Part 1 begins at the top of Benson Grade
and rolls out along moderately rooty trail into the forest.
The trail drops slightly into the forest and then follows a fairly straight course into an extended stand of hemlocks. As the trail approaches an intersection with an old doubletrack, it becomes very twisty. Take note of your speed as it will be hard to fit your handlebars through at times.
The technical nature of the trail continues past the intersection for a bit and then mellows out to standard legacy cross-country style trail all the way to an intersection with Green Loop and Two Track Alley
