It even climbs up to the top of a high ridge, where a skier can spot the Beaver River to the south, the Cloquet River to the north, and, sometimes, a bald-eagle or two! This trail travels through poplar growth areas, wooded wetlands, and recently clear-cut areas giving off an alpine-like feel. There is also a cut-off trail along Eagle Ridge Loop for those skiers who want to take the big hill off of the high ridge again.  This cut-off trail can also be skied in both directions.
