Rasict...


Well yes, You take 25 south to lake blvd. In the springs, Take Lake west till you see the big Broadmoor hotel in front of you. Take the loopy south, follow that road round the golfcourse. When you get to a stop sign, go straight through. Follow that long ass dirt road till you see a pond on your right, with 2 trails running through trees. The one on the right is eagle rock. It is a fun trail, but with snow it sucks and is very hard.

You can take the by passes in stock without snow.

You'll be on that dirt road for 10 miles. The trail head has a 370C sign.

Eagle Rock is FSR 370C.

http://www.4x4trails.net/db_view_trail.php?trailNum=395

It is rated a 7. It is every bit of a 7. Locker is necessary. Sliders strongly recommended. Even the bypasses are not necessarily easy. Two trucks minimum for doing this trail. A tow strap is strongly recommended. Winch is optional.

The entry to Eagle Rock along Gold Camp Road is a large water obstacle.

This trail is passable until snowfall accumulates to drift the trail closed. The conditions on this trail change from month to month. If you want to see pictures, do a webshots search for my screen name. I have pictures posted in a folder with the trail name.

The lower part of the trail is rocky, with lots of loose material to climb. The upper part of the trail is quite narrow and weaves between trees. A newer model Tacoma will need to make a three-point turn through some of the trees while the older, smaller Tacomas will be capable of driving right through.

It is possible to do Eagle Rock with a stock Tacoma. But I refer you to my opening statement.

The trail ties into FSR 379 just below the spur to go up Mt. Baldy. If you want the easier trail out, turn right/east on 379, it is 2wd. If you want a longer, slightly more adventurous exit, turn left on 379, it requires 4wd and dumps out onto 376 to go back to Gold Camp Road.

Please note though, I had a group on FSR 379 last weekend and sections of the trail already have the beginning of the winter snowpack accumulating.

Eagle Rock is still one of my favorite trails. Enjoy!

Brian: Its 370c

I think they have the header labeled wrong on 4x4 trails beacause their text says this.....

Access: To get there take Old Stagecoach Road out of Colorado Springs, past the Mt. Baldy(Cpt. Jacks) trail head.It's about 3-4 miles from that point. After you cross a cattle guard you are just a couple minutes from the trailhead. The trail is on the north side, and is marked 370 C. Head up the trail from there. Please note that there are trails running in many directions from the trailhead. Keep bearing right at forks and watch the signs to stay on 370C.

Trail dmage also has it marked as 370c

I have been there a hundred times and am pretty sure it is 370c. But then again i know exactly where it is so i may not have read that sign in a long time :(
