Description

You can start this trail either from the Burnt Hill Parking Area or from the hill above the Kingsley Schoolhouse. There is a porta-potty at the Earl's Campsite just about halfway between the Loggers Trail and the Hard Cider Trail.

Logistics aside, this is a pleasant trail through dense forest on the hillside above Little Bennett Creek. If you'd like, you can extend your time in the area by heading down adjoining trails like the Loggers Trail or Browning Run Trail.
