    Great trails once you find them. Key is to park at Summerlin Mesa Park and bike north on sidewalk about 1/2 mile until you come to a fenced drainage culvert. Bike the dirt road just to the right of the culvert about 1/2 mile. The Benchmark/Perma Grin single track loop heads west and then south. Look for the Benchmark single track on the bench of the mountain. Ride is a lot of fun and just the right length for a 30-40 minute ride.

    Great ride with good technical sections, dry and dusty.

    No parking, no signs. Not good for an out of town person with very limited time. Didn't get to ride because of a lack of signs and parking.

    Just heads up, not sure when those directions where put in, but they now lead you to a gated community. The guard was not amused to see my truck with a couple bikes piled in back pulling up. Your best bet it to go to Mesa Park (5401 Mesa Park dr) an head to the northwest corner. From there you got about a mile of construction truck road till you reach the trail.

    A pretty decent trail but really needs some signage. First time there and the local bike shop told me to always take the rights at every Y. Apparently they were building new trails because about 1 or 2 miles into one of the hard to keep on the path sections, the trail just ended at a pile of trail working tools. Wasn't real fun having to back track all that again. I'm sure the regulars know this trail good but for us first timers, it can be a little tricky figuring it out. Once back on the main trail, it was fast and fun with only a few questionable intersections. If in the area, give it a try but would suggest riding with a regular.
