Park near the mill and head north on Echo Dell Road to the old steel bridge that spans Beaver Creek. The lower Vondergreen trailhead will be immediately at the end of the bridge on the right. The Upper Vondergreen Trail begins on the right another 50 yards up Echo Dell Rd from the bridge.
The Upper Vondergreen Trail starts out with a rocky climb. After reaching the top the trail crosses a large steel culvert, turns right onto a flat section, and then turns right again.
From here, you descend a fast yet not steep descent. Toward the bottom the trail combines with a horse trail for a distance, then connects with the Vondergreen Trail
that followed the edge of Beaver Creek.
