This trail is marked "Difficult" for a reason-- but don't let that deter you! Simply be prepared with appropriately sturdy shoes, perhaps some water, and a dose of patience. You'll enjoy the trail's rolling portions and the extremely rocky portions, the woodlands and the cliffs along the lake. In the summertime, be sure to prepare for bugs!

This trail was not as good as we expected. The trail was rated as difficult which it really was not other than all the roots and rocks that were in the trailbed. If you do this trail, I would recommend starting at the Eagle tower and going counter-clockwise until you get past the views of the caves and the lake.... More

I've hiked the Eagle Trail more times than I can count. Even though it's described as a strenuous trail, it's easily hiked by most people. It is steep in a couple spots, and the footing can be wet and a bit uneven, but it's short and rewarding, and the best hike in the park by far. If you're going to... More

We did this trail on Oct. 3rd, 2014 when it was wet with puddles. Just watching your step a bit allowed us to pass just fine. I wore tennis and did not slip once. It is a fabulous trail for a varied terrain and fabulous sites. The tress growing out of the rocks/cliffs were amazing. Take it at your own... More

After visiting Peninsula State Park numerous times, we decided to tackle this trail. It is not very long, but full of roots and rocks. Wear real hiking boots and shoes! You spend lots of time looking down, so it is easy to miss the views!

the caves were nice and worth the walk, but the trail is very rough - rocks on top of tree roots and sometimes you are not walking any anything except roots and rocks. I would not do this trial if there had been a rain recently.

This is a beautiful trail that winds through the woods, down the bluff and along the shore past the famous sea caves (too high for easy access) and back up to the upper forest at Peninsula State Park's Eagle Tower. While this can be a challenging course because of the rocky terrain and steep inclines, it's not terribly difficult -... More

As a hiker I didn't find the trail too difficult. I would say intermediate. Some ups and downs and rocky road. Can finish within 1 hour if you are fast.

Beautiful views of the water and bluffs. Trail is well maintained with clear signage. Bonus: "Difficult" trail rating means it's not well traveled.

It is not a difficult trail, thiugh there are some large rocks to climb over and a fair amount of uneven terrain, but the traim from teh parking lot down and back up can be traveresed in under an hour, but you will probably want to take longer to explor the cliff side caves (not too big but very interesting)...
