Trip Report: Benton Falls Trail is an easy 3mi out and back hike to a beautiful 60’ water fall. One can access both the top and bottom of the falls from the trail. Our hike started from the McKamy Lake parking lot. Once across the lake dam the trail bears off to the left. The trail is wide and well marked with Blue Blazes. In addition to other hikers (with and without dogs) there were several bicycle riders though the final descent to the falls is foot traffic only. By the time we returned to our vehicle, the Memorial Day traffic had overloaded the available parking. The only disappointment on the hike was that one owner failed to clean up after their dog.
