You should park in the state lot near the sign for the NP. The last house on Godfrey Rd. used to have a parking lot for hikers and a donation box, $1.00/day. There was a sign out in front of the house that said, "Benson Light & Power" as they had no outside source for electricity and used a generator. I'm told that this parking is no longer available, but you can check.

I hiked from the Benson Road trailhead last August. Yes, that house has prominently displayed signs saying "NO PARKING" and "KEEP OUT" so don't park there. I parked in the state's parking lot about 0.2 mile away.

Thanks, good to know. I know the house was for sale at one time, perhaps they did finally sell it.
