Recommended use Wednesdays and Saturdays due to mountain bike closure. If you choose to run on a day that bikes are allowed, it is recommended to pay attention to the direction of bike traffic, which is posted and run against bike traffic. This makes visibility for both parties better. Always be courteous to everyone using the trail.
The Benjamin Loop connects to the Canyon Loop
via the Benjamin Trail Link
. This trail is the favorite section of the Betasso Preserve
This trail features hard packed dirt with some exposed roots and rocks. This singletrack trail climbs out of the valley to the rim via switchbacks. The trail continues on the ridge offering amazing views and descends in a similar series of switchbacks; the elevation gain is subtle.
