“This branch off of Robe Mountain Trail leads to Eagle's Nest, the sister lookout of Buzzard's Roost”

Short, easy trail.
This trail is short and easy. Very little grade is present on the inclines and the trail is mostly soft sandstone wash. For a mild run, it offers an excellent terminus: Eagle's Nest is a stack of large boulders scattered along a pinnacle. It's a great place for viewing far over the trees or just scrambling around the boulder piles.
Flora & Fauna
Blueberry shrubs are scattered around the trail side and many tall oak and pine rise above the trail.
Eagle's Nest seems to also be a bluejay nest, because they were causing quite a fuss.
