This track covers what used to be the Bennie Creek Trail AND the Bennie Creek Cutoff. The trails have been combined by the Forest Service.
The Bennie Creek Trail is a nice trail through a mixed environment including aspens, open meadow and coniferous forest. The trail follows Bennie Creek which flows year-round most years. There are some cool beaver dams along the way which make nice, still pools in the creek.
The trail starts by climbing a gentle grade, that gradually steepens as you reach the high point. The trail descends in a similar fashion steeply at first, then it eases up in the middle of the descent before diving back into a steeper grade at the end of the trail.
