Agua Tibia full loop trail with an extension on the Cutca trail up to the Eagle Crag summit. Very difficult day hike, fairly strenuous overnight backpack with a place to camp just past the cutoff for the Eagle Crag Summit. There is NO water on the trail.

Did this as a backpacking trip with Amelia. Up the Dripping Springs side and to a small camp site past the cutoff to Eagle Crag's summit. This trail may have the best views in SD. Eagle Crag's summit is spectacular. Beware that the Palomar Mcgee trail are quite overgrown and definitely a cross country route. No water on this trail either so be prepared.
