Little more difficult trail for juneau. But worth it. Make sure you have on some sort of waterproof boot. I wore muck boots and they were perfect! Mostly walking through through forest but you're close to the river. Need to be sure footed. Lots of up and down, rocks, water and very slick spots. The view at eagle lake is beautiful. Definitely want to rent the cabin and go back.

Unbelievably gorgeous trail that has a lot to offer. A newer and well maintained Forrest Service cabin is available to rent on the lake with a spectacular vie of Eagle Glacier. From the cabin, there is another couple of miles to the glacier itself. Down river from the cabin maybe half a mile is a nice cascade type falls which is nice to visit.
