Fallen Leaf Lake
Fallen Leaf Lake is located one mile south of Lake Tahoe along Highway 89 on your way to Emerald Bay. The lake and is 2.9 miles long, 0.9 miles wide and 415 feet deep. It was created by 2 huge glaciers that stopped as they were traveling northward toward the Glen Alpine Valley. Had they kept going, Fallen Leaf Lake would have been another bay of Lake Tahoe just like Emerald Bay is now, instead of being it’s own individual entity. There are amazing waterfalls just past the marina that lead to great hiking trails and Desolation. Due to the lack of commercial development, this unique alpine lake has about 40-50 feet of clarity which also makes it a popular fishing area during those Summer months.
