The falls were pretty large as we visited in the spring during the snow melt. Beautiful falls that you can explore from both sides and above.

Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the falls up close! There is a restroom and parking lot at the trailhead. Numerous rock stairs up to the falls which you can walk across via a bridge - beautiful views!!

You will hear the sound of waterfalls all along the trail. Those waterfalls are everywhere. They are not large, but the sound they make is an experience on its own.

It was a great hike! A little strenuous but we all did it. Our group were in their 50's, 60's and 70's. It was roughly 1.5 hours up and 45 minutes down.

Great small hike to see Eagle Falls. The falls are really beautiful and the views of Lake Tahoe are a great bonus. Well worth the time to see.

Enjoyed this short hike with our kids and continuing on to see Eagle lake. The trail is well marked, shaded and has a gradual incline.
