Great hiking area. Saw some beautiful scenery and wildlife. Was surprised at the height of some of the trails overlooking the Big Elk Creek.

It was such a nice walk! Got to see a fox hunting group through the day and some beautiful country side! Plan on taking my horse in the future.

Recently visited Fair Hill for the first time after a big snow storm and it was a last minute decision so we were ill prepared for sloshing around in the melting snow. There are trail markers throughout for horseback riding, ATV, hiking, etc. which was a nice surprise. There are also trail markers on the trees directing you on paths. There is a $3 parking/park fee for out of state visitors that you drop in the box and place the date and matching envelope number in your dashboard, not a bank breaker. There are great little surprises along the trails like someone made chairs and benches out of tree stumps. I'll update my review when we go back again with more time and preparedness.

Excellent set of miles and miles of trails with a beautiful creek running down the middle. Most of the creek is about knee deep except after rain. My dog and I love the trails and he loves the creek!

Excellent trail system for biking. Trail Spinners and park staff do a great job keeping the trails clear and usable. I ride here often and the terrain is quite varied from absolute beginner to expert. Not huge elevation changes but some nice single track and you can get as tough or long of a ride as you desire. Definitely worth it to pick up a park map from the office or online as it is not difficult to take a wrong turn due to the sheer size of the park and number of trails. There are some challenging trails with water crossings, rocky sections, and a fair amount of tree roots. Great scenery and place to ride.
