Park in front of the Warner Springs Fire Department on the large shoulder of Highway 79. The trailhead is to the right of the fire department. It’s very well marked with a gate and signs.

Very easy hike. The first 1.5 miles is somewhat shaded, then you’re out in the open. Entrance is to the right of the fire station, next to the bridge. Look for the gate. There were cows about half a mile in. Creek was flowing nicely. A great hike!

The trail is definitely more of an easy trail than moderate. There is not much incline to it. But the scenery is breathtaking.

Awesome trail! First few miles are shaded and gradually going uphill with SO MANY BUGS!! Last couple miles are completely unshaded and kinda flat. We recorded 8 miles in total. The rock was cool!

Great hike. Well marked trail and awesome to have some parts shaded but nice breeze as you head over the hill toward the valley. Great views of valley. A little crowded on weekend may be best during the week. Cows at the rock and along the trail made it extra special.

Great hike. More people than I was expecting on a random Monday, but not crowded. Good range of landscapes, small waterfalls still running, the rock is what people say it is. Recommend.

This is now my new favorite trail. From the beginning to about 2.5 miles in you are hiking through the forest along a creek, once out of the forest you are going through narrow dirt paths until you get to open land which is where the rock is. You are gradually going up hill through the forest and then it flattens out up until you get to the rock and you go up a little. Very scenic, very calming. Only negative is there are ALOT of bugs that fly into your face.

The first half was shady, which was nice. The rest of the way is out in the open and flies will swarm around your head the whole time. Great photo op at Eagle Rock!

Very enjoyable hike with lots of scenery. Lots of shade in the beginning and you barely notice the gradual incline

Great trail, lots to see, first half is mostly under shade from the trees and then it is followed by the smooth level trail up until you reach the rock. It’s worth seeing this unique rock.

Fun easy trail! Parked across from the Fire Station on the side of the road. Trail starts on the right side of the station by walking through a gate. I would suggest doing this trail early on a weekday and you’ll have it to yourself! Also go in the morning, makes for great pictures with the sun behind you!

Love this trail! Done it three times. Best to go early. There’s no shade once you get out of the woods/forest.

Beautiful trail, fairly easy. I’d recommend being a hat because after half a mile there is no shade. Parking was very accessible and there wasn’t a crowd.

Hiked to Eagle Rock early today, conditions were excellent, but upon arrival back at the car, a sheriff was driving back and forth in front of the fire station telling everyone over a loud speaker, the trail is closed to hiking except for locals. If one was not from zip code 92086, he would issue them a citation, if they didn’t leave. Everyone I saw on the trail was maintaining a six foot distance with about half wearing masks.
