Im a bit dissapointed that eagle peak has directions online. I liked the idea that local climbers needed to get directions through word of mouth - keeps the area quiet. But, someone recently told me they had a bit of an adventure trying to get to the crag using the directions on the eagle peak page so i figured if we are going to have directions to the place they should be the easiest possible.

I didnt know how to add it to the directions section so i'm putting it here.


Take the 8 east to the 79. Take the 79 north. Turn left on Riverside Dr. (this will take you into Descanso). Take a left on Viejas Grade Rd (at the gas station/general store). Take an immediate right on Oak Grove Dr. Then a right on Boulder Creek Rd. - Follow this to the trailhead.

also, you do need an adventure pass but i've never seen any rangers that far out there and have never gotten a ticket out there. dont hold me responsible if you get a ticket but chances are you will be fine.

i think you have your turns backwards. ive been out there plenty of times and its always a left. First left after the right on oak grove. if i remember correctly you cant even make a right on boulder creek rd from oak grove

dude, i live in sherilton valley, about 4 miles down boulder creek road form Oak Grove Road. i drive it every day. Unles you've gone a really screwy way, like missed the immediate right at Perkins onto .oak grove, and instead went up Viejas Grade to where Oak Grove ties Back into it, and made a right there, then for sure you've got to make a left onto Boulder Creek. But if you've done that, you're going a bit out of your way. Best to make that left and immediate right at Perkins.

ahhh. ok now i get you. just a misunderstanding. i have been taking viejas grade up a little farther to oak grove. It looks like it comes to about the same but i'll have to try your way next time.

SO HERES THE FINAL ALTERNATE DIRECTIONS (with a minor change courtesy of tdoughty):

Go east on the 8. Exit onto the 79 and go north. Turn left on Riverside Dr. Turn left on Viejas Grade Rd. and an immediate right on Oak Grove Dr. Follow this to Boulder Creek Rd. and turn right. Follow this to the trailhead.

*i also changed the directions in the original message
