Features River/Creek

The roads to the Dry Lake and Horse Creek Trailheads are open all year.

Need to Know

The 17 miles of trails around Cape Mountain were designed to be shared by horses and runners. Thus, for foot traffic, these trails are wide, gently-graded, brush free, and easy to follow. There are trail maps at the major trail junctions (these are set high so someone on a horse can read them—runners may have to stretch to read them). Just remember to practice good trail etiquette and yield the trail to horses.

Description

The most direct access to the Berry Creek Trail is from the Horse Creek Trailhead. From there, the trail descends along a ridge and then down through several gentle switchbacks to a crossing of Berry Creek. This crossing is a rock-hop or big jump in all but the wettest weather. After the crossing, the trail climbs for a short distance to end at a junction with the Nelson Ridge Trail #1329 and the Wapiti Trail #1329.9. The Berry Creek Trail is typically followed as a loop around Cape Mountain starting from the Dry Lake Trailhead.
