Eagle Trail is a 2.0-mile, 1.5-hour difficult loop trail. Sturdy shoes, pack water and a snack are recommended. Begin the trail at Eagle Bluff Overlook or Eagle Terrace. You can also connect to Eagle Trail from Minnehaha Trail, near Nicolet South Campground. It is one of the most popular and scenic trails at Peninsula State Park.
The difficult route treks along the shoreline and across Door County's highest bluff offering sights including impressive rock cliffs, a natural spring, foundation ruins, Ephraim village - across Eagle Harbor, and an abundance of plant life. The scenic trail towers 200 feet above the water paralleling Eagle Harbor for more than a mile. Striking sights along the trail include 500-year-old cedars, massive maple-beech-birch stands, Jack-in-the pulpit (June bloom time), wild geranium (June to September bloom time), thimbleberries (red fruit ripens in August), and perhaps a glimpse of the non poisonous fox snake, or the ground warbler called oven bird who nests on the ground and calls "teacher-teacher."
Directions: From Fish Creek, WI, Travel north on Hwy. 42 for three miles to reach the park entrance. Begin the trail at Eagle Bluff Overlook or Eagle Terrace.
