Map available online at:
The trail goes up and down, it's only 250 meters to the summit, but you do it several times so total elevation gain for the day is 700 meters or so, making for a workout.
The top of Eagle Hill has great mountain views to the west towards the trans Canada Highway. On the way up there are views of Moose mountain and Cox hill.
It's not a difficult hike and snow clears earlier than higher elevation trails so microspikes should be all that is needed.
Traihead access via Deer Ridge trail or Sibbald Flats trail (can decide at trail map sign at trailhead).
Hwy 1 to Hwy 40. Hwy 40 to Hwy 68 - Sibbald Creek Trail (HWY 68) turn off to Sibbald lake campground, at 3 way junction keep left into day use parking area. There are trail head signs in the area.
You can also get on Hwy 68 right off of Hwy 1 in the Morley area before you reach Hwy40. (See map). THIS IS A DIRT ROAD.
