This is actually two hikes. The first hike, to Barclay Lake, is an easy trail, suitable for young children. It has the added bonus of a lake with a shallow shoreline, large campsites, a designated day-use area, pit toilet, and the possibility of catching fish. The hike to Eagle Lake begins from Barclay Lake and gains nearly 1,500 feet in elevation on a trail that goes straight up. It is recommended only for hikers with experience in route-finding. Even in late spring the upper reaches of the trail in the vicinity of Stone and Eagle Lakes are snow-covered, and a 500-foot ascent through talus may be required.
