      Bennington Lake trails weave in and out of the main loop trail, sometimes returning, sometimes leading to the nearby Rooks Park or the Diversion Dam.

      All of the trails in this area could be ridden in less than two hours by mountain bike. If you explore off the main loop a little, there are a couple hills that are fun, but nothing resembling technical riding or drops. There are maintenance access roads all around that can be used, but are not accessible by car.

      This land is managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District. Bennington Lake hols water for flood risk management in Walla Walla, and provides recreation for locals and visitors.

      These trails are used by many year around for running, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding, so please be respectful.
