TRAIL DESCRIPTION

Outside of Bailey, along the way to Kenosha Pass, lies the Ben Tyler Trail. This trail is a long trek with a sizeable amount of elevation gain. The trail surface is rocky for most of the way and offers a a few great views out to the sides. Passing through meadows and weaving through several groups of trees, it eventually feeds to the top which is wide expanse of brush and grass. It’s a good place to eat a snack and take a break, or if you a feeling a bit more adventurous, camp out below the stars.
