Echo Lakes are a glacially formed pair of lakes, cradled in a serene granite setting 10 miles southwest of Lake Tahoe virtually hidden at 7,252′.

Upper and Lower Echo Lakes are connected by a narrow channel which is passable by boat only during high-water conditions which can cut down your hiking time into Desolation Wilderness along the joint Tahoe Rim Trail/Pacific Crest Trail.

To keep the waters pristine, you must be a Tahoe Keeper if you plan to paddle or boat on the lake.  Clean, Drain, and Dry to prevent aquatic invasive species.
