Mount Benson has a few different trails that lead to the summit. The one we chose was red on the map and the most difficult, but direct route. During the time we went it was icy in spots making it more difficult to make the hike up. We took a moderate trail on the way down. Once you reach the map navigating up is fairly easy.
