Notes: Because many folks need to catch the train the same day they climb Eolus and N. Eolus, I thought this info might be helpful. We started at 11,000 in Chicago basin. Took 6:38 RT, plus 1 hour to break camp and 2 hours to hike to Needleton with 40lb packs. Two males in their 50s in above average condition. We were moving at a good clip on the hike out, but trail is in great shape. Distance includes 6 mile hike from Basin to Needleton Station. Weather conditions just about perfect.
