Trail Kerry'd Away
Fantastic climbing trail! stunning views as it winds through the lush forest. while Vedder is shuttleable, if you want to bike up I highly recommend Sunnyside Up and then Kerry'd Away. Takes you up to the top of 2 Cents. These two climbing trails are WAY more rewarding than climbing the forest road. It's a long haul and a lung buster, but well worth it.

Beats riding up the road! Excellent climb trail, the work pays off! Makes Vedder a better MB destination!

Trail Kerry'd Away
Excellent climb trail! Lengthy, but not punishing. Lots of work, and even some creativity, impressive on a climb trail. Not sure I counted 17 bridges, but I probably lost track. It helps to count down the switch backs: I think there's about thirty. And before you know it, there's two cents!

Trail Sunnyside Up
Super fun flow trail for a newbie! I would recommend climbing UP this trail from the parking lot instead of taking the forest road. It's not very steep and would be way more enjoyable than the road. The road suuucked (but again, I'm new at this)

Trail Dilemma
Fun trail though mis-labeled IMHO, should be double black. Big gap jumps, last descent is steep rocky loose and gnarly, all with consequences. Even though there are ride-arounds, this trail is a solid double black for the features when compared to other BC trails.

Yes north side has some steep sections, rocky with gentle slop south side. Went from north side back to south side on atv (Polaris 700)

Starts off fairly flowy with a few options hits, ends with a heavily erroded rocky/gravel chute. Good for a warmup lap or easy cool down.

Totally baffled as to why people ride so far on such poor roads to go down a few feet of unremarkable single track called the Den.

At the beginning of the trail from the second parking spot its something to climb i see 3 or 4 dirts bikes got to walk beside there bike to hard on there machine to do i guess, but beside the hill the trail was nice to do for dirt bike for atv's to much pot hole.

Nice trail, pretty tight with bushes, a couple minor technical root drops that you want to be hanging over your rear tire for.

Riding this downhill on a rigid 90’s mtb was fine. Hard to find the trailhead marker starting off the service road. It’s the left most trail with a number of trails starting at the same location.

Very Rocky, steep climb with couple tight turns from the North. Can't speak for the South as we bailed part way up from North.

Trail Kerry'd Away
There's a tree fallen across the trail near the bottom, maybe 5-10 minutes in. It's very visible, I don't think anyone would accidentally run into it, just a minor nuisance. Otherwise, the trail was damp and grippy most of the way, but patches of mud and slick areas. Perfectly rideable though. This was my first time climbing it. Not as hard as I thought, quite enjoyable.

Magic trail. Wicked flow, cool features, some nice techy steeps - great all-round single black which has it all.

Super loamy trail... easy to slide out when it's wet. Leads straight into femur and is a must ride for vedder.

Way well maintained trial!! Long trail, lots of good bridges. Avoid when wet at there's lot of roots that are slippery when wet. The trail crosses a dirt bike trail and re-entrance is not well marked.

This is the trail that I used to learn how to ride last summer. It is perfect for beginners. I still find it a challenge going up on my bike and even though it is short, it always gives me a good workout!

Trail Kerry'd Away
Five newbies from the Wack rode this trail and LOVED IT! Yes, it is very long, but the scenery is incredible and being fairly new to the sport we were impressed at how rideable it is. Hats off to Kerry (yes he is a real guy) and others that worked tirelessly to make this trail. I am so glad that someone decided to name the trail after him. We will definitely return to the this trail again this summer.

Rode for the first time today. This trail is LONG! Crazy long. It goes on forever. It is a good trail though, lots of variety and some really scenic sections. Postcard quality.

The woodwork is outstanding! Some bridges are over 100 feet. Very well done all around.

mulletator (Jun 26, 2016 at 17:51)
Great trail. Lots of LOAM! Nice steep sections where you are going to slide but the catch berms will be there to keep you on track.

Would not be good in the wet, that loam will turn into crazy slop. Get it while you can, the dirt will not last long.

There's one wood feature about 1/4 down. Steep roller with a small drop after. It looks like a sketchy run out but its all good.

There's no sign at the trail head. The puddles on the access road are bad news. They are full of silt, do not ride in the puddles or you will stop dead and get all wet/muddy.

Hey Dan thanks for trekking up there with me. Glad we found it. Next time up I might take some signage with me and post it properly

I found that the climb to this trail was not as obvious as the map makes it seem. You need to turn off the access road and climb the dirt bike trail "stairway to heaven" to reach the trailhead. It is marked at the top of the descent
