The East Eagle Trailhead is located at the end of Forest Service road 7745 along East Eagle Creek. The trailhead is popular in the summer for day and extended trips into the southern Wallowa Mountains and Eagle Cap Wilderness, and in the fall for big game hunting. Visitors have two options for accessing trails in this area. They can park at the end of road at the East Eagle Trailhead with primary access to the East Eagle Creek Trail #1910, or they can park lower down at the Little Kettle Creek Trailhead which better accommodates trucks and stock trailers. The Little Kettle Creek Trailhead is the main access for Trail #1945 Kettle Creek.
