Devil’s Run Road


Devil’s Run Road: Early to mid 20th Century informal name for the dirt road that runs from Bennett’s Farm Road at Fox Hill north to the Bennett’s Ponds, today the main roadway into the Bennett’s Pond State Park; the road was part of Col. Louis D. Conley’s massive estate, Outpost Farm, begun around 1914, and served as the main route to the pond or ponds; name reflects the roughness of the road, which even today tends to suffer washouts in heavy rains.
