An easy hike to a 65-foot cascade.

FATMAP difficulty grade
Cascade Falls is a popular short hike in the Emerald Bay area, located on the southwest corner of Lake Tahoe.
This quick jaunt measures just 1.3 miles round-trip from the Bayview Campground, and with fairly easy hiking the entire way, it's a true crowd-pleaser. The ultimate destination is Cascade Falls itself, which drops 65+ feet over boulders and rocks.
This tumbling cascade causes the water from the stream to mist into the air (especially when it's flowing at a lower water level), providing a surreal view when the sun shines through it.
