Description

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.
