If you choose to climb the peak, route climbing skills come in handy. Eagle Peak is 11,845 ft. in elevation; it is a steep climb to the top, but it doesn't require scrambling. From the top you have an incredible view of the Sierra Nevada, Mono Lake, Bridgeport Reservoir, and the canyons of Yosemite. The view of the Sawtooth Range is nice. Climbing Eagle Peak is a very long day hike or a nice over night trip. Make sure to bring a map; the trail may be difficult to follow in some sections.
Directions: From Bridgeport, Follow U.S. Highway 395 to the sign for Twin Lakes; follow Twin Lakes Road to Doc & Al's Resort. Turn right at the Resort, follow the signs for Buckeye Campground till you get to the campground, then follow the road past the campground to the trailhead. Hike the Buckeye Trail for about 125 yards to reach the Eagle Creek Junction. Eagle Creek is marked and heads south.
