Route Description for Conejo Well and Eagle Mountains Trail
Sections of the Conejo Well and Eagle Mountains Trail are poorly marked, and so care should be taken when attempting to not get lost. It is highly recommended that you bring some sort of mapping tool to help aid you along the route.
Having left your vehicle at the parking lot, make your way north towards the Cottonwood Campground. At the northern section of the campground, take the trail that leads to the northeast. The trail will gradually incline in elevation as it takes you northeast. With Eagle Mountain visible to your east, the trail will then cross a stream that might have water in it. After crossing the stream, the route veers in an easterly direction through a wide valley with steep inclines on either side.
After making your way through the valley, the Conejo Well and Eagle Mountain Trail will veer sharply to the south. Here the elevation will climb rapidly, and the path will become rather steep. The trail will soon reach a plateau where the Conejo Well and Eagle Mountain Trail ends. Enjoy the views and take a break before retracing your steps back towards the parking lot.
