Super simple hike with an amazing mountain lake at the top.

Great hike. Added the monument climb and got some great views. It was a little icy, but that’s this time of year.

As others have said the route up high meadows fire road is a “slog” unrelenting incline many portions without shade I hike this year round great snowshoeing in the wintertime. I like the ColdCreek route in the summer as it is more interesting and covered by trees

Nice clear trail, just make sure you stay to your left when you enter. There’s a creek and a bit of a view of Lake Tahoe at the end, then walking back you see the lake most of the way.

trail blocked by a fence, not well marked, and worn away

We hiked this today and it was beautiful! Cool on the trail so dress in layers. Not too many people but enough to make it fun! The only bummer is you have to park at the top of the park and hike down to the trail head. Not bad when you are heading out but an uphill trek at the end.

The gorgeous views that are the destination of many hikes are with you the entire time!

Beautiful but went several hundred yards beyond the end of the map trail, as it wasn’t marked.

Did the whole trail today and loved it! Perfect weather and amazing views! Tahoe my ❤️

Long slog up the hill to start and beautiful trail down. Ticked all the boxes for a great hike.

It was amazing views of Lake Tahoe the entire hike! I was constantly stopping to admire nature and was completely enthralled with the experience! I would do it again!

Fantastic - and if it's warm don't forget to take your swimming gear as lots of places along emerald bay to have a dip

Hiked from DL bliss to eagle falls, took the Vikings trail back to emerald Bay parking lot and got a ride back to DL bliss entrance station, then took the lighthouse trail back to the car, what a day, amazing views and saw a lot. start EARLY, we got to the park at 8am and had vista point emerald bay and the park practically to ourselves on a Sunday.

One of my favorite hikes! You are along the lake for most of the hike, and the hike gets low enough at points where you could easily go for a swim (though water was very cold when we went in late September). The trail is mostly flat so hike is not very strenuous (I saw a few kids in it). There is a $10 fee to get in the state park and there is limited parking. The state park also has access to the beach (calawee cove) so you can make a full day of it.

Beautiful views, interesting paths. Very enjoyable

This trail boasts beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and involves fairly easy walking. It took me a little over two hours from the Vikingsholm trailhead to D.L. Bliss.

Went about 6a all the way to Eagles Point. Easy to find parking that early, caught a beautiful sunrise. Not much elevation compared to most hikes in the area. Great places to swim along the way. Catch a tour of Vikingsholm if you can, or take a kayak out to Fannette. Plus the view of lower Eagle falls.
