Eagles Nest Trail

An easy hike along an old logging road that climbs gradually uphill through the woods leading to the spectacular Eagles Nest Lookout at the top of a 120 metre cliff. Easy 3km trail. Extreme care needed at cliff top lookout.

From Calabogie, take Hwy. 508 west and go 2.2 km past the Calabogie Peaks Ski Resort to the top of the mountain where you will find parking on your right on the side of the road.

Across the road, on your left, you will note the Eagle’s Nest trail sign marking the entrance to the trail. Follow the trail for about 20 minutes. Note the eagle’s head, painted signs in the trees above you on the right. As you pass a pond on your left, look for a large, colourful and informative sign, just off to your right, that explains the cultural history of Eagles Nest. Follow the short trail up the hill to the right to the cliff site and enjoy the view.
