Description: The Brightsdale Forest Management Unit, site of the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center, is about five miles northwest of Lanesboro on a township road that runs west off State Highway 250.

This 900-acre management unit was names after an old hydroelectric plant located on the site along the north branch of the Root River.

Highlights: The unit features an easy interpretive trail with handicapped accessible parking that drops to the Root River State Trail and climbs again to give a forest management educational tour of the woods. Cross-country ski trails serve as great hiking trails in the summer.
