“Falls were OK, but the hike to the lake was better!”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 via mobile

We thought the falls were just ok. Definitely worth a stop and picture taking, but take the hike up to the lake and that was much more rewarding and beautiful! Parking will be scarce on the weekends.

“Wonderful View and Scenery”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

The view alone is worth the drive. We walked down to the shallow pools and got an up-close view of the falls cascading into Emerald Bay. A must see in Tahoe.

“Beautiful-timeless”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

Eagle falls is as beautiful today as it was 30 years ago...the hike to the upper falls is steep but the trail is good and it is not long. You can continue on to Eagle lake which is a beautiful picnic spot. For the more adventures you can keep going up into the desolation wilderness. A nice view of the lower falls is just a walk across the HWY from the parking area...well worth a visit and a gorgeous view of Emerald bay. From the same paeking area you can hike down to vikingsholm and the cove at emerald bay.

“nice easy hike to the upper falls”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

the falls are dry now but the 30 minutes hike in the round way is nice view of lake tahoe from above. there is a sign that says you shold pay for parking but there is nowhere to do that. there is not much parking so you should wait for someone else to leave.
