This trail is usually closed due to snow from November to early June. Mountain bikers should yield to runners, but keep an eye out as they will be traveling downhill (faster due to the grade).
Eureka Peak Trail #671 is a mile-plus long steep climb connecting the Still Creek Road (Forest Road 2612) and drainage to the Mud Creek drainage along Sherar Burn Road, also known as Kinzel Lake Road and Forest Road 2613. It is used mostly by mountain bikers doing a loop on these two forest roads. Of course it can also be hiked or run in the opposite direction, making it a workout for your knees.
The quickest access to the (lower) trailhead is from the top of Still Creek Road where it intersects with Sherar Burn Road. Head west on Still Creek Road for 2.4 miles, and the small trailhead is on your left coming down the drainage.
The trail starts with a relatively gradual grade for about 750 feet, crosses a creek and then really starts a steady climb through a thick forest with few openings and no views. The trail is not as exciting as its name.
Flora & Fauna
Mountain hemlock, silver, and noble fir dominate with some Douglas fir and western red cedars closer to Still Creek.
