A beautiful trail, watch your feet

We really enjoyed this trail. It is called "difficult" by some, but I would say, only if you are out of shape, not used to walking, or do not have good balance. My sister and I... read more

We really enjoyed this trail. It is called "difficult" by some, but I would say, only if you are out of shape, not used to walking, or do not have good balance. My sister and I are in our 70s and were OK, we saw children as young at 5 bouncing along. There are lots of surface roots and rocks... More

We hiked the Eagle trail starting in the tower parking lot, hiking along the lake shore under the cliffs and climbing to the top and back to the car. Considering the area the state park is in, this is the most difficult trail in the park

All trails in the park and scenic and fun to explore. The views around the trail are breathtaking and enjoyable. As with most of the trails, it could be marked better

Imagine yourself as a settler and you make trails in the woods for hunting and fishing. This trail is so well groomed that you can feel the timeless beauty of the of the woods. The fresh air and the dashing squirrel will make your day and appreciate with a gift it is to have a state park like this one.

I am assuming that the "difficult" rating of this trail has more to do with the footing than actually being strenuous. As other reviewers have noted (and is mentioned in the park map/guide), the trail is rocky and rooty...so keep your eyes on where you're walking. We hiked this one morning and really enjoyed it. Often you are skirting the... More

First and foremost, I wanted to say that the mileage you see listed for this hike many places online is incorrect. Multiple places stated it's a two mile trail. We run a GPS mileage tracker while hiking and from trailhead to trailhead (big loop) was 2.87 miles. So go into this hike prepared to hike almost three miles. We love... More

We hike the trail and it was beautiful and peaceful. Many people were biking and hiking. It took us a couple of hours to complete. The mosquitos were not bad even though most of the trail is in the shade.

The Eagle Trail is a nice hike! It is moderately difficult with uneven footing (lots of rocks and tree roots) and muddy conditions (depending on recent rainfall) but it's beautiful! I love walking along the water and hearing/seeing the waves crash upon the shore. After a quick upwards climb you get to the top of the Eagle tower or terrace... More

We love this hike. It's not overly demanding so folks for most ages can do it. The views are very nice and unique. I highly recommend this hike. It'll take about an hour.

Trail is marked difficult, but it's only really because of all the roots and rocks that make up the paths. The trail has a variety of views -- lakeshore, the town of Ephraim, forest, and rock cliffs and small caves. Several good photo ops along the way. A portion of the trail leads to the lakeshore Minnehaha trail which has... More
