The Eagle Ridge Trail begins at the trailhead and goes to the right, down to a swamp then up the ridge to give great views of Discovery Passage and Vancouver Island. This is about 30 minutes hiking from your car to the viewpoint on Eagle Ridge. You can also access the Eagle Ridge Trail by driving to the end of Leishman Road at Copper Bluffs. Lieshman Road runs off the far end (west end) of North Gowland Harbour Road.
Due to their more-remote access, these two trails are usually very quiet places, not hiked as heavily as other trails such as Chinese Mountains, Morte Lake, and Beeches Mountain trails.
