Eagle Cliff Trailheads (Trail #68)


Eagle Cliff Trailhead

The Eagle Cliff Trails were developed by local skiing enthusiasts in the mid 1980's. This trail system became popular among other recreationists because of the opportunity to create your own adventure.

With twenty-one intertwining loop and dead-end trails, the system offers fun and challenge at every turn. Trails range from short, rugged and remote to longer, looping trails with a range of difficulty. The opportunity to combine trails and create a unique experience is only one of the highlights of this system.

The trail difficulties are rated for cross-country skiing, other users may find them less difficult. Today the trails are maintained by the USDA Forest Service and the Eagle Cliff Ski Association.

We ask that snowshoers not use the groomed ski trails. Snowshoeing damages the tracks that the ski clubs work hard to establish and maintain.  Snowshoe damage makes it very difficult to ski on the tracks.
