What are the best hikes in the Eagle Cap Wilderness? Are they crowded?

Honestly, I have never had a bad hike in the Eagle Cap because it is big enough to absorb the few people who venture in each summer.

I love Glacier Lake and topping out on Eagle Cap is terrific. Bonney Lakes are at a lower elevation and can be buggy depending on the year. Certainly the Lakes Basin is the most popular camping spot, but again, I’ve never experienced crowds.
