Rightmost trail in Eagle Conservation site, frequented by both bikers and hikers, both directions but more fun downhill as it leads right into the Bench in front of Benchland Terrace. Mostly roots, sawed-off trees and 2 small bridges with some gentle uphill sections and chill downhill.
On the lower end of Intermediate.

Access Info

Bike all the way up to Eagle Terrace rightside deadend and take the trail up towards silvertip area. Pass a few closed trails to the left and there will be an opening with a drop-in into a righthand turn. Alternatively, you can keep going up on the same trail and arrive at the top of Silvertip road or take a right and go on Montane Traverse
