Terrain at Camp Eagle
There will be a change to the race loops from previous years with the elimination of the bridge after Armadillo. (It washed away last fall). We will post new maps by June 2019. The distance will be roughly the same.
Interactive Map- View map – Online map of Camp Eagle’s trails and Jeep roads with mileage, elevation profiles, and multiple underlaying map options.
Camp Eagle boasts a sprawling 1400 acres of the Texas Hill country; a spring-fed crystal clear river pumping 1.2 million new gallons of water every day. Tackle miles of pristine single track, clean limestone cliffs with bouldering, top rope, and lead sport climbing options.
Backpacking and hiking in Texas may not be well known, but Competitor magazine declared Camp Eagle as “Texas’ best adventure destination.” With 1400 acres of rugged Hill Country along with natural caves, a quarter mile of 150′ tall limestone cliff, and 1.5 miles of the crystal clear Nueces River, Camp Eagle has more natural resources jammed into one space than most camps across the nation.
The trails will be open for pre-riding Sunrise to Sunset- $10 daily fee for pre-riding. Please sign in at the main office when you arrive at Camp. There will be no overnight stays during the pre-ride weekends. Race maps and Pre-ride maps are here
