Aurora Ridge and Eagle Lakes Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Despite easy access, Aurora Ridge is one of the least hiked trails in Olympic National Park. Wind through a forested tunnel up this long, lumpy emerald divide between the Sol Duc and Lake Crescent valleys. Then drop into a hidden bowl that cradles the spring-fed, green-tinted Eagle Lakes. While this hike lacks views, it abounds with solitude.
The way starts on an old logging road lined with alders and often brushy. After about 1 mile, the trail begins to climb more steadily, switch backing through open forest.
Dogs are prohibited."
