“A fun hike along the top of a glacial moraine with excellent views of Fallen Leaf Lake and the Desolation Wilderness.”— Jon Hart
This trail is the first of a collection of trails being created in the Fallen Leaf/!Tahoe Mountain area that will eventually connect out to Angora Lakes and around much of Fallen Leaf Lake.
This trail hikes well in both directions. It is very rocky and relatively flat, so even if you're hiking "downhill" from Angora Ridge Road to Tahoe Mountain Road with a net elevation loss of about 575 ft., the rocky nature of the trail will keep you working most of the way.
Don't forget to take the time to visit the historic Angora Fire Lookout for an excellent lunch spot with sweeping views on either side of the ridge (turn right on Angora Ridge Road where the trail ends and hike up the road for about 50 yards).
