Go for a walk. Get some pics of the water or the beautiful coast. Excellent views. Great parking. Plenty of picnic places to choose from.

This was a little more challenging hike than the Jordan Pond Trail we previoisly did. I slipped and fell once, but I was able to catch myself with my hand and my wrist hurt for a moment. It was still very scenic and beautiful though.

Beautiful big lake that can be hard to find a parking spot to access. On the far end of the lake is the Eagle Lake carriage path parking. Park there and you can traverse the entire lake on the hardback carriage path. It’s about 6...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!
