Route Description for Eagle Lake Trail
The Eagle Lake Trail is a scenic trail that sees little traffic in the summer. It is a flat route that is accessible on foot or bike. You’ll leave the parking area and head south for 5.2 km to the lake. On the way, you will be able to see plenty of greenery, some wildflowers, and possibly wildlife. Many types of birds gather at the lake, so bring some binoculars and a camera on this hike.
