Traverse Lake Professional Review and Guide

"A long, round-trip day hike or a two-day, round-trip backpack in the Eagle Cap Wilderness. The Eagle Cap Wilderness is a land of alpine lakes and meadows, steep glaciated valleys, splendid vistas, and ample wildlife.

Comprised of 358,461 acres, Eagle Cap is Oregon’s largest wilderness (and one of the most popular), with more than 500 miles of trails penetrating the preserve. Special attractions: Grand views; wildflowers; good fishing and swimming."
