This is just a really cool, cardio trail that could use some serious volunteering and some more biker traffic. I'd be happy to sign sections of the trail if I had access to the signs.
Also, take extra water on 90+° days. I went through a full 3 liter hydration pack with 7 miles to go on Saturday. I had accidentally stored an extra water bottle in the pack, but an injury or a shattered wheel that far out with that little water isn't anything to scoff at.

Thanks for the heads up, signage on Berryman has a couple of flavors - Silver Diamonds and/or OT markers.
The Ozark Trail Association and GORC have been working to improve Berryman over the past couple of years.
The Western section of the loop was rebuilt in the last few years. Western Berryman is clockwise from Berryman Campground to the Northern interconnection with the Courtois section.
Brazil creek has been a poplular equestrian access point. We will have some crews in the area in mid September to see what can be done to repair the damages.
Water - Given Berryman's loop format, it is easy to stage water at the road crossings. Eastern Berryman is the long side without access to decent water. I usually will drop water off at the crossings of Shirley Ridge and Floyd Tower road. West Berryman offers that sweet water from Beecher Spring Artesian Well.
Please join us in September as we take on the EASTERN BERRYMAN reroutes. http://ozarktrail.co...hp?OutingId=550
