Trail Ben's Trail
Nice easy climbing trail. I would disagree with a previous poster, that this has no identity. It's a perfect place if you are a novice mtn biker (like my wife). Yes, you can find way more rowdy areas but this place fits a perfect niche in Bend mtb.

Pretty lame section of trails…no real uphill or downhill identity… I would opt for Tumalo Falls or other local trails over the Phil’s area trails

This trail is SO FUN. Great hits and burms to learn on and also push your self a bit. It’s fast and smooth with a easy climb. Lower loop can be done in under 30min the full loop takes about an hour and a half. Upper section is also really smooth with big long burms but no jumps. Have fun!

10/16/2020: Bridge is out for replacement just east of South Fork Trail (.5 mi from Falls). New bridge installation will be done in November. Use road to connect to Skyliners trailhead.

So much fun!
The best trail for new riders. My 7yo rode Phil's twice from right below the black diamond section down to the bottom. Trail is super smooth and has a few rocky sections to keep it interesting.
The locals are super friendly and I very much enjoyed talking with them.

In the little Canyon section, I feel like I remember there being a few small (2-3') drops, but they seemed to have been removed when I rode through yesterday. Disappointing if so.

Counter to what the description says, this is definitively NOT a singletrack, but an access road.
