Route Climbed: Eagle Mountain trail Date Climbed: July 4th, 1999
Overnighted at the first campsite on July 3rd, then did the summit the morning of the 4th. The skies were cloudy but there was little warning before the storm of the century overtook me on the way back to the trailhead. Dodged a few falling trees as I ran to a bog to ride out the storm. Fortunately, this area was not devasted as like some of the other places in the BWCA, so I was able to easily hike back out to my car after the storm passed.
Route Climbed: Eagle Mt Trail Date Climbed: July, 1997
The drive to get to the trailhead parking area was like going through a maze of gravel roads. The trail was kind of boring until we headed around the lake and started the climb. Great views from the cliffs on top.
