This area, located on the west side of Lake Tahoe just west of Emerald Bay offers incredible climbing of all varieties and grades with magnificent views of the nearby lake. Most of the climbing in Eagle Creek is on featured granite, which will cook in the sun on a hot day. It is possible to climb many of the rocks year round when they are dry.
From the South: Head North along highway 89 out of South Lake Tahoe towards Homewood and Tahoe City. Travel about 10 miles to the Eagle Falls Trailhead, which is located alongside the large Emerald Bay. Park along the road for free, or park in the Eagle Lake lot for $2. The walk from the road to the parking lot takes about 45 seconds.
