Eagle Lake Trail Description

The Eagle Lake Trail provides a pleasant ride through pine and sage trees along the south shore of the second largest natural lake in California. The trail is located in Lassen National Forest and travels just over 5 miles from Christie Campground to the Eagle Lake Marina.

As its name implies, the area is a great place to see eagles, as well as osprey, pelicans and great blue herons. Deer, antelope, coyotes, rabbits and other animals are also common. During your journey, drinking water and restrooms can be found in the campgrounds adjacent to the trail and food can be purchased at the marina.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found at Eagle Lake Marina (off Boat Harbor Road) or the Christie Campground (off County Road A-1).
