Flute Glacier and Eagle Peak Professional Review and Guide
"Despite their proximity to popular Eagle Lake, the windswept glacial erratics, lichen fields, and meltwater rivulets of Flute Glacier Valley see few human visitors. Hikers exploring the 4-mile length of this valley will find easy walking, abundant room for camping, and the chance to walk right up to the base of a massive glacier. The truly adventurous might also find their way up Eagle Peak, a challenging scramble. While it’s possible to reach both Flute Glacier and Eagle Peak in 1 long day from South Fork Trailhead, most people will want to make this an overnight trip and camp out on Eagle Lake’s shores or halfway up Flute Glacier Valley."
