As of April 2017 Bennett Mountain is an out and back trail that connects to the Herndon Loop. Bennett is very rocky making it a challenging climb either direction and a great test of bike handling on the downhills.

There are numerous optional lines to choose from to ride more advanced features such as rock rides, ladder bridges, and drops.
