The Eagle Cliff Trail
Distance: 2.6 miles
Elevation Gain: 1650 ft.
This trail begins going through a field before entering the woods. It quickly becomes steep and tricky as it ascends up a ledge (caution dangerous when icy or wet) to Eagle Cliff. At about 0.6 mile it reaches Eagle Cliff. The trail at that point moderates and continues it moderate climb to the summit. It reachs the the Red Hill Trail just before the summit.
Essential GearIn summer no technical gear is needed. However use caution if wet due to the fact sections on this trail are rocky, steep and exposed.
In winter crampons and trekking poles are a nessesity. Though it looks goofy, an ice axe isn't a bad idea for the more exposed sections.
