Occasional stone cairns left by previous hikers are the only trail markers to Eagle Lake. The backcountry bushwhack to Eagle Lake is called a Fisherman's Trail, code for "Good luck with that." Hiker Chuck Schmidt of Olympia climbs with a fully loaded pack to the lake. He was rewarded with a catch of three rainbow and cutthroat trout.
