Trail shared by Zander Göpfert

A wide fire road that accesses Eagle Rock and Cheney Ranch Rd with terrific views.

Runner Notes

A relatively short, wide, dirt path with intermittent steep grades that makes for a great addition to the Eagle Rock Loop.

Description

This wide, dirt road connects Hub Junction to the north with Eagle Junction to the south while providing access to Eagle Rock and Cheney Ranch Rd, just beyond that. The grade of this one can make for slow travel, as there are some reasonably steep sections that will get your heart pumping.

Many visitors will use the southern half-mile as an out-and-back to Eagle Rock but the Eagle Rock Loop uses the entire road coming from Hub Junction to the north.

Flora & Fauna

Intact chaparral ecosystem, woody shrubs, sagebrush.
