Spring Lake to Trione-Annadel State Park
Gradually climb over grassy hillsides and through oak woodlands and conifer forests on the east side of Bennett Mountain. This is an extremely popular mountain-biking route that travels along wide, rocky service roads and singletrack trails. Pass lush Ledson Marsh and descend through a conifer forest in the park’s southeast corner. The west- and south-facing slopes can be hot in summer; north- and east-facing slopes are forested. The 2017 Nuns Fire burned through most of the trail corridor except for a few miles of the northernmost section.
