Hiking

The first half was lovely but the route I took brought me through a swamp and bog which was a huge mistake. Be warned!

HikingGreat!

Awesome hiking trip. Trail was in great condition. Bugs were not an issue whatsoever. I think we saw 5 mosquitos near the beginning of the hike and that was it. Good views along the west shore of Wale Lake, along with a beaver dam, and awesome views at the top with several great places to sit and have a picnic. Would definitely recommend. It took us 3 hours in total, plus an additional 1 hour at the top to enjoy the view and eat lunch.

Great trail, with a few steeper areas but nice climbs and beautiful views. Very wooded and lots of shade.

Beautiful trail! Quite a workout and probably at the lower end of “hard”.

HikingGreat!Rocky

This was a great day hike in the Ely surrounding area. We went counter-clockwise and found the hike to be very diverse which was awesome. Lots of up and down with scenery ranging from tall trees to rocky/sandy beaches to dense wooded trails. Great views of the lake at times as well. After doing the Dry Lake part of the loop we wanted to see the waterfall so we did the extra bit of the Bass Lake loop that got us to the falls. All in all 8.6 mile hike.

Great short hike to view an amazing sunset. It’s near our campground and we will be there again tonight! Bring some cards and a beverage and soak it all in.

Only did a small amount of the trail looking for the Brule Lake Overlook, but it wasn't there. Trail was a bit muddy and very overgrown.

Just did the Bass Lake portion of the trail today plus a little extra meandering to explore some of the very cool campsites. It was a hot one and the water felt great!

My partner and I hiked this trail over a two day period- camping out at a beautiful campsite on the shoreline of Home Creek. This rocky trail was challenging at times, offered spectacular views of the forest, and was very low traffic. As others have mentioned I would also recommend bringing a map/compass or having your AllTrails GPS open- very easy to get lost on this trail as no markings are present. Would also recommend lots of bug spray and/or a mosquito net- especially for the buggy months.

Beautiful trail. Lots of good lake views. Pack a swim suit and lunch and enjoy one of the great mini beaches.

Good trail! Lots of roots. The last 0.4 miles or so was very steep and the lookout was good, but not great (4/5).

Nice hike! HO#29 for us. Two great overlooks right before you get up to the peak. What a nice part of the state to visit. Put on some bug spray and make sure you have some sturdy shoes.

Awesome little trail! I went here just after a short rain shower. The air was thick with the scent of fir and pine. Simply wonderful! The trail itself was well marked and there were some washed out places. The view at the end of the gorge was spectacular! Will do this one again!

HikingBugsRocky

I will 1st say that my AllTrails app completely failed me right from the start of this hike. But I used my Jog Tracker app and my Garmin GPS to record my trip. Eagle mountain trail is rated as moderate but it is close to being difficult. The 1st section of the trail from the trailhead to the SE corner of whale lake is definitely moderate and easy in many placed. Some rocks but nothing difficult. The entire trail has small, 8”-12” trip rocks so watch for those. Once you start hiking along the lakeshore there are a great many tree roots mingled with the rocks. Definitely moderate here. When you get to the NW corner of Whale Lake the trail splits and the “fun” begins. Most of the elevation starts here and the rocks become much more serious now. Not huge by any means but a lot of negotiating the right path. When you get very close to the top you finally get an opening to view the valley and a great view it is. Most of the trail is in a forest and not much to see except trees, trees, trees, and more trees. And some occasional water. A little farther and a larger opening over the valley, just before the last short push to the top. Be prepared for mosquitoes, we were. I would suggest plenty of water also. I hiked with my daughter and we enjoyed the hike. We aren’t really fast as we take a lot of time to “Smell the roses.” If the views had been more plentiful, I would have rated the hike higher. We probably won’t do this one again.

HikingBugsRocky

I climbed the peak merely because I am a highpointer. I wouldn't choose to do this trail again as there aren't many opportunities to see much except dense forest. The trail is extremely rocky and filled with tree roots, so it makes an otherwise short hike long and arduous. Bugs are an issue, but we were very prepared for that and didn't have any problems. I drank my entire bladder of water, so come prepared. A plaque marks the top and there is a nice view up there, but, again, limited. Best part of the hike was hiking with my Dad as it's the only time we get to spend together without anyone else around.

RunningBugsRocky

Fantastic trail. 2 cool overlooks close to the summit, green, dense forest, lake views, and cooler temperatures. Yes it's rocky, but so are many other great trails (like all mountain trails out west). The trail gets narrow in places and the forest is dense, which I thought added a cool feel to the experience. There were no other people on the trail until I summited and began the return trip, so you'll likely enjoy isolation. Be careful if there was recent rain because I occasionally slipped on wet rocks, but I never came across mud or washed out bridges. Once you arrive at the base of the mountain, you'll have the option to continue on Eagle Mtn trail or go right to Brule Lake, so be sure to follow the trail to the summit, but you can extend your hike or run however much you'd like by taking Brule Lake Trail. Use bug spray. Overall, one of my favorite places.

Short hike up to a beautiful bluff and gorgeous view. A must see when visiting the Gunflint Trail. It's a short climb so it's perfect for younger kids too.

Great secluded trail. Worth repeating to bring enough bug spray to cover everything head to toe a few times. We also covered our arms and heads but the flies still bit through the material.
