Points of Eagle Beach State Recreation Site
Relatively easy but long (up to 7 hours), this full-day hike is worth the effort for the views at the end. 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.
This short trail leads you along the mouth of the Eagle River and a salt marsh estuary. Be sure to pack a picnic as there are tables near the end of the trail.

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.
