Did the Balsam loop but continued on the Pine Hill West trail to climb Eagle Mountain. Saw a few coyotes near the top of Eagle.

Can do a nice loop, lean too is if you stay on the trail to the right. It's been at least a year since I've gone but if you loop you get to the top of the mountain and there are small area's to see the senery if not cloudy.
