The above was from a press release in 2017 and passes and information that once were offered at that location will now be available at the hull’s Cove visitors Center off route 3 in Hull’s Cove. The Eagle Lake site will continue to operate for park operational duties such as trail maintenance and road work.
There are no real hiking trails in that area but there are carriage roads that run in the area not far away. The only trails that begin at the Park Headquarters are unmarked ones used by park staff to quickly move between carriage roads, I have a map of those unmarked paths along with GPS numbers. Even though these trails are unmarked and hard to locate without GPS, the public is allowed to hike them. The main trail begins behind Park Headquarters and quickly get you to the Aunt Betty’s Pond carriage trail, it continues down through the woods and again quickly arrives at the Eagle Lake Carriage Road, close to the lake.
