One of the most popular and easy trails just off the main road circling Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe, Eagle Lake Trail begins in the same location as the shorter and well known trip to Eagle Falls.  Plenty of peaks ringing Lake Tahoe are visible along this trail, and in a short while you reach the destination at Eagle Lake.  Less than two miles roundtrip, this trail is a nice way to spend a few hours away from road traffic on your Lake Tahoe vacation.  However, parking is limited and there is a charge at the trailhead parking spaces, and peak times can be busy.  But compared to many of the other trails that rise to the west off the shores of Lake Tahoe, this one brings quick rewards without tremendous effort.
