Wonderful hike but not accessible as of last week (May 10th) due to landslide and multiple trees down further up road (we walked passed landslide but didn't make it to trailhead). Hoping this gets cleared up soon.

this hike was amazing! bit hard to find tho.
what the guy down there said is pretty accurate, but I wasn't sure where to turn off the highway because GPS will have you turn right much farther than you should...
Off 58, turn onto goodman creek dr, go down the gravel road for about 3 miles and take the left in the fork in the road. after about a half a mile there is a parking lot to the right that is steep and holds about 5 cars. there is no trailhead but its on the right side of the lot.
we had no idea if we had arrived at the right place, but we decided to do it anyways and found some girls halfway up that confirmed it was Eagles Rest.
foggy the whole time we hiked but it made the forest look that much cooler. kind of bummed at the top when it was foggy, but I wanted to wait it out and thank goodness we did because all the clouds passed and we were able to see the whole valley, no clouds.

The road off 22 to get the to the trailhead was in much better shape than expected. Great, relaxing hike. Forest Ranger was roping off sections of the Lake to allow for habitat restoration. Hike only had snow the last 1/2 mile or so to the lake, hardback, minimal post-holing.

Beautiful views of Mount Jefferson & Detroit Lake. Trail is in fantastic condition. Made it up to the top in 35 min & didn't see another person the entire hike.

Beautiful hike even with the bit of snow still left in the trail. Highly recommended for families.

Great hike! I'd rate it moderate to difficult. Its harder than most moderates I've done. The end especially is very steep, but it's a great hike. We finished it in just under 4 hours on a clear day. Definitely worth the trek!

This is a stunningly beautiful hike. I would rate it as an easy to moderate hike. There are any other people on the path, but most of the time it feels like you have the trail to yourself. Go check this hike out - today!

Excellent trek. Beautiful creek. Still a good number of muddy spots on the trail. Lots of fragrant wildflowers mid-May.
