Mountain Biking Berryman
#4 of 158 mountain bike trails in Missouri
#228 in the world
Missouri's finest single track. In 1998 Bike Magazine did an article and called it the best singletrack East of the Rockies and West of the Appalachians. That about sums it up.
Most people start at the Berryman Campground and go clockwise. About 2/3 of the way into the trail is Brazil Creek Campground and a prime place to break. A mix of climbs and downhills all on great singletrack. Go prepared for wicked fun.

From ST. LOUIS take I-44 west for 1.5 hours. From SPRINGFIELD take I-44 east for 3 hours. Exit at Cuba, MO and then take Hwy 19 to Steelville. Then take the exit off of Hwy 8 for two miles. Turn north onto County Road 207 (formerly FR2266), hopefully the roadsign is still there. Go about 1.5 miles to the Berryman Campground. The trailhead at is on the opposite side of the road from the parking lot.
