Cascade Lake sits beside Lake Tahoe’s Emerald Bay.
Trailheads leave from Emerald Bay and lead to Cascade Falls and three high country lakes, Snow Lake, Azure, and Kalmia. Good fishing. Trails are not well worn or marked and you can usually count on making camp by early afternoon. A topo is highly recommended even if you’ve been there before.
After more snow melts and the streams and waterfalls subside, I will post more. This is one of my favorite hikes around Tahoe but it’s just a little early. We’re still skiing!
