Loved this trail. Fairly flat with a little gentle incline, very pretty trail in my opinion. We parked across the street from the fire station and entered onto the PCT to the right of the station. You'll go thru 3 gates along the way. Follow the PCT trail markers for about 3.25 miles and you will see the giant rock formations on your left. The rock is pretty neat. Mother Nature does some amazing things, lol. Not too many bugs, saw lots of squirrels and one coyote, some shade, total length roundtrip 6.5 according to my Fitbit tracker. Enjoy!

Went on this hike yesterday and it was wonderful! The trail is well maintained and no trash at all on the floor or in the bushes. We saw a lot of cows grazing and even came across a few cows that were on the trail with us! We only saw a few other hikers on the trail so that was a plus! Took plenty of pictures once we got to eagle rock. This was a great hike for all skill levels.

Great hike on the PCT to Eagle Rock (ER). GPS recorded 7.01 RT miles and 1,196 ft. elevation gains! The first couple of miles on the trail had abundance of poison oak before trekking on the open range Mesa! The Santa Ana winds were prevalent at ER! The views leading up to ER and on ER were breathtaking!
