Splendid Idaho creek trail.

Can be snow-covered, December through March.

Description

Bender Creek Trail is an old motorcycle trail. It has a number of rollers and banked turns, which have been burned in by motorcycles. The area recently burned and is currently closed to motorized users, so it is nice and quiet out there.

The trail can be loose in the fall and there are some deep water crossings in the spring. That said, be prepared to get your feet a little wet.

There are lots of connector trails nearby that can be used to make this run into a loop.
