!

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!

Beautiful lakes; nice easy to follow trail; interesting granite formation; only thing missing is a waterfall

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