Heading south off of Berry Creek
, you'll almost instantly cross Berry Creek itself and gain a shelf that rises steeply above the creek. Switchback steeply up, then lazily down on this shelf to an intersection with Owl Peak Trail
This cutoff provides easy access to Owl Peak Trail
in all of its backcountry glory and is nestled between Elk Ridge to the east and the gentle slopes of Forellen Peak (9,715') to the west.
