Classic Central Oregon singletrack and the most direct route to the Lower Whoops Trail

Katy Ryan

Description

Note: Ben's has been designated as uphill-only from the trailhead (as mapped).
Ben's begins from Phil's trailhead parking lot. It's nicely marked, and begins on the parking lot itself. It's a beautiful smooth and flowy trail in the heavily forested Deschutes, and usually has some decent bike traffic.

Perhaps 1-2 small switchbacks with a few rocks that might challenge a new rider. The trail connects to many others in the Phil's trail system.

Cold, perfect, morning. Nice easy ascent. The fire road at the top that parallels Lower Whoops is kinda boring, but worth the slog. 7.3mi — 1h 15m

Forecasting the weather...

For a one-way uphill trail (presumably to get you to the top of Phil's) , this trail is surprisingly gentle on the legs. Jul 18, 2015
