South side of Eagle Glacier Lake
23 miles northwest of Juneau on the south side of Eagle Glacier Lake in front of Eagle Glacier. Trailhead is at mile 27.5 on the west side of Eagle River next to the Eagle River highway bridge. It is a 5.5 mile hike to the cabin.
Access is via the 5 1/2 mile Amalga Trail, which is fairly strenuous but with little total elevation gain. It is not recommended for cross-country skiing because of bumpy terrain, so snowshoes are advised in the winter.
The site has an excellent view of the lake, Eagle Glacier and the surrounding mountains. The trail continues on another 2 miles with access to the glacier. Note: Cabin is open to public as a warming shelter from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
