Description

Otter Way is an absolute must while visiting Benson Park.

The trail begins at the intersection with Oak Ridge Trail and is shortly followed by a small detour to the wildlife blind with an overview of Beaver Pond. Returning back to the trail, runners are met with a gorgeous stroll through an open meadow. Depending on the time of year, flowers may be in bloom providing a gorgeous addition to the scenery.

The trail continues and is soon met with an intersection with Beaver Path on the left. Continue right on Otter Way and a glimpse of Bass Pond can be seen through the vegetation on the right. The trail ends at a connection to Haselton Farm Trail.
