Just a short drive from South Lake Tahoe, you can take in an enjoyable short hike up to Eagle Falls. The view from the hike is awesome.

Discovered this waterfall on accident and boy were we glad we did! This is easily accessible from the main road. There are hiking/walking trails surrounding it so you can definitely get some amazing photos.

One of the most photographed locations and worth it, one of the most beautiful and tranquil areas I have ever visited. God's presence revealed in nature.
