Bennie Creek - Trail #071

Contributed by ranchez

From the western trailhead on the Nebo Loop (GPS position N. 39.952055 W. 111.674722), the trail winds uphill through forests and meadows. The trail joins the Loafer Mountain trail for 0.1 miles after the intersection with the Loafer Mountain trail (N. 39.952972 W. 111.641666) before continuing east, where it follows a small stream downhill towards Birdseye, ending at the eastern trailhead (N. 39.941916 W. 111.610083).

Directions:

Option 1: From I-15, take the North Payson/Benjamin exit (currently exit #254; after autumn 2004 the exit number will change to #250). Travel south on Main Street to 100 North and turn left (east). Continue east to 600 East and turn right (south) for approximately 3 1/2 miles to the mouth of Payson Canyon, the beginning of the Mount Nebo National Scenic Byway (Nebo Loop road, #015). This is the most popular access - from the western trailhead along the Nebo Loop, 8 miles south of Payson. The trailhead is marked with a sign and there is room for parking on both sides of the road.

Option 2: From the east side of the Mount Nebo area, there is a trailhead a few miles west of Highway 89 in the town of Birdseye. Signs indicate where to turn off the highway, and the road soon turns into a dirt road that crosses private land before reaching the trailhead.
