About: Eagle Peak is a 6955 feet mountain in the U.S. state of Alaska, located in Chugach State Park in Anchorage Municipality. Location The peak is situated at the head of South Fork Eagle River Valley, east of downtown Anchorage, and stands out as the highest summit along a long ridgeline that includes Flute Peak (6610 ft.) and Hurdygurdy Mountain (5965 ft.) Towering above Eagle Lake, Flute Glacier, and Eagle River Valley, Eagle Peak is one of several imposing peaks in the immediate area over 6000 feet. Topography Starting from a base elevation on the Eastern side of approximately 700 ft., Eagle Peak climbs dramatically to its 6955 ft. summit in little more than a mile and a half. Aerially it resembles a three-sided pyramid, with ridges connecting from the Northwest and South. All sides feature extensive cliff banding, with a particularly prominent series of cliffs on the Northern face that climb nearly 3000 vertical feet. Terrain Beginning at approximately 1000 ft., Eagle Peak becomes a predominantly alpine zone, characterized by extremely scant vegetation, a variety of lichens, snow pack (including year-round snowfields), and a large amount of bare, and often loose, rock. Wildlife Like many Alaskan mountains, Eagle Peak may be frequented by ptarmigan, Dahl sheep, mountain goats, and other alpine animals. Despite the lack of vegetation, a variety of insects thrive at high elevations throughout Alaska. Overhead, one may spot a hawk or eagle.
