This trail lets you bypass the boring Access Road to get to North Beach on Buntzen Lake. Aside from the climb at the beginning, this is a fairly wide and easy trail to ride. Be sure to begin this climb from the Academy Trail on the marked ascent for Mountain Bikers.

Access Info

Heading Northbound on the Academy trail, before reaching the parking lots, stay right at the foot bridge. You will then begin to switchback up Eagle Mountain.
