Eagle Peak Trail
Entering Longmire from the southwest (via the Nisqually Entrance), drive past the National Park Inn, and turn right at the building with the flagpole. Continue straight through the employee housing area and across a suspension bridge. The trailhead is located 300 feet past the suspension bridge.
For the first two miles the trail ascends steeply through dense forest to a small stream, then continues another mile to a meadow. Beyond the meadow the trail is much steeper and rocky as it climbs the final .5 mile to the 5700 ft. saddle where the trail ends. Use extreme caution when you reach the saddle. This area is exposed and a fall could be deadly.NOTE: Always check current trail conditions before heading out. Log footbridges frequently wash out during the winter or other conditions could be affecting the trail.
