The Golden Eagle Trail is a 9-mile (14 km) loop trail with a short entrance trail. It starts in the east side of Pine Creek Gorge and features a strenuous climb to pristine mountaintop streams and several outstanding vistas. The trailhead and parking lot are on Pennsylvania Route 414, about 3.5 miles (5.6 km) north of Cammal and 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north of a crossing of the Pine Creek Rail Trail. Because of heavy usage by hikers and the area's fragile ecosystem, overnight camping is prohibited along this trail. The Golden Eagle Trail is featured in 50 Hikes in Central Pennsylvania (2001), by Tom Thwaites, and this accomplished hiking authority states that it "may be the best day hike in Penn's Woods."
