Some of Berry's finest trails; good mix of long climbs and technical downhills.

Overview

This loop connects debatably the best trails that Berry has to offer. The ride starts at the trailhead for the House o' Dreams, which has parking at the Friendship dorm.

Description

Follow the gravel road a few miles up the mountain, which is a long gradual climb. This first climb is part of Hurtin' Gator and the House o' Dreams climb. At the top is the House o' Dreams, a highlight of Berry. There is a nice view of the college and surrounding countryside, so soak it in before you begin the downhill.

If you go past the house to the swing set, there is a sign that says "Bike Trail." Follow this trail for a while, it contains some technical, rocky downhill. This segment is the House o' Dreams downhill.

At the bottom, there is a three-way fork; immediately take the sharp left to go downhill for a mile or so on a fire road. This segment is part of a trail called The Post. Once you get to the black gate, take a right onto the singletrack Reservoir Connector and a right at the fork. This goes downhill and meets up at the reservoir.

Take a left onto the reservoir path (Mountain Goat) and follow it until you get on the paved road past the Old Mill. Follow the road until you get to the Friendship dorm. This completes the loop.
