If you every find yourself in South Lake Tahoe, this hike is a must! The trailhead to Eagle falls is located just off Hwy-89 in Emerald Bay California. This hike is fairly short and easy but is full of spectacular views of the falls and Emerald Bay. In 1969 this area was designated as Natural National Landmark because of its incredible panoramic view of the mountains and glacier carved granite. It is very crowded in the summertime by tourist t bringing in many new visitors to Tahoe.
