Reviewed by: Sonic , from Calgary

Summary:
This is a forested trail with lots of firs, ferns and redwoods. The trail starts starts with a gradual climb that eventually gets very steep. You have to walk up in places. It's about a 1 hour climb to the top. There are several trails that link up along the way. Coming back down can be hairy. It is very fast with lots of 90 degree turns, roots, rocks and logs. I crashed and burned on this one! Watch your speed!

Recommended Route:
Follow the trail from the mouth of the park on the right. The signs along the way say Eagles Bluff.
