“This trail offers direct access to the Lakes Basin and Eagle Cap in the heart of the Eagle Cap Wilderness.”— Bruce Hope
This trail is enters the Eagle Cap Wilderness and the usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here. Practice Leave No Trace (LNT) ethics, camp 100 feet from fragile areas, bury human waste at least 200 feet from water, trails, and campsites.
This trail is usually closed by snow between November and May.
Leaving the trailhead, you soon pass the Falls Creek Trail #1807A, then cross Falls Creek (no bridge), and then enter the Eagle Cap Wilderness. The trail climbs steadily, but not steeply, up the valley floor past meadows and through forests. About 4.6 miles in, you pass the junction with the Billy Jones Trail #1824.
On its way up-canyon, the trail makes bridgeless crossings of some side creeks and of Hurricance Creek itself. These crossing may require wading and may be difficult (if not dangerous) at high water. After 9.6 miles, the trail climbs abruptly via some switchbacks, soon ending at its junction with the Lakes Basins Trail #1810.
