It's one of those places that doesn't look as good as it really is once you get there. Bring plenty of water and swim trunks for a cool dip in the lake. This is a moderate hike, so know your limits.

You can drive to a trailhead 1.2 miles roundtrip to the lake. If you're looking for a longer out-and-back trail, you can head out from Fallen Leaf Lake. On a hot day it will definitely have you craving a dip into Angora Lake as soon as you reach your destination. Tips: There is a refreshment stand at Angora Lake, and they claim their Lemonade is the best in Tahoe.
