NOTICES
  • The Prescott Road Horse Trailer Parking Area near the Little Bennett golf course is temporarily closed due to wet and soggy ground conditions. Vehicular traffic in that area has resulted in extensive turf damage. It will re-open once repairs are completed. - posted 3-11-14
  • Proposed Little Bennett Trail Connector
    M-NCPPC Montgomery Parks invites you to review and provide input on the design of a new trail connector in Clarksburg, Maryland from the Little Bennett Regional Park Maintenance Yard to the south entry of the future Little Bennett Park Day Use Area.
  • There have been some significant new trail alignments in the eastern side of the park. You will want to bring a new map with you. - posted winter 2013

Description

This 3,700-acre park offers over 21 miles of natural surface trails in one of our Best Natural Areas. The park is mostly forested and lies among the tributaries of Little Bennett Creek. Hawk's Reach Activity Center offers activities, nature films and other routinely scheduled events. Little Bennett Regional Park includes 91 campsites that are handicapped accessible and an 18-hole golf course. Little Bennett Regional Park is also very fortunate to have an active volunteer force in the "Friends of Little Bennett".

Unless noted otherwise on the map, trails marked “Natural Surface” and “Hard Surface” are "Shared by All" trails which includes hikers, bikers and equestrians. Additional information about permitted uses of Park trails is available on our Trail User Information page.
