"Eagle Rock refers to the first half of the trail that climbs and merges with Mount Baldy at Deer Park. The route described here adds an exit route. This route passes through a remote area down the back side of Almagre Mountain. Dispersed camping at Deer Park. Good trail for ATVs. Stay on routes marked with white arrow signs. Narrow, steep and rocky. Muddy and slippery in places, especially early in the year. Not suitable for stock vehicles."

I found this trail a little more challenging then expected. It is a very good trail for rock crawling. Approximately 1 mile up the trail the trail turns into a challenge. When we approached the first challenging hill a broke down suburban with a busted tie rod was in the bypass route. I have a jeep Rubicon with a 2 1/2 inch lift and 285 tires on stock rims. I had no issues climbing the boulders but has issues with clearance. I did wench out of a couple of locations and had to block up the tire to gain the required clearance. My brother came alone on this trip with a Toyota JK with a 4 inch lift and 33 inch tire. He also had clearance issues and required wenching. If the bypasses are open we would have had the clearance but still may have required wenching in one place. Overall Eagle Rock was a good challenge and I would attempt this route again. Allow some time for this trail and have a full tank of gas. The trail took us almost 5 hours to complete. Lockers are recommended to avoid wenching.

A great trail. A good challenge for a stock Jeep Rubicon.
