Description

A beautiful trail coming down from the House o' Dreams with a few good views. You can spot the Berry Reservoir if you're vigilant! Some features might be difficult for beginners but nothing you can't walk around. All and all, probably one of the best trails on the Berry campus!

Legend has it that this is the trail where Martha Berry discovered her love of mountain biking. The trail starts at the top of the power lines that go to the House o' Dreams. To find it, start at the big clearing directly in front of the house and follow the tree line west (right, if the house is to your back) until you're under the power lines.

The trailhead is at the top of the power line clearing. After starting, you'll have a short technical section that dead ends into another trail with a little drop-off. Turn left onto this new trail and follow it for perhaps 200 yards. When the trails starts going up the hill, be on the lookout on your left. Maybe 100 yards after it starts going up the hill, you'll want to take the singletrack on your left.

Immediately after turning onto the singletrack, you can either go over or around the fallen tree. Follow this more technical singletrack until it dead ends into another trail just like before. Again, you'll want to turn left onto the new trail, and follow it for the remainder of the ride.

The last section is very steep and rocky. Be sure not to get too much speed and be ready to put the breaks on, especially on your first ride. The more familiar you get with this trail, the faster you can take it. Finally, the trail ends with a dead end onto a gravel road. Turn left on this road to go back to the House of Dreams Road.
