Trail Maintenance Notes: Well signed, clear and blazed. There is no Red and White Trail anymore. Red/White trails closed in August of 2016 and rerouted lower down Wheeler Mountain Road 3/4 of a mile. Trail is now nearly 2 miles to the Eagle Rock and does not have difficult scrambling up ledges like the old trail.

Comments
Comments: Nice hike and the foliage is a peak peak peak. The views from the upper slabs at the top of the cliffs towards Lake Willoughby, Pisgah, Bald, Burke and the nearby wind farm were just out of this world. We went later in the after so it was not too crowded and easily found a parking place. We did pass by a good number of wearing hikers that had no problem violating social distancing when wearing their special cloth face coverings and happy to chat?>????! Everyone respectful and nice, yah people are trying hard and old habits are hard to break. This hike was great. We had hoped to hike Bald but the Westmore Mountain Challenge with 140 people participating were headed up Bald by the time we got there and a volunteer recommended this hike. We are glad he did. Thanks Barb for tagging along.
