Begins with the Benson Grade Access Road climb, then starts with a relatively flat but slightly rocky single track before snaking it's way along a beautiful brook and mildly rocky trails along with views of Lake Superior. A bit more technical than Green, but another great trail to get started on. Follow the red signs.
