The CW Eagle Lakes loop starts on Crater Creek Tr416 to Eagle Lakes Tr431 to Martin Creek Tr429, then uses Angel Staircase Tr1259.32 and Summit Tr1259.3 to loop over to Eagle Lakes Tr431 for the return.
The ride includes several challenging 1mi, 22% climbs.
Crater Creek Tr416, Eagle Lakes Tr431, Martin Creek Tr429 and Foggy Dew Tr417 extend from the base of the this trail system like spokes on a wheel, connected at the top by Summit Tr1259.3 and Angel Staircase Tr1259.32.
Crater Creek Tr416 is a 7mi OAB to Crater Lake, with a 13%, 2400' ascent.
The other great Eagle Lakes area ride is Foggy Dew Tr417 to Cooney Lake.
Due to high elevation, these trails may only be rideable in August.
North of the Eagle Lakes area, hikers can access East Fork Buttermilk Tr420 and Libby Creek Trail 415 in the Sawtooth Wilderness area, from FR43. Black Pine Lake CG is well positioned as a basecamp for exploring Sawtooth Wilderness terrain.
To the west, the Prince Creek campground is accessible by ferry, and offers a great CCW loop hiking trail with Summit Trail 1259, Fish Creek Trail 1248, Indianhead Basin Trail 1250 and Horton Butte Trail 1250.1, returning on Lakeshore Trail 1247.
Mosquitoes are ferocious in this area until August. Feel free to try the natural repellents, and avoid drinking carbonated drinks prior to riding, but Deet 100 may be the only protection from 'the swarm'.
