Eagleton Mine Camp Trail

Average Rating:    (3.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

The trail is pretty new. Much of it is single track. Some of it is no track, meaning it hasn't been ridden enough yet to wear in a track in many places. Part of it runs over an old, old railroad bed that still has the remains of the railroad ties in place, making the ride rougher than a cob in this section. Rocks and blowdowns can be nasty. Many steep uphills and downhills, one of which terminates in a dry wash after about a three foot drop off the trail. This drop will break bikes and bones if you are not ready for it. Parts of this trail are very technical, very tough. Parts of it are good fun for anyone whose skills are above that of a rank beginner. Don't overlook riding the power line. It's lots of fun and not as extreme as parts of the Eagleton Mine Camp Trail.

Summary:
I rode parts of this trail yesterday, and it is in serious need of trail work. I set out to ride the short loop from the north side trail to the Boiler Run connector and back up the southern side. Out of the parking area, the trail is well-signed, but is very brushy and the trail is very raw and clearly not ridden often. Brush crosses the trail and at points overtakes the trail completely and you need to just beat through it. Came back out to the Eagleton Road crossing and found that a large section of the trail is closed right now for timbering, so I took Eagleton Road to the next crossing and picked up the trail again until it hit the road once again at the private land area. This is where I looked to hit the Boiler Run connector, but it looked to be nothing more than an overgrown fire road. I looped back the trail and explored the beginning of the old Eagleton Railroad trail toward Bootlegger path on the southern side, but that was extremely brushy and overgrown as well. The trails on the north side have some promise, but they just need a lot of work and more riders.

Recommended Route:
Parts that aren't overgrown or being timbered. Bring a machete.

Summary:
Nice Ride, Grueling at times. "newer trail" Trails are very well marked but a map my be helpfull. Offers a wide varity of technical riding even found some big rocks a little off the trail to play on.

Recommended Route:
If you want to keep it simple ride the power lines. You can get a good look at the surrunding mountains. If you want to enjoy this trail head off into the woods.

Summary:
This trail offers flat, steep, wide, narrow, soothing, spooky riding, depending on your route. Obtain one of the Pennsylvania DCNR maps of the trail. It has rough topographical markings to give you a basic idea of where the rough stuff is. Parts of this trail are gouged out of a side hill steep enough to cause you to bang your uphill pedal into the hill on every pedal rotation. Your other option is to ride far enough on the outside edge of the trail to risk going over the edge with the slightest of bobbles. This trail will improve with age, if it gets used enough. Trail maintenance may become an issue, as there are several blowdowns across the trail already that are not rideable.

Recommended Route:
I forgot to mention in the trail writeup that the trail head is another 1/4 mile on out the Eagleton road after you park. The trail head is marked as little buckhorn trail. Look for the red rectangle blazes.
