If you hike up here you can have a cold lemonade and look down on both Fallen Leaf Lake and Lake Tahoe. Angora is higher and warmer and it’s easy to rent stand up paddle boards and kayaks. It’s worth the short but steep hike...More
I had memories of angora from my camp days 25 years ago, and since we were visiting Lake Tahoe with the family, I wanted us to go back so I could share the experience w my 1 & 4 year old. After reading reviews, I...More
The road is a bit rough but we did it in a minivan. The parking is $8, but if you have. A national parks pass, it’s free.
It’s a short 3/4 mile hike each way but the lake is secluded and has great cliff jumping...More
It’s a bit challenging to find Angora Lakes - but after going a bit down an narrow unmarked gravel road and then hiking UP a steep path, our family was delighted to find two beautiful mountain lakes - Angora lakes, south of Lake Tahoe. The...More
Wow, wow and more wow. The road to Angora Lakes may feel treacherous to unconfident drivers but it offers up some of the most stellar views I have encountered in all of my travels.
After the exhilarating drive along the ridge road there is a...More

My wife, grown daughter and I visited Lake Tahoe in mid-September. We were looking for an easier hike one morning and the write-ups I saw about Angora Lake made me want to give it a try. You take the road by Fallen Leaf Lake and...More

They have lakeside boulders that patrons jump from, but it's strongly discouraged due to the decent likelihood of injury or death, and the remote location and delay in emergency response. In fact, the day we visited, a note had been left atop the higher point that indicated that someone had died from a jump the night before. There are plenty of other activities to partake in, and some boulders in the lake itself that you can climb up. There are far better ways to go than drowning after breaking your neck in front of a bunch of kids, like old age!
