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.
