(0.3 MILES)

King Benson Trail is named for a former naturalist that worked at Audubon State Park. This relatively easy 0.3-mile trail has illustrated interpretive signs that refer to the natural history of the Park, as well as the artwork of John James Audubon. From the trail map kiosk at the end of the Main Office/Welcome Center parking lot, follow the series of steps to the right and climb to the top of a grassy knoll. King Benson Trail then descends into a peaceful, forested valley filled with tall Tulip Trees, young Pawpaw Trees, and plenty of Spicebush. Once the trail emerges from the valley and joins Warbler Road, hikers will take a left and follow the road back to the parking area, or will choose to embark upon other trails.
