The start of this trail is on private land now, and so there is no way to get to it. If you ride from end to beginning, you'll have to turn around and backtrack. You could feasibly start a bit after the beginning from Bridger Trace, but there is no way to get through to the plateau above Fraser on this trail anymore, since Bridger Trace dead ends at the private property.

Description

Starting from Bridger Terrace, turn left to start Bench Trail, which contours as bench cut, then descends quickly. Keep your speed in check as the end of the trail presents riders with very tight switchbacks. Eventually, Bench Trail spits you out onto Fraser Chickadee.
