Eagle Falls and Eagle Lake are relative short trails off Highway 89 less than 10 miles north of South Lake Tahoe. Although the waterfall is just a trickle of water, the area is quite pretty. Jugged mountain peaks, large rocks of different shapes, and a cute lake make the place nice for hiking and picnicking.
