Not sure how to rate. Found out today it’s not year round. It’s open April-September. Looking forward to going during the season to check out this trail with the dogs.

Beautiful hike through the wild flower covered rolling hills in the Black Butte lake area late April. There is no shade so I would not recommend this hike in the summer or in the heat of the day.

Good hike. Trail is visible and not difficult to follow. Minor hills and great views. Trail can be narrow at times and seems untraveled recently.

Don't do this in the summer. Too hot. Wait until early spring or later in the fall. The view from the top of Eagle Pass at the right time of year is beautiful.

We ride the trails there since years. Easy access from the staging area on the south west side. There are many trails from easy to some steep inclines. Perfect for conditioning of your horse. Stay on the trails, many squirrel holes and rattle snakes!!!
