Although it's not a challenging scramble, the views on Eiffel Peak are breathtaking. Fall is the best time to go but expect to find the trails crowded with tourists who come to see the larches changing colours.
The route follows the Larch Valley Trail. After reaching Larch Valley, it leaves the trail and starts up the east ridge to a gullies leading to the summit.
