Bennie to Beaver Dam Loop
This loop is reserved for strong, conditioned riders with good downhill skills and a sense of adventure. Riding from an altitude of 5400 feet at Birdseye in Spanish Fork Canyon, you'll climb to 8400 over the top of Payson Canyon, then drop down Beaver Dam Canyon and roll out along Nebo Creek Total climbing on this 22.7-mile loop will be around 3500 vertical feet. Definitely strenuous aerobic. Advanced technical, but can be managed by intermediate-technical riders who are strong and adventurous.
