We had Eagle Mountain all to ourselves. No leaves were out yet up this way and it was gorgeous weather. We were excited to see a moose across the way on Whale Lake.
Heed Don Holmes' advice to be alert for the summit trail turn off NW of Whale Lake. It can easily be overlooked although there is a sign on a nearby tree.
We found it tricky too where the trail leads at the top where you first come across all the exposed rock. We went to the top of these rocks but didn't see any trails. We continued on a little and followed one of the not so beaten paths and came back to the exposed rocks we saw earlier from another angle. This time we saw the path that goes to the highpoint.
