Lake Tahoe is borders to California and Nevada state in USA.
Day1 : Eagle Falls :
We started our day around 10:00 AM from Reno,NV. The drive takes about 1hr 30mins to reach the Bay View Campground, CA (Lake Tahoe). There is a mandatory parking ticket to park the car in parking lot, so we parked outside the road little bit far from the picnic area and walked to upper Eagle falls. The hike up took about 45 minutes to go up to the falls. They were breathtaking. As we went up to the to the falls, we saw a beautiful view of lake Tahoe. It was so serene. The color of the lake was very beautiful.It was a deep, pacific blue. Visit http://www.tahoeactivities.com/eagle-falls-hiking-trail/ for more info.
We hiked from Eagle falls to the upper eagle lake. The hike was not difficult, but with the kids, it took about an hour. We had a lot of fun climbing up the rocks. My son specifically loved it. We swam in the lake for a while. The water was pretty cold, so I would recommend going in the summertime. We stayed there for a little while, and the kids really enjoyed it. After that, we began to hike back to Eagle falls.
We walked to lower eagle falls to see the lower falls. These falls were beautiful too. There were actually people that went down to the bottom of the falls and rafted and swam, but we didn’t.
Day2 : Cascade waterfalls :
We drove to Cascade falls, CA (Lake Tahoe) around 11:00AM. We parked our car in the parking lot and started hiking to reach Cascade Falls. Visit http://www.tahoeactivities.com/cascade-falls-hiking-trail/ for more info. The hike takes about 30 to 45 min. There were a lot of trees and rocks, My kids loved it, and the hike was, of course a must-see sight. It was very relaxing hike.
We enjoyed the breathtaking views of the lake, mountains and pine trees. The Water falls were very beautiful; the creek was filled with a large mass of water. June is the best time to see the water falls. The snow starts melting and creates a beautiful, heavy waterfall and the weather is amazing for hiking too.
We spend like 2 hours around the waterfall. The kids had a lot of fun playing in the creek. They splashed around and were really upset when it was time to leave.
Day3 : Glen Alpine falls
We started driving to Glen Alpine falls around 11:00 AM. The road is a one lane road and it is very narrow. Visit http://www.tahoeactivities.com/glen-alpine-hiking-trail/ for more info. There is no real parking lot, but there is some space to park near the road. The falls are long, wide and beautiful. The creek is beautiful too. The kids enjoyed it a lot.
We walked up to see Lilly Lake. The lake was really magnificent. The walk takes about 15 to 20 mins. The kids had a lot of fun, but it was c0ld. They could barely put a foot in the water.
We came back to the falls and played a lot in the creek. The creek was very beautiful. It was like watching beautiful, glimmering water fun down at a constant rate.
Day4 : Horsetail falls :
We started around 11:00AM to see horsetail falls near South Lake Tahoe. We parked our car and started hiking to see the horsetail falls. First we saw small cute water falls. They are so pretty and the kids played in them for few minutes. It was very fun, according to them.
Then walked few more minutes to see another small falls. These are also pretty, and we really enjoyed them. There were lots of little waterfalls along the hike.
Then we walked for about 2 hours, and finally reached the horsetail falls. But the walk wasn’t boring at all. We enjoyed every second. The creek was very beautiful and the views are magnificent. I can’t describe it in words, but it is a must-see sight.
