Eagle rock was one of the first areas in New Brunswick to be climbed. It was first explored by climbers in the mid 70ís with a few lines in the 5.1 to 5.5 grade that may be a little stiff by todayís standards.

Located on the right side of highway 7 coming from Fredericton, itís between the Irving in Welsford and the first exit in to Grand Bay-Westfield.

The trail is currently marked with orange flagging tape and will lead to the great roof.
