Overview

This is a great 10k loop that takes you on a tour of the best of Beaver Creek Mountain. The trail runs through stands of aspen and pine trees, across some of Beaver Creeks iconic ski runs, along the creek and more.

Runner Notes

Some of the singletrack section crossing ski runs can get really tall grass which can hide the contour of the trail. There are a few water bars with rock crossings on parts of the trail. Watch your step.

Description

This run starts on the Back Lawn of Beaver Creek next to the Centennial Express Chair Lift. Start by running towards the Buckaroo Express Gondola. At the gondola, turn right heading uphill on the dirt road. Take your first left heading back underneath the gondola. Stay left under the gondola and cross the road via the pedestrian bridge. Loop around the bridge onto Buddy's Way trail.

Take Buddy's Way trail uphill to Aspen Glade Trail. Buddy's Way trail is a gradual climb along the eastern hillside of Beaver Creek. You'll encounter a few switchbacks on singletrack through a stand of aspens before getting on a fire road behind a bunch of homes.

Aspen Glade trail will start at the top of Buddy's Way just past a park bench on the left of the trail. This section of trail takes you on a bunch of switchbacks through a stand of Aspens along the eastern boundary of Beaver Creek Mountain. This is the steepest section of the trail. Aspen Glade will top out just past Allies Cabin on Cinch.

Run downhill on Cinch for just over 1000 feet to the start of Allie's Way on the left side of the road.

Allie's Way will traverse the front side of Beaver Creek Mountain on a rolling singletrack. You'll cross about 7 ski runs before you get to the end of Allie's Way at Dally. Allie's Way is approximately 1.3 miles.

When Allie's Way ends on Dally Road, cross the road and follow the singletrack down towards the creek and over a foot bridge across the creek. Climb the bank of the creek on the singletrack and turn left to go uphill. Follow the road uphill for a few hundred feet before making a sharp right onto Village to Village Trail.

The Village to Village Trail section is approximately a mile of relatively flat doubletrack mostly covered by trees. At the end of Village to Village Trail, you'll follow Stack It and Lost Buck trails on a 1.5-mile descent back to the Base Area. Cross the Skier Bridge next to the bottom of the Strawberry Park Lift back to the start.

Flora & Fauna

This loop will take you through the aspen glades on the eastern hillside and the main mountain. More aspens and pine trees cover the Village to Village Trail on the western hillside. Wildflowers abound on the ski runs as you descend strawberry park.
