Very scenic trail. It starts in forest, travels across open slopes with views of the Columbia River Basin, and then it begins to climb up valley through subalpine forest and meadows to Horsehead Pass. From the pass you can connect to Chelan Summit Trail near Boiling Lake. Martin Creek Trail #429 takes off at 2 miles. At 5.5 miles, just past an overlook with benches, the Upper Eagle Lake Trail #431A branch right. At 6 miles, the Lower Eagle Trail #431B forks left.
