Trail Benchmark
Permagrin and benchmark are two separate trails. This one is benchmark. When you get to the top of benchmark you meet up with the top of TK and the top of Permagrin. TK runs down the bottom of the valley, permagrin runs on the north side of the valley and benchmark runs along the south side of the valley.

Nice trail. Make sure you don't lose focus while drooling over the stunning mansions next to the trail. Don't think there is really a primary direction, both ways is fine.

Great cross country trail, just enough technical, combined with round the outside, outer alice, and Perma grin

The swoopy downhill section is called Permagrin. And don't be fooled. The swoops may not be drop ins. But they a very 'V' like. 5' to 15' 45 degree down and immediate up. Zero G at the top 2 G at the bottom. Fun but will wear out your hands and arms if you don't use super proper riding technique.

So i crashed this morning just as the sun came out...
Started riding faster when I could turn my headlight off, (5:30ish-AM)
forgot about the blind right curve after one of the last big rollers.... Grabbed way too much front brake before the top of the roller without shifting my weight back. OTB, 3 foot pop UP then down 10feet ... I'm "ok" but i'll be marking that as a hazard next ride out. signs of other crashes there (bar endcap found and sunglass parts)

When I rode this trail there was a sign which said the name is Perma Grin - Is this the same trail? Anyone know?

This trail was named by the trail builder. Locals have renamed a portion Permagrin. So it is signed Benchmark for the southern section and Permagrin for the northern section.
