  • As an ex Boy Scout, I love nature. But I am used to the Caribbean forests. Eagle River Nature Center is amazing. The forest itself is beautiful. Our hike was great, a lot of birds but no other wildlife. Some hiker told us that they saw a Black Bear today. We wish we could have been there.
  • This is a great place for a family hike. The short loop is stroller acceptable and there are lots of benches and tables for a picnic. Take bear spray, when we went some trails were closed due to high bear activity.
