Trail starts out high on top of Eagle Rock. The trail takes you right across the massive rock slab with a beautiful of the Buffalo Creek Valley. The you descend a fast and fun trail with little rock armor creek crossings, and little optional trail features off the side of the trail. Big rock slab rides and drops keep this trail interesting. If you like skinnies, there are plenty to play on.

Downed trees on switchbacks prevents continuity. At least 7-8 down trees I had to navigate around.
