Mountain Biking Ben's Upper

****   Add a review
#72 of 297 mountain bike trails in Oregon
#3,382 in the world

Ben's is about 7 miles long one-way, and is split into basically two portions. The lower portion is all two-way, flowy cross country trail, but the upper section of Ben's is where the action is at! Climb up the gravel road, and drop into the downhill-only upper portion. Get ready for a sick 1.7-mile long section of endless jumps and huge berms.
Flow trail to the max!

    Ben's Upper is actually just a uphill route gravel road/dirt road from Ben's Lower singletrack to Junction post #29. The downhill portion of the ride is Lower Whoops. That is where all the fun is. At the end you can grab another short dirt road to hook up to Phil's, Kent's or other flowing trails leading towards Phil's TH.

    Great Flowing track with lots of shade and technical fun.

    Split the upper and lower sections, as their rating and difficulty are likely to be very different.

    Unquestionably five stars! The XC section is great, but the flow/jump section is off the chain!
