Eagle River Nature Center

Eagle River Nature Center Review

Eagle River Road leads 12 mi into the mountains from the bedroom community of Eagle River. The Eagle River Nature Center, at the end of Eagle River Road, has wildlife displays, telescopes for wildlife spotting, and 9 mi of hiking trails within the center's perimeters, and there are volunteers to answer questions, lead hikes, and host naturalist programs throughout the year. A cabin that sleeps eight and a pair of yurts (round insulated tents) that sleep four and six are available to rent. The cost is $65 per night, and a 1.5 mi hike in is required. Amenities include woodstoves, firewood, and outdoor latrines. The center is also the trail end for the Crow Pass Trail, a 26-mi section of the Historic Iditarod Trail.
