“A great 5k loop from Beaver Creek Village with beautiful singletrack and views of the village.”— Jeremy Gross
The route features gradual climbing out of the village for the first mile. Then about .4 miles of steeper climbing on the switchbacks through the Aspen Glade trail. The rest of the loop is mostly downhill back across the mountain and down to the village.
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 side of the trail. This section of trail takes you on a bunch of switchbacks through a beautiful section 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.
Follow Cinch downhill past the top of the Buckaroo Express Gondola and the Highlands Chair. After the Highlands Chair, continue on the road to the left and pass underneath the chair. Soon after going under the chair, you'll jump back on the singletrack to the left side of the road. This is Village Loop which will take you back down to the base of the Ski Area. If you prefer, you can stay on the road instead of the singletrack.
