Runner Notes

At the top of the climb it can be hard to tell the Eagle Scout Trail from the Nature Loop. The Nature Loop is the red-blazed trail to the left.

Description

The Eagle Scout Trail takes the longest approach to Douglas Mountain. It's the orange-blazed trail from the parking lot on Spring Ledge Road. It is somewhat downhill and flat as it follows along a snowmobile trail, but soon stays left and separates from the snowmobile trail.

Next it starts to climb Douglas Mountain slowly, but that changes when it takes a right-hand turn and heads west. The trail climbs up aggressively after crossing a small brook, but levels off a bit when it connects with the Nature Loop Trail. The trail continues to climb until it breaks out of the trees at the stone tower that marks the summit.
