New to the area and hiking. Was a great first trip for the wife, dog, and I. Took about 2 hrs with stops for some gorgeous pictures. This time of year would recommend spikes for grip. Other than that, it was perfect.

Quick little hike. Great for children. Well maintained. Mosquito spray is a must!!! The valley is lovely. Can be wet at times but was dry when we were there.

Trail near the river was flooded out, made for an added adventure crossing some small log bridges. As usual per the area, mosquitoes were abundant! Great evening hike!

Great short hike with awesome views of the Eagle River valley and surrounding mountains. My only complaint is that the bypass is a little muddy and poorly marked. We started off seeing a young black bear in the lower parking lot before we even got parked! We saw plenty of moose and bear sign but no wildlife other than squirrels and birds on the trail. Saw the young black bear again on the service road as we approached the visitors center. Don't forget the bug spray, the mosquitos are fierce!

Great hike, very easy. Mostly flat, family friendly, great views throughout most of the day. No snow, and very little mud. Dogs welcome on leash. The Nature Center is really cool with lots of things to do and see inside. Parking is 5$.

We absolutely love the Eagle River nature center trails. It is a great way to go street hunting your legs for a couple hours!

Very nice trail even in the winter. It is flat, winding, and offers beautiful views of wooded area, river and mountains.

Great way to spend a few hours on the trail. The first half of the trail to Echo Bend is heavily trafficked and the trail is wide and flat. Once you pass the Rapids yurt things become less busy and the scenery really improves too! Great river views from this point on.

Hiked the Iditarod Trail to Echo Bend and then took the Dew Mound Trail back to the nature center. Well maintained trail with great views of the Chugach Range. The hike took around 3 hours with no snow and very little ice, which was nice for late November.

Took my two youngest for a 3-miler through the Albert Loop...saw a moose...too many bugs for my liking on this one. The river access was pretty cool for sure!

Attire center is nice. Easy hike around a loop or cross cross around in the loop. Connects to crow pass Iditarod.
