This was a pretty hard but doable hike. The mosquitoes were pretty bad in the first half, so bring bug spray. The bugs ruined our little breaks and pushed us to keep going. There was patchy snow towards the top, (unfortunately on some steep areas) and lots of mud, so expect to get your feet wet. And bring LOTS of water. Gorgeous views, definitely worth it.

Perfect trail for running or for a quick hike. Fairly easy and lots of views. Has a little bit of everything you want in a hike. We did run into a big black bear the first 1/4 of a mile, he definitely wasn’t afraid of us so be alert and bring bear spray.

I learned after the hike that the trail name is officially the “Amalga Trail” but everyone I know has forever and always referred to it as the Eagle Glacier Trail. Online it claims 5.5 miles, but there and back my AllTrails app claimed I hiked 11.9 miles there and back. GAIA GPS app said it was 5.87mi on the way in and 5.53mi on the way out. I was pretty spent by the end. I passed a few people coming out and also a couple headed in. My trip in was 2hrs 15 minutes, and the trip out was 1hr 50 minutes with a little bit of jogging as I headed out from the cabin. I know that I hike somewhat faster than most. The couple that arrived at the cabin while I was there said that it had taken them a little over three hours on the trail. Overall it’s a pretty gnarly trail with segments of smooth and normal. I stayed mostly dry despite there being a bit of mud and even a spot where the trail was converted into a creek bed. The gnarl comes from lots of roots and rocks up and down as you traverse at the edges of marshes.

This trail was what Sandre and i did when we cruised to the Inside Passage before we lived here but, it was tougher then we remember! Before we got off the bus and walked on the sidewalk... this was dirt instead so things must have changed. it was longer but Sandre liked it at first but then she had to turn around because we didnt think it was THIS hard! She needs her special shoes for that and we didn't bring them. I did more after alone whic was fine but then I threw up our breakfast smoothie by a rock and went back to. Info signs of where the Ice could go in the 50's and 20's, interesting to see how it is the way it is now, the way things change! WILL come back when we bring the shoes and i dont get sick! 3 and a half stars only because we didn't see a bear yet. We love bears! :) but we treat them with respect if we see them because they are just as curious as we are of them

snowy & confusing near the top. just follow the flagging tape & footprints & the map and it’s not too bad. if you make it through the snow the top is clear and warm!

The trail is in need of repair with places where the boardwalk has completely rotted out, another place where the stream has routed itself right down the center of the trail for ways, and yet another place where the water has flooded over the boardwalk along a beaver complex requiring you to scramble up and over the hillside or wade knee deep through the muck. Also throughout there are root wads and rocks along the trail. However, If you're up for it, it is definitely worth the challenge. The trail parallels multiple large beaver complexes offering tranquil water reflecting mountains and trees and beautiful views. I'm not sure why and I'm definitely not complaining, but we had very few mosquitoes during our entire stay. The cabin at Eagle Lake has the most awesome view of the mountains and Eagle Glacier and the lake is the residents of multiple waterfowl. It was dry during our entire stay which I am grateful for as I would definitely not like to try to hike the trail when it was wet. I think the boardwalks could be incredibly slick and dangerous.

Still lots of snow near the top 1/2. Lost the trail a couple times due to downed trees and snow. Flagging tape is helpful to find your way. Didn’t make it to the very top due to all the snow, although we got fairly close and above the tree line. Views are sure pretty!

Great hike and easy enough on the knees that the semi-active can get up there to where it breaks off to go to Mt. McGinnis. There is a bit of a rock slide that happened over the winter that's near the end of this hike that might give ya some trouble, but overall easy peasy. ENJOY! Conditions - May.11.2020 - Warm, dry overall, no mosquito's (until the top), hiking / trail shoes are recommended. Traffic was low so I would recommend bear mace / music / noise maker of some sort.

A few people are living on this trail right now. I was only able to hike 2mi. up before having to turn around due to a man following closely behind me with a rope - not sure if he was one of the people living there or not. Luckily, there were other hikers on the trail who helped me out. I did report the incident, but would recommend not hiking this trail alone.
