The Eagle Forks Trailhead is located near the Eagle Forks Campground where East Eagle and Wild and Scenic Eagle Creek meet. Parking for the small trailhead is limited in a widend area just before the campground. This trailhead accesses the Martin Bridge Trail #1878 from the south, and the trail can also be accessed from the north at the Upper Martin Bridge Trailhead.
The narrow trail weaves in and out along Eagle Creek in the open ponderosa pines and grassy hillsides. The northern part of the trail goes up and around the private lands near Stoddard Reservoir since the Forest Service does not hold a right of way through the private lands.
