Ascent Trip Report

Flew to MKE and rented a car to hit the Midwest Lakes Area high points. Eagle Mountain was third of 5 for this trip. I stayed at the Eagle Mountain Trailhead the night before. Drive to the trailhead is very straight forward on well maintained compacted gravel road. Took the Eagle mountain trail. Very straight forward. The views at whale lake are spectacular. There is a viewing opportunity near the top. Stunning views from this vista. There are no views from the top. Nearing the highpoint you will need to go up and then take two right turns to finally reach the HP plaque.
