    Route Description for Eagle Ridge Trail

    The Eagle Ridge Trail is a difficult hiking route that works its way into the backcountry of Indian Arm Provincial Park and up the slopes of Eagle Mountain. Due to the elevation of the hike, certain times of the year will see the route packed in with snow, making trail conditions difficult to traverse. Make sure to pack proper gear for the conditions, including crampons, microspikes, or snowshoes if need be.

    This trail offers an amazing opportunity to experience sweeping views from Eagle Mountain that stretch west along the North Shore and south across the Metro Vancouver Area. Along the route, you will find great variation in terrain as the trail cuts through a largely wooded area, crossing over mountain streams as it climbs uphill to the many vantage points and small lakes that can be found along the slopes of the mountain.
