Benham Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is an enjoyable walk on a well-graded trail through beautiful ponderosa pine forest to the summit of Bill Williams Mountain. The Benham Trail is not shown on the topographic map but is easy to follow as it wanders up the gentle slope to the west through an open ponderosa pine and Gambel oak forest. Gambel oaks are deciduous and average only 10 to 20 feet in height, with slender gray trunks.

Gambel oaks are deciduous and average only 10 to 20 feet in height, with slender gray trunks. About 1.5 miles from the trailhead, the trail crosses a gully then crosses through an ugly but short section of logged forest. Shortly afterward, the trail enters a dense section of Gambel oaks, where there are a few Douglas-firs. Among the Gambel oaks there are a few much larger Emory and Arizona White oaks."
