This trail is used predominantly by mountain bikers so this nice walk was sometimes interrupted by the need to jump out of the way. The 300+ foot ascent happens mostly in climbing the first ridge but after that it's a comfortable series of rolling walks, largely through wooded glens. And it smelled fabulous kind of like wood baking in the sun.

There are a few hikes with trailheads in the immediate area. You'll want to park in the section of the lot furthest from the Eagle Ice Rink and Pool building to find the Haymaker trailhead.

Great quick trail. Needs more signs. Sometimes is not very easy to know where you are and where you are going.

We did this as a morning hike before flying out of Eagle. The trail is easy to find although I would probably give it an easy rather than moderate rating as it was mostly flat. This seems like it would be more entertaining to mountain bike.Overall it was okay, took us about 70 minutes to do the loop.

3/5 for hiking, 5/5 for bikes. Haymaker provides a wonderful view of the town of Eagle, CO as you ascend the slope. The trail is primarily for mountain biking. The tracks are well defined with many challenging curves, not for your average biker! Hiking wise, the ascent is not bad at all and the trail short. For people on foot, I would recommend it for travelers looking for a quick foot trip as they pass through town or runners and their pets.
