Description: Park map. Fare: $20/$25. Departs from 17th & K Sts. and the Grosvenor Metro. Little Bennett Regional Park contains a trail network that spreads over 3700 acres and includes several sites of historical interest. Our route begins at the Hyattstown parking area and takes the Western Piedmont, Bennett Ridge, and Beaver Valley trails. Returning to the Western Piedmont trail and turning right, hikers go on to the Hard Cider, Pudrum, and Browning Run trails. Returning again to the Western Piedmont trail, hikers take the Wims Meadow loop (where a local African-American baseball team was formed). Moderate hikers will then turn right and go via the Western Piedmont Trail to the Kingsley parking area. Long hikers will turn left on the Western Piedmont and take an additional loop consisting of the Pine Grove, Dark Branch, Timber Ridge, and Tobacco Barn trails. Returning to the Western Piedmont Trail, long hikers will turn left to go to the Kingsley parking area. Est. miles: 11 (intermediate) and 8 (intermediate). MD
