We’ll listen for birds, look for new wildflowers, and enjoy lunch with beautiful views from the historic fire tower at the hill’s summit. The Eagle Cliff trail is considered challenging, with nearly 1,900 feet of elevation gain over 2.4 miles, so come prepared to work for the reward! Please bring normal hiking equipment, including boots that can get wet and muddy. The bottom part of this trail is fairly steep, so trekking poles may be desirable. Please also pack a lunch to enjoy at the summit. This hike is open to everyone, although parts of this trail are considered challenging. Children must be accompanied by an adult. 

Eagle Cliff is owned by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forest, the Lakes Region Conservation Trust holds the conservation easement, and the Squam Lakes Association helps maintain the trails. Red Hill is owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, and the SLA helps maintain the trail. 

Throughout the year, the Squam Lakes Association offers free programs open to the public on a variety of nature and conservation related topics. The Adventure Ecology programs are presented by the Lakes Region Conservation Corps members who perform important conservation work in support of the Association’s mission.To register for this Adventure Ecology Program, head to squamlakes.org/calendar. 

The Lakes Region Conservation Corps (LRCC) is an AmeriCorps service program that develops skills and experiences for conservation professionals. LRCC members are the driving force behind the Squam Lakes Association’s conservation efforts. The program provides hands-on conservation work experience and numerous certifications over a broad range of areas, which ensures that LRCC members are capable of independently approaching a variety of tasks in the environmental conservation field. Members remove invasive species from the Squam watershed, manage and act as caretakers at our backcountry campsites, maintain the SLA’s 50+ miles of trails, educate the public on local and regional conservation initiatives, spearhead reports on conservation efforts, lead SLA volunteer crews and ensure the daily functioning of the Squam Lakes Association’s programs.
