Eagle Rock is the longest trail on Mount Borah. It starts at the top of the mountain (~910m) runs along a fire trail in a NW direction. At the cattle grate on the western face track you turn right and follow a 4 wheel drive track to a steep decent (well marked) with a off camber right hand corner that leads to 2.5km of fast flowing single track. This single track is made up off numerous fast tight off camber corners and rock gardens. Keep off the brakes for this track to get the most out of the speedy decent.

From the lowest point of this section you will now have some hard climbing to do (800m in distance, 40m ascent). You can either walk this section or put the effort in to achieve the satisfaction of getting through some technical ups and downs before the trail joins onto the bottom section of a trail call Snake Bite.

The bottom section of Eagle Rock is Snake Bite, which is the lower section of the DH trail. This is also the easiest part of Snake Bite which is fast flowy single track with jumps, drops, table tops and berms.
