General Description

Benmore Trail is a 6 mile, moderately difficult trail that begins at an elevation of 1,800 feet. The trailhead is located in the Pine Mountain area at the junction of Benmore Creek and Eel River adjacent to Road #20N01. The trail starts in a Douglas fir, oak timber stand at the Pine Mountain Trailhead and passes through Montgomery Glade with good views of Hull Mountain. The trail crosses Benmore Creek twice and passes through a meadow before changing to madrone and manzanita in the lower elevations near the Eel River. Horseback riding and backpacking permitted.

Directions from Ukiah: Travel 6 miles north on US Hwy. #101, turn right (east) onto California Hwy#20 and travel for 5 miles. Turn onto County Road #240 and travel 23 miles northeast to the junction of Benmore Creek and Eel River. This is where the trailhead is.
