Eaglesmere TH #61
The trail climbs steadily through aspen and pine forests, eventually reaching a clearing offering views of Lower Cataract Lake, the Lower Blue Valley and up to Eagles Nest Peak. The trail climbs up to Eaglesmere Lakes that are nestled in the trees. This is an excellent hike to view changing colors in the fall. The area abounds with wildflowers in mid-late June.
