Eagle Trail is labeled as difficult, but its not really. The footing is just tricky in many places because of rocks and tree roots, but using a hiking stick or two helps a lot. It is also steep and narrow, but if you go when the ground is dry and you take your time, its not hard. It's fun and... More

The trail is solidly snow covered, but you still get a great view of the nearby islands and a nice workout

This trail was labeled as difficult. My boyfriend who doesn't do any type of exercising did fine. Although I wouldn't recommend for small children. There was some climbing on rocks and roots that got tricky! The trail had great views of the lake, led us to a lookout point, a stone beach and along some rock cliffs. I was very... More

Even though this trail is rated difficult, I think most people can do it. Just take your time and be sure of your footing as the trail, in several places, is rocky and rooty. I saw some people using walking sticks as an aid for stability. I enjoyed the white cedar and birch trees. The cedars grow in the most... More

Eagle Trail is one of many trails in Peninsula State Park. The are many miles of trails within the park offering varying levels of difficulty. Most are easy to moderate difficulty. This was one of the more difficult trails in Peninsula State Park. It is marked as difficult. Rocky, lots of tree roots and steep at points, but well worth... More

This trail is diverse, with open spaces, trees, wild raspberries, thimble berries, wild flowers, rock formations, caves, long expanses of beach! The difficulty rating is not so much exertion or energy levels required so much as footing and attention to the trail which is required to navigate it safely. NEVER take this trail if there has been a recent hard... More

We really enjoyed this trail. It may be a close second to our favorite Wisconsin State Park, with Wild Cat State Park along the Kickapoo River winning that honor. The park has this labeled as a "difficult" trail. Exertion wise, it's not hard if you do a moderate amount of hiking. However, you will have to watch your feet a... More

Great trail. We took our two little dogs along. Very scenic and rocky. I would not do it in the rain.

Love this hike. Have for years. Views r beautiful. Walk it fast n u have a work out. Confusing for newbies as no one knows where some of the trail heads are. Little kids need assistance and have seen plenty of meltdowns over the years but we always did this as a family hike.

We went specifically to this park for this trail. It was not as difficult as I expected - lots of rocky areas and roots but still easy to manage. It rained while we were half way through so our hike was rushed. Wonderful way to spend a few hours though.
