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.

 Is it still somewhat intact despite the logging?

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

      There is a trail through the clear cut. It's marked by a ribbon on a log.
