What You’ll Find at the End of Eagle River Road

You’ll discover the beauty of the Eagle River Valley as you begin your drive along Eagle River Road. Residential areas will give way to breathtaking views of glacially-carved mountains. At Mile 12 you will reach the log cabin visitor center – a threshold for connecting to the ever-changing landscape beyond.
