A good way to climb to Village Trail from Avon

Nick Wilder

Overview

Description

Start next to the Lower Beaver Creek Express lift and follow doubletrack up a ski run with some switchbacks. It soon switches to mostly singletrack and enters aspen forest for most of the way.

It's a good way to reach Village to Village Trail. This is also a great way down at the end of your day, if you parked at the Elk or Bear lot.
