trail climbs moderately following bench creek, 3 miles up take obvious left across creek, up very steep slope, then to top...ride left on a road for 1 mile, just after an old car on right, cross another creek, then follow 2 track downhill on right side of creek, until it turns to single track...fun, fun..when you come to a dirt road, go left on it for 30 yards, then downhill on single track..more fun...finally coming out at Little South Fork Trailhead. Follow dirt road, to pavement. then left for 2 miles, left on paved road for 2 more miles back to trailhead. take lots water/food.

Summary:
Singletrack, singletrack, singletrack, with climbing,
technical, and fast sections. Not for the occational
rider. NO people, beautiful area. Leave yourself 2-3 hours for this sweet ride at a good clip.
No shuttle required,(pure loop).
Have cold beer ready at the end.

Recommended Route:
Good description to find it, but is more complicated,
with potential to get lost. There is a big river
crossing 2/3 of the way through, which is brutal in
the spring when water is high. Best bet, go to White
Pine Touring (park city) and ask the shop boys for
more detailed directions. It's worth your while...

This trail is currently threatened by big development,

Summary:
The trail is great and receives little traffic, maybe to a fault. The trail once you get on top of the ridge requires strong route finding skills. There are many forrest service roads and game paths, along with open grazzing for cows make some trail look like trails. Beside that awesome in fall 20 miles of Aspen and poplar groves beautiful.

Recommended Route:
The route describe is best.
