Little Bennett


Little Bennett Regional Park is the largest natural gem of Montgomery County. Throughout its 3,700 acres, you will find over 20 miles of trails leading you to and through quality forests, meadows, and streams. This vast park is home to many historic sites, as well as an abundance of native plants and animals. Additionally, you will find Montgomery County’s only campground, and the Little Bennett Golf Course. While virtually undeveloped, there are plans to enhance the park. Approved in March 2007, the Little Bennett Master Plan will provide a well planned day use area to enrich your future visits to the park. Until then, we look forward to seeing you here in the northern part of the county on our trails or camping in the campground to explore our many natural wonders.

Hours: Sunrise to sunset, year round. Operational hours of other facilities within the park will vary; please check listings for each facility.

Trails
