Overview [Suggest Changes]

Berry Creek is a short loop that drys out early in the spring and is easy to access right off of the interstate near Edwards. Climbing on forest service roads and then descending on singletrack, the ride has a few short segments that are moderately technical and steep. During 2015, VVMBA and USFS are decommissioning segments that follow old eroded doubletracks and replacing with new singletrack.

This is the standard course for one of the Vail summer races series.
Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

Take the Edwards exit and head west on Beard Ck Road towards the Shah Cancer Center on the north side. Park at the bottom of the Forest Service access road or proceed a short distance up and park at the bottom of Berry Creek Trail.

Ride up FR 774 (Berry Creek Rd) for approximately 0.8 miles and turn left on FR 780 (Edmunds Powerline Rd) and continue climbing.

Continue up FR 780 until approximately 2.1 miles from the ride start and look for Berry Creek Trail leaving the road to the left just before a sharp right turn on FR 780. Descend back to start.

At about 3 miles, a short, stiff climb returns you to the ridgeline; take a right at the top of the climb and continue to a small knoll. The trail splits in a Y at a small campsite with an old doubletrack leading right; make sure to take the left fork and stay on the singletrack.

For an even shorter version of this ride, or to add a half loop for more distance, at approximately 1.3 miles from the ride start, after cresting a saddle, you can turn left and connect to the bottom half of the descent.
