Review of Eagle Trail

The two mile Eagle Trail is marked difficult, but it's only the area at the craggy dolomite rocks that seems difficult. The trail has a variety of views -- lakeshore, the town of Ephraim, forest, and rock cliffs and sea caves. Many photo ops can be found along the way. The trailhead is at Eagle Terrace near the tower. A portion of the trail is also used to access the easy lakeshore Minnehaha trail which is 0.7 mile one way.

Also along the beach and in the forest.
We found it comfortable to walk and I was six months pregnant.
But we met travelers who warned us that it is difficult to track
So it is worth considering the different views about the track.
We strongly recommend

There are a lot of these towers in parks, but none have a view like this, particularly if fall colors are your thing, you can climb 250 feet to the top and have a great view. It;s inside Peninsula State Park so you will need a vehicle pass

The Eagle Trail winds through wonderful forest, up and down rocky outcroppings, and along the beautiful Bay. You have to step over tree roots and rocks, but it's not a difficult hike, and it's well worth the effort.

This is a great hike in Peninsula State Park, with great views, and challenging sections as well. The whole trail isn't challenging, but there are parts that are harder than others. You won't need a rope and climbing gear, but you will not want to make the hike in sandals. There are some really neat caves to explore on the hike, and some great photo opportunities. Keep your eyes up too when you can, and you might see some Bald Eagles flying over head.
