Very scenic trail. It starts in forest, travels across open slopes with views of the Columbia River Basin, and then it begins to climb up valley through subalpine forest and meadows to Horsehead Pass.

At 5.5 miles, just past an overlook with benches, the Upper Eagle Lake Trail #431A branch right. At 6 miles, the Lower Eagle Trail #431B forks left.
