Route-finding can be a challenge - take a GPS, or better still: go with someone who knows the area

Long climb up logging roads and some old railway bed to the summit of Eagle Heights. Descends 700m over 7+ km to the Koksilah River, almost completely on single track. It is not uncommon to see dirt/trails bikes on these trails.

Recent logging activity has disrupted several trails along this route.

Strenuous route, not for beginners.

Trail was recently revamped. Quite loose and some parts of the trail were a little hard to see. Still a fun rip though!

How can I get to the top without climbing up Eagle Heights 3?

Is it still somewhat intact despite the logging?

The trail has been reestablished through the clearcut. First 50 meters is pretty rough but then connects to the old trail and is good from that point down!
