Description

The trails at Little Bennett Regional Park can be ridden in various ways, but this is a good sampler to get you started. Both wet and dry, it has a ton of fast and fun areas. Dry, it can be super fast and wet, it has some sloppy areas that get beat up but create some fun situations.

Little Bennett is primarily singletrack but there are a few rocky sections and some gravel roads. There are a few parking areas with connector trails from each. Try starting at different areas to mix it up a little.The area is open to horses and hikers, so both need to be respected. There is also a hiking/running-only section that should be respected as well.
