The Eagle Ridge Trail is a 4.3 mile out and back hike featuring a beautiful waterfall and amazing views. The hike takes place in a gorgeous forest setting and is great for families and all skill levels. Dogs and horses are allowed on trail.

The Eagle Ridge Trail is open year-round. This trail does have a significant elevation gain at the end, so make sure all party members are comfortable with hiking uphill. The trail is part of a larger Genoa Trail system. The Eagle Ridge Trail is shared by hikers, runners, horse back riders, and mountain bikers.
