Trail shared by Markk Knowles

A fun, rocky bench-cut trail connecting the bottom of Man With a Van and the top of Perma Grin.

Description

Benchmark can and should be ridden in either direction. It's a great way to finish a riding session by riding down Man with a Van to Benchmark and finally Perma Grin back to your car.

Benchmark itself cuts in and wraps around the center elevation of a steep hill. This undulating trail full of large, pedal-grabbing rocks and tight turns riding parallel to the steep embankment requires a bit of keen attention.
