Kendall Trail ist ein 10.2 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Friendsville, Maryland. Er führt entlang eines Flusses, durch schönen Wald und es gibt oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als moderat einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und spaziert werden. Die Route ist am besten von März bis November zugänglich. Hunde sind auf diesem Weg erlaubt.

The first two miles of this trail follows the former Oakland-Confluence narrow gauge railroad bed and so is only a modest but even climb. Frequent puddles and occasional streams trickling across. After the ghost town of Kendall (which is little more than a few foundations and a pile of coal spillage) the trail becomes more difficult, becoming clear why the railroad never made it upriver to Oakland. Near the end of the trail (5 miles from Friendsville), it narrows and almost disappears. Press on just a little farther and you'll find a place that kayakers call National Falls.

Nice trail. Little elevation but so pretty. Plenty of water nearby and beautiful mountain laurel. No blazes but not needed. Follows the river. Only ran into a couple of other people

Second time on Kendall travel. It’s much more enjoyable in the Fall after an extended dry season. We hiked it beginning to end earlier in the year and it was extremely muddy and wet. Beautiful views of the river and little side trails to sit on the rocks near the river. It’s well maintained, especially the first half.

As written in previous reviews, a nice shady morning walk along a beautiful river. Some parts were muddy and swampy because it had rained recently. But we took our two-year-old and found a couple of places that would even be good for overnight camping, if it is allowed. We only did a 7 mile out and back but had a great time. Definitely nice to walk in the shade.

Great trail slightly muddy in spots but nothing to write home about. Very secluded on a Thursday mid morning. We had our dog with us, easy walking went about 3 miles out. The trail follows the river very peaceful can’t wait to come back!

Lovely trail! And not very strenuous at all. GPS said 11.2 miles. Went a couple of days after a good rain, so was definitely pretty muddy in parts. Also a couple of small stream crossings. If you have hiking boots though, your feet shouldn't get wet at all. Several nice spots where you can climb out onto larger rocks and have a snack along the river if you'd like!

Really muddy. Still worth it. Be prepared to end the trail with wet feet.

This trail had awesome scenery and even though very muddy at times an over all great trip. I wouldn’t suggest hiking this trail after a very heavy rain bc you are hiking though old creek beds at times and here are certain areas where the runoff from the hills/mountain above run right across the trail. We would most certainly recommend it!

my wife and I decided hike this to help her prepare for a longer 26.6 mile trek in September. This trail offers good views of the river and is pretty easy going. The trail was extremely muddy in areas and was a little frustrating trying to negotiate 5 inch deep mud pits. Lots of deer and sign ...but we were disappointed that we didn't see any bear.

Since the weather and fall foliage was close to peak conditions I decided to attemp the Kendall Trail. It's a very easy grade... a rails to trails project. I was surprised about mile 2 how much rock was on the trail. Can't imagine a train ever navigated that. Overall a lovely easy paced

Easy trail on old narrow gauge train bed. Nice views of the river. Hiked in mid June. Some very large mud sections and lots of bugs.

Echoing the earlier sentiment, the area is not well marked regarding the start of the trail. Once on it, the trail was decent for novice hikers like myself. The turning of the fall foliage was a nice part of the hike. We saw no other hikers on our travels that day. The weather was off and on sprinkles, which didn't seem too bad until around mile four, where the dirt path turned into a swamp. We moved off the path to eat at that point, and enjoyed the bird sounds we could hear. We chose to turn around, in part because of the weather, but mostly because there wasn't an easy way around the mud holes we ran into on the trail. There was a stretch at least 40 yards of nothing but mud. I would like to do this again to finish it out, but I think I will wait until is it dry. Lots of nice terrain features to observe.

What the AllTrails directions don't say is where to park, the nearest public place to park is in front of the town's library about a block away. The trail begins just off of Morris Ave just behind a small apt building. the trail is gated, but other than the sign at the trail head, there are no markings. From there it's pretty straightforward. The sounds of I 68 and Rt 42 fade by mile 2. The trail is initially gravel, but that changes to dirt also by mile 2. The first 4 miles are pretty suitable for mountain biking as well, but it gets pretty rocky around mile 4. There are numerous small footpaths leading to the river. The whole trail is scenic, but after around mile 4, the scenery is best. The Alltrails site also lists this trail as 5 miles, but my gps clocked at 6 miles and the trail was still going (to be continued later) Foot traffic was minimal at best- I saw only 6 people the whole day. And 3 dogs. All on the return trip Wildlife includes deer, turkey, pheasent, insects by the metric ton, and though not seen (this time), Garrett County,MD is prime black bear country. This is more a Nature Trail than hike and I can see where it could possibly make a good beginner cross country ski trail as well.
