Eagles Peak Trail is a 3.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near United States Air Force Academy, Colorado that features a waterfall and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
A popular hike up the dominant peak in the vicinity of the cadet area. It is shown on the maps as North Peak, but most call it Eagle Peak.
Beautiful trail, really well marked. Quite a work out, but views make it totally worth it. Only gave it 4 stars because of how hard it was on the knees on the way down (loose gravel, steep grades). According to our GPS the trail was longer than All Trails says. At 1.8 miles, we had just started the scramble on the steepest part of the incline and had about .5 miles left. Don't let it discourage you, it's worth it!! Took us as decently fit people in our late 20s almost 2 hours to get to the summit
Hiked this with some family from Louisiana. A bit ambitious for the mothers in the group. Overall great hike and interesting way to get your family to never want to hike again
Three of us from Louisiana and three from Colorado Springs did it today. Great scenery. Probably more than we should have bitten off on our first day here but really enjoyed it
Fantastic hike! Great views, great scenery, and definitely a workout as well. Also, for a different experience you can take a right turn in the aspen grove and do some scrambling up those rocks.
Great views, pretty hard with lots of steep areas. Nice camping area in the aspen grove up top.
Best hike I've done in the Springs, it's challenging and very scenic. The top has a view from downtown Colorado Springs up to Larkspur and further. Relatable to the incline without stairs and more Ice but slightly less steep.
fantastic day. Trail was a bit snowy and icy. Taking it slowly, especially coming down, was the order of the day. the view of snow heavy Pikes Peak was amazing.
Good steep hike with lots of rocks. Great challenge.
Took my dog on this trail not knowing what to expect. She did great, but if you have a short dog or one under 30 pounds it's going to have a hard time jumping up and down some of the larger boulders on the trail.
It was super fun, and a full body workout. Seriously-- I was dead by the end.
But gorgeous views at the top and following a pretty waterfall for most of it made the climb easier.
Will definitely go with my pup again.
Amazing! Scenery never got boring. Fun scramble over rocks!
fun rock hopping! beautiful views
We felt like this was more challenging than the incline! Coming down was hard since we were tired haha. Simply incredible view at top. No bears, only tracks and poo. Be careful
Terrific, difficult, and challenging!
Great trail. Off the beaten path. Great views. Nice little waterfall. Slippery on the downhill.
Does remind me of the inclline. Hard climb uphill, not super sturdy/accessible, great quick hike/workout.
