This trail is the main artery through Little Bennett Regional Park. It's an old road that's been busted up and converted to gravel. You will still see the old pavement in some places. It crosses a pretty stream (over a bridge) and connects many other trails in this park. Little Bennett Park was established in 1962, on property that the county purchased. It was originally farmland, and included several small communities. Although the forest has grown up significantly since then, along some portions of the trail, you will still see remnants of this past in the form of old fences and rusted antique farm equipment.Show more

Gentle terrain and easy hike suitable for the whole family The Kingsley trail is an easy yet very enjoyable trail which will take you the Kingsley school house. The trail is hard packed gravel with no substansial elevation changes. This would be suitable for the whole family. It is approximatelt .6 miles each way. The trail ends near the school house which has a small picnic area and very cool swinging bridge over the nearby creek. From here you could continue your journey on one of several other trails that intersect this area. Built in 1893 in an area known locally as "Froggy Hollow", the Kingsley school house served the community until it closed in 1935, when the great depression forced families to leave the area to look for work. Of the late 19th century one room school houses still existing in Montgomery County, the Kingsley Schoolhouse is one of the few that remains in an entirely unaltered state.Show more

This trail is a gem in the middle of a suburban area. It combines several separate trails into a loop: Beaver Valley, Mound Builder, Bennett Ridge, Woodcock Hollow, and the campsite loop, to create a hilly trail through this forested park. Most sections of the trail are on natural surfaces, although the campsite loop is a hard surface. The Mound Builder section of the trail will take you past several large anthills built by the Appalachian moundbuilder ant (Formica exsectoides) that are quite interesting. However, in this area, do not stop for more than the time it takes to snap a photo, because the ants can bite. As long as you keep moving you should be fine. Little Bennett Park was established in 1962, on property that the county purchased. It was originally farmland, and included several small communities. Although the forest has grown up significantly since then, along some portions of the trail, you will still see remnants of this past in the form of old fences and rusted, antique farm equipment.
