Trails at Eagle Lake
You can enjoy three miles of walking trails in two separate loops. The intentionally narrow and winding trails feature the sanctuary’s highlights while protecting sensitive wetland and wildflower habitats.
An easy 20–30 minute woodland walk, you can cross a stone wall, pass through corridors of mountain laurel, and step over an occasional log. Listen for squirrels, chickadees, nuthatches and the tapping of woodpeckers overhead.
Hike up the glacial mound for a look into the forest, scan the pond edges for waterfowl, walk on a dark hemlock ridge, and admire the colors along Asnebumskit Brook. This loop will add 40–50 minutes to the Appleton Loop.
