The carriage trails circle around Eagle Lake and is about 6 miles total around the lake. It is especially beautiful during the fall with the trees changing color. It is semi flat and does not have any steep inclines, just a gentle, gradual climb on...More

We rode our bikes around Eagle Lake on the carriage roads. Most of the ride is fairly flat though there are some long, gradual inclines. The views along the way are beautiful. This is a peaceful place.

Wish I could say that this is the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen.....I doubt that it is. HOWEVER it is darn nice.....still water is always comforting.....I just love to see reflections of the surroundings in the water. This is one of those spots....More

We loved this trail. I couldn't stop taking photos. The fall leaves were beautiful. We enjoyed the shortcut trail more than the carriage road trail. Great hike!

Got here before the colors peaked, but still enjoyed the views and the trail. Wish we had more time to enjoy spots like this. My best shot of the lake was before we even got there!

We started the walk on the Carriage road. It was very easy for the first mile. Then Eagle Lake trail veers to the left and goes close to the Lake. It is a beautiful trail but we had to scramble a little bit. So you...More

The carriage road with a fairly smooth and level surface runs along one side of this lake making for easy hiking, running or biking. There are inclines further along, but nothing strenuous. Being Fall, there was an abundance of beautiful colorful foliage along the shores....More
