Overall Benson Park rules in PDF format:
After passing behind the dog park, the trail crosses a bridge over a trickling stream and soon leads to an open meadow. The sound of vehicles soon becomes noticeable as the trail continues alongside Central St. (Rt. 111) with an unmarked trail available to the roadway. Continue left on the main trail and a paved pathway overtakes the dirt trail at approximately 0.5 miles with an intersection to Meadow View available on the left at approximately 0.6 miles.
After heading through a metal gate, the trail continues along Bass Pond on the left. The trail soon intersects with Otter Way. Turn right at the intersection to continue on Haselton Farm Trail. A small foot bridge is crossed with a view of Otter Pond on the left. The trail then intersects with Beaver Path, where you'll want to turn right to continue on Haselton Farm Trail.
At approximately 1.2 miles, a wildlife blind that is not noted on the park's paper map branches off to the left. Soon after, a small foot bridge is crossed over a stream. The trail then continues until it intersects with Deer Run to the left. Continue straight here. Eventually, you'll be presented with a gradual ascent as the trail is overtaken by a rock face.
At approximately 1.9 miles, a brief ascent is followed by a descent and then an intersection with Oak Ridge Trail on the left. At 2.1 miles, a gradual descent puts the trail onto a paved path. From here, the trail exits straight to the main park, but you'll want to continue right to the dirt trail. The trail then soon intersects with Moose Pond Trail, where you'll want to continue right. The trail then passes over a rope-railing bridge at 2.3 miles and concludes with a gradual descent through a double-gated fence at 2.6 miles.
