Description

From the intersection of Andy's Loop and Eagle's Tail, continue on the ridge where Eagle's Wing begins. Plenty of climbing will eventually lead you to the base of the hardest climb, bail out here on the Eagle's Connector Trail if you are already feeling worked. Grind up the next hill where you are greeted by amazing views of the Colorado National Monument, Book Cliffs, the Grand Mesa and Serpents Trail across the valley below.

Stay sharp and know that you have a couple of false summits before you get to the highest point. The trail tops out at a lone tree growing out of the bedrock looking down on Andy's Loop, the Echo Canyon Trail and The Ribbon. Get your downhill technical head on and start the descent over bulbous, rocky and loose trail. Follow the path of least resistance (avoiding the mountain bike only Free Lunch Trail that heads uphill at a junction) and bomb down the hill following signs for the Tabeguache Trail which will take you back to the parking lot.
