The Upper South Fork Eagle River Trailhead leads hikers into the South Fork Eagle River Valley. Follow the trail across alpine meadows and a rocky glacial moraine as you view the spectacular surrounding peaks. After a short hike, you’ll be ready to dip your feet into the bright blue, glacier-fed waters of adjacent Eagle and Symphony Lake. Access to Hunter Pass (steep), as well as the Hanging Valley Trail, Rendezvous Peak, Hunter Pass, and South Fork Falls.

No bikes allowed.

Dogs: Welcome, on a leash.

As with all trails in Alaska, hikers should be prepared, dress in layers, and bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, a map of the area, bear spray, and a well-charged cell phone.
