Benton: Sunset Lake Park Walking Path (1 mi)

Sunset Lake Park Walking Path

The walking path at Benton’s Sunset Lake Park is an easy one-mile loop that circles the triangular-shaped lake. Despite the noise from Interstate-30 next door, this is a pleasant walk and something that definitely enhances the city’s quality of life.

The park is not hard to find (only a few blocks from the fairgrounds) and seems pretty popular with anglers.

As usual, I have posted some of my photos and a gpx map made from my gps data.
