    Echo Lakes are a glacially formed pair of lakes 10 miles south of Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The area offers a variety of outdoor activities including boating, hiking, fishing, and camping. Many different hikes can be taken from this trailhead, including day hikes and access to Desolation Wilderness (permit required). Read more…

    A boat taxi operated in the summer by Echo Lakes Resort cuts three miles off your trip. A nominal fee is charged for this service. Contact the Echo Lakes Chalet for more information: (530) 659-7207.

    Directions to the trailhead: Take Highway 50 to Echo Summit and turn onto Johnson Pass Road. Stay left and the road will lead you to the parking area by Lower Echo Lake.
