A level route that winds 7.5 miles to the lake formed by Eagle Glacier. Less than a mile from the glacier’s face, Eagle Glacier Cabin offers views that make it well worth reserving in advance. The trailhead is at Eagle Beach State Recreation Area, beyond the Glacier Hwy bridge, 0.4 miles past the trailhead for the Herbert Glacier Trail.
Plan on a round-trip of seven to eight hours (15 miles) to reach the impressive Eagle Glacier and return to the trailhead. Note that the trail is sometimes called the Eagle Glacier Trail.
