Eagle Rock Loop (11/13/15, 12:12:13PM)
Started at Winding Stairs trailhead at about noon on Friday, left going clockwise, made it to the southern end of the Athens Big Fork trail about 4:30, made camp and got up Saturday to head north crossing all 6 mountains. made camp just a mile or two past the Athens Big Fork trailhead on the Little Missouri Trail. Got up Sunday and got back to the Winding Stairs Trailhead by 1:30pm, great trip, weather was fantastic. Should have split the Athens Big Fork trail into two days, that was pretty rough to do in one day.
