Hike to Angora Lake

Rate this Adventure 1.2 miles 226 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

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.
