Bender Road Trail

Average Rating:    (3.17 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

The trail starts out with single track winding through some trees. Watch out for the occasional log or two on the path. The climbs are short and not very technical, but do not let that decieve you, the downhill is pretty damn technical. Use extreme caution when you pass the fire pit on the left, there is a forty foot plunge to the left of the next turn!!! The trail opens up at the bottom of Bender road, so you can either huff it up the bender road or have a friend shuttle you and your ride back up to the top! It's all and all a good saturday "Out of Bounds" ride!

Summary:
The trail is back up and running. Its been cleared and the trees have mostly been covered or moved. Its solid and there are some new features. If you've never been though I would recomend being prepared for some decent downhill and do be careful because there is a cliff you could accidentally ride off of towards the end.

Summary:
WOW, talk about some gnarly terrain. This trail starts out really fun minus a few logs. The singletrack goes along a ridge that just seems to get skinnier as you go along. The downhill portions are far out of my repertoire. Those rocks are nasty. Great views up there though.
I'll help on putting in some other stuff. I only live about six miles from there.

Summary:
I rode the trail on 7/27/02 and it was pretty overgrown.It wasen't unrideable and has tons of potential.My friend Mike and I are going to clean the trail this week,then it will be badass. The trail starts out a fairly smooth singletrack, but don't let the begining fool you.Once you get towards the end hang on for the ride.the trail gets horribly rough and steep,all in a good way.(probably not much fun for beginers).once you get to the fire pit on the left, slow down there is a big drop comming up you don't want to go over.the trail ends up at the bottom of bender rd. and once cleaned up will be an awsome trail for a rider who loves super steep ,rough downhills.(FS bikes recomended)

Recommended Route:
the only one
