You’ll want to have good shoes and watch your footing, as the trail is lined with roots and is often wet. The trail winds through old-growth forest, past beaver dams and old mining rails, and ends at a log cabin nestled at the edge of a scenic lake with gorgeous views of Eagle Glacier and the surrounding mountains.
Experience a number of different ecosystems along this trail. You’ll walk through open meadow, wetland, and rainforest muskeg just to name a few.

This trail follows the former mining tramway. The bridges are in poor condition and the trail has not been maintained in years. The area is very scenic with high populations of brown bears. The trail ends in Yankee Basin and connects to Bessie Creek Trail.
