Hanging Valley Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trail is an offshoot of the South Fork Trail that leads to Eagle and Symphony Lakes. It provides some awesome views of the Eagle River Valley and South Fork Eagle River as it works its way up into the hanging valley perched above the Eagle River Valley floor.

The final destination for most hikers, near the end of the valley, is the hidden Hanging Valley Tarn, nestled in a secluded cirque. This is an excellent camping area garlanded with wildflowers and alpine mosses, accompanied by the scurrying activity of Arctic ground squirrels. The lake provides a tranquil environment for camping and a stopping ground for several species of waterfowl such as gulls, harlequin ducks, and Barrow’s goldeneye."
