Granite Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Granite Lake sits in a bowl surrounded by mountains. Maggies Peaks, at over 8,500 feet, tower above the lake. Granite Boulders are scattered along the forested shoreline. Granite Lake is a great spot for picnicking, fishing, and swimming. The hike to the lake offers a postcard perfect view of Emerald Bay, Fannette Island, and Lake Tahoe, 2,000 feet below.
