This 5.5-mile loop inside Boone Fork Recreation Area can be pieced together with some trails that bisect the main loop. The doubletrack portion of the loop (about three and a half miles) has at least two other sections of singletrack. Stronger riders may combine Buckeye Trail for a figure-eight ride. Scenery: A circumnavigation of the bowl of Benson Hollow, with an exceptional display of creeping cedar.
