A waterfall is a must see while in the Tahoe area and this one is beautiful.

Discovered this waterfall on accident and boy were we glad we did! This is easily accessible from the main road. There are hiking/walking trails surrounding it so you can definitely get some amazing photos.

One of the most photographed locations and worth it, one of the most beautiful and tranquil areas I have ever visited. God's presence revealed in nature.

Not too long a hike and although there weren't really any falls here when we were, the views down to Emerald Bay were amazing.

Located right outside Lake Tahoe this waterfall is a great surprise! Although it is well populated, it is worth the hike. The hike leading to the waterfall is very simple; however, there are a couple amazing alpine lakes to view if you are willing to continue hiking. These hikes are much more strenuous, but again worth it! You do have... More

Eagle Falls is not the highest I've scene, but it is one of the most beautiful. It Cascades down to Emerald Bay, one of the most beautiful little bays in the world. It is at it's peak in the spring and early summer. If you visit the Tahoe area at these times and miss this beautiful falls you have made... More

Love Eagle Falls! We have only done the shorter hike to the bridge and it has been amazing every time. On our recent trip mid September there was sadly no water in the falls but it was still an amazing view. We have hiked this many times and we have taken our small children twice and my parents who are... More

We like to see the falls and it's on the way to Eagle Lake. It was a short hike, climbing a few stairs. But it was disappointing. There's not much water. But what do you expect, California is facing severe drought .

One of the highlights of our trip to Tahoe was the hike down to Vikingsholm and then up to Eagle Falls. Well worth the effort.

This is a very short hike up to the falls...took us maybe 10 minutes. We climbed the stairs to the bridge over the falls too but did not venture on to the lake. Very easy hike to the falls is completely worth the effort though.

I vacation to Lake Tahoe every year for some much-needed R&R time, usually solo since I can really relax and recharge that way. For years, I have been doing the "drive around the lake" and have always stopped at Emerald Bay to take in the magnificent views offered there. On this trip, I pulled over at the Eagle Falls Trailhead... More
