Great winter trail for snowshoeing. Incredible views and can get some very deep powder.

Great hike for little ones. Walked along the little river the entire time with our 1.5yr old and our small dog.

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.

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.

We will be back in spring! Don’t forget your goggles if you go in winter:) great hike for Thanksgiving Day, we brought snow shoes in with us. Great location, well marked, super wide trail :)

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!

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

Make sure you recognize the elevation gain!! It’s almost straight up the whole way! Bring good shoes and lots of water. The view is absolutely worth it and the way back is easy.

Great area. I went counter-clockwise and the South side of the loop was incredibly difficult to keep track of. Had to look for the trail constantly but the lakes are beautiful!

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 for families, just enough of a grade to make it a little bit of a workout, with a great reward at the top.

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

We loved this hike! Even in off season it can get busy after 10am, so start around 9.

If you’re athletic, it will take 2-3 hours.

The trails are not marked well around the lakes, so be prepared to wander around there a bit.

easily accessible

I think we might have done a different trail when we got to the trailhead lol. We followed the trail that leads east. Nonetheless, it was BEAUTIFUL and there was no one else there on a Tuesday at about noon! Perfect hike weather for us in November.

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

Great hike with beautiful scenery

waterfall was gorgeous, hike was up and down so the elevation change was relatively manageable. Not too much traffic or wildlife but theres a decent amount of parking.

Nice easy hike with some great views. Parking can be tricky so get here early when you can. Definitely steep at some points, wear good shoes. Lovely views of the lake.

Relatively easy hike for a group of four. None of us were in the best shape of our lives but the stop at Picnic Rock was well worth the journey.

Climb is up to the lakes only then a cool little loop to see all 5 lakes and all downhill from there. Just pace yourself up, and this will be a very nice outing-loop the lakes- and down. As others stated, follow your map on the app around the lakes. Not super defined, but not hard to adjust and figure out either. Have fun!
