Description

Acorn Trail is a beautifully charismatic trail compared to its neighbors. It has several ascents and descents, providing strong character and making it one of the most diverse trails in Benson Park. However, the scenery is limited with few scenic points.

The trail begins at Swan Lake and follows a gradual ascent. Bear right to avoid confusion with the paved roadway to the left that connects to Haselton Farm Trail. The ascent continues and is soon followed by a subsequent series of ups and downs. The final ascent intersects the Oak Ridge Trail.
