Eaglesmere Trail #61


The trail maintains a steady climb through aspen and pine forests, eventually reaching a clearing offering views down to 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 the Aspen trees changing colors in the fall. In addition, an abundance of wildflowers can be seen from mid-late June.
