Description

Bear left at the junction of Eagle Wind and Little Thompson Overlook trails. The trail contours north along a steep-faced hogback. Adjust your suspension wide open as this trail makes for a rocky, bumpy mile. Not worth riding by itself, but if you're at Rabbit Mountain you might as well warm up on Little Thompson Overlook before taking a spin on Eagle Wind.

The Little Thompson Overlook is a short climb and DH loop but worth its views.
