Eagle River is a river underneath the Eagle Mountain's Dusky Bridge. The river is very fast-flowing with a strong current. As with the mountain and bridge, the river is involved in a number of several crimes and strange events. It has been said that most of those who fall into the river are never found again, with two known exceptions.

In 2008, sisters Dahlia and Valerie Hawthorne conspired with Dahlia's boyfriend Terry Fawles to stage a kidnapping in a ploy to steal a diamond valued at 2$ million from the father of the Hawthornes. Fawles would act as the kidnapper, Dahlia his supposed hostage, and Valerie would make the exchange. The staged exchange for the diamond occurred on the river. Having conspired with Dahlia to betray Terry, Valerie shot him, and Dahlia then jumped into the river with the diamond in a backpack. Dahlia secretly survived the fall somehow, but Terry was sentenced to life in prison for her kidnapping and murder.

In 2019, Phoenix Wright and Maya Fey were staying at Eagle Mountain. At night, Phoenix discovered the corpse of Elise Deauxnim and rushed to a public phone near the recently lit-ablaze Dusky Bridge to call the police. Maya had been in the Inner Temple on the other side of the bridge doing training; realizing that she may have been trapped with Elise's murderer, Phoenix hastily raced across the bridge, only for it to give out underneath him. He fell into the river.
As with Dahlia 12 years prior, Phoenix survived his fall, though he needed to be hospitalized for 2 days and returned with a cough afterwards.
