I believe some people are confused. The (Hilltop) Area is not the same as the (Hilton) Area. The best access point for the Hilton Area is 1101 Hilton Ave, Catonsville, Md. Now, if you plan to hike the Hilltop Loop then park at S. Hilltop Rd. location or at the Ilchester Rd. lot by the foot bridge. You can even park at the Swinging Bridge in the Orange Grove area but you will have to paid to enter the park. To keep the trails maintained, Your SUPPORT is needed.
wife and I did this trail on a warmer fall day. there was one somewhat tricky spot due to the incline but overall we really enjoyed the trail.
