It's one of those places that doesn't look as good as it really is once you get thereBring plenty of water and swim trunks for a cool dip in the lakeThis is a moderate hike, so know your limits
Although you can drive into the lake itself, this small out-and-back hike from Fallen Leaf Lake will give you more reason to relax in the cool water of Angora Lake once you arrive. This 3.6 mile round-trip hike could best be described as a series of switchbacks with views of Fallen Leaf Lake and Lake Tahoe in the distance. The best way to describe this hike would be to say that it is steep, and on a hot day it will definitely have you craving for an immediate dip into Angora Lake as soon as you reach the time. It starts with a series of switchbacks up the initial hill through some under-kept trails; watch out for bushes sharing the trail with you. Tips: There is a refreshment stand at Angora Lake, and they claim their Lemonade is the best in Tahoe.
