Rated as moderated but would definitely say it’s “easy”. Done this a couple times, and both times were fairly busy with horses and ATV’s. It’s an easy trail walk into the lake. Good to do with kids or the family!

Fairly easy hike, beautiful clear lake. Is pretty muddy after rain for a while, lots of horse tours through.

The trail is pretty rocky part of it is in a dry creek bed, but a nice walk all in all. Eagle Lake is beautiful and just beyond it is James Falls a nice small waterfall that’s worth the extra little walk

Beautiful views. However be prepared for a rock covered path.

A good moderate hike. It takes about 45 - 60 minutes to hike to the lake. About the same time to go around the lake. The trail head is at the parking lot West of the Eagle Lake campground on the north side. There are outhouses and an info board. OHVs and horseback riders also share the trail so be mindful of the other users. Enjoy!

Please note that the trail does not start at the corrals located just off the trunk road. The trail begins on the south side of the James River. No motorized traffic permitted through corrals.
