Great challenging trail with in the first 3 miles from Juniper Point. Lots of ups and downs. The first hill you go down is Monkey Butt Hill. We laughed at it going in. Coming out, there wasnt much laughing. Thought i was going to have to crawl.  It was a little challenging to find the trail head at Cedar Buyou Marina. It is at the front gate before getting into the marina. Trail well marked except in this area. Trail was in great shape. Did see a few people on the trail, day and overnighters. The trail is covered well with trees in this first 6 mile section. I heard the Paw Paw trail head entrance is a little more open and more flat terrain. Planning on this trail entrance soon and try to get to Eagles Roost again. This would be a great weekend get away with an overnight stay. I believe there are about 6 camp sites on the trail between  Juniper Point and Eagles Roost with fire rings set up. We enjoyed the trail and cant wait to get back in the woods.
