Beautiful nature but poorly marked blazes on parts of the blue trail. At one point we may not have been on the trail at all as the path was very overgrown and narrow on the east side of the mountain.

Enjoyed very much: especially view at top!

Beautiful!! Probably should’ve paid more attention to the “moderate” part for my first hike in many many years. BUT, I made it and I didn’t quit.

Got lost, and didn’t make it to the rock. Very rocky with tough stepping.

Wonderful trail. We’re traveling to Baltimore and were looking for a trail to hike that would not take all day. We loved the stream. The outcropping of rocks at the top was worth w hike. We heard rumblings of thunder and got soaked in a thunderstorm! Thanks to trail locator for the hiking information.

Great hike. If you take the left trailhead it’s about a mile uphill. Good workout. Great bouldering at wolf rock and beautiful view at chimney rock. Lots of rock jutting out on trail. We took time outs at both wolf and chimney and did the loop in 2 hr 30 min. Will be back!

Beautiful hike. I got lost but managed to find myself back on a trail! Found a rattle snake so be aware of your surroundings. Happy hiking :)

Good level of challenging, some steep parts but such a well made path it was no problem. Ample parking (with video security), free (with donations recommended), great views and different path options. Overall great hike!

Great...I'd definitely do it again.

Great hike. Fairly easy, but White Rocks( north and south) has scenic views. I will agree some of the markings(blazes) were difficult to see. My wife and I did lose the trail at one point. However, given this property is part of a foundation, I am very thankful we have access to it. Worth the hike.

My husband and I are beginner hikers, we hiked up to Wolf Rock, and really enjoyed it a lot. Chimney Rock is the next destination on this hike!

The blue trail is beautiful and rugged. It is poorly marked in one spot. We took the wrong path and had to back track. We came across a Timber Rattlesnake on the trail.

Nice scenic hike. Fairly easy even for someone like me with arthritis and bad knees. Beautiful view at Hog Rock vista.

The hike was a real workout! the accents on either side were faily steep and very rocky. After so much rain it was fairly dry except for a few areas. the High Rock lookout was great!

Lots of rocky outcroppings. Not for the beginner hiker.

Super easy trail. Great for kids.

Beautiful water element with great forest canopy on almost the entire run.
Very nice!

We visited the falls after a few good days of rain and the flow was amazing. The signage at the trailhead shows it as a 1/2 mile out and back. To make it a loop you must take the cliff trail for a bit.

The Blue Trail was an enjoyable but challenging walk in the woods. I found myself going up and down a lot. The trail markings were a bit confusing at first and it can be pretty easy to go off the trail if you're not careful. It wasn't too hot considering it was mid July when I did this. I had fun spotting all the different granite intrusions in the rocks. The summit at White Rocks was breathtaking.

Well marked trail with rewarding rock outcrops . Great 1/2 day hike. We like to do this in early spring and late fall.

Park is beautiful but the lack of adequate blazes and trail markers sadly makes me rate this loop 2 stars.

AMAZING HIKE!! Absolute smoker if you love hiking for time!!

Some nice views and challenging terrain at times. Walking through the woods was beautiful!

the trails get poorly marked as you go further in. we completely missed a turn off for the blue trail and wasted a lot of time. it was disappointing not being able to do the full loop as originally planned. we might try another day

A great way to escape Maryland's liberal bullshit.

Cute place to swim in waterfalls!

There are two trails here at two different farms. One Farm is Worthington Farm and has a nice trail of about 3-4 miles depending on where you park. If you park right off the road and walk down the gravely path you add about 1.4 miles to a less than three mile hike in the woods.

The second trail is the Thomas Farm trail. It has a separate parking area/entrance from Worthington Farm; just a little down the road and it’s a much shorter and easier trail of a little less than 3 miles.

These two trails are part of the Monocacy National Battlefield.

Beautiful views. Serene trails. Historic farms.

We decided to kick of the 4th of July with a booty burner hike! It was already 85 degrees when we woke up. We sweated our ass off and got a good hike in. It was around 100 degrees by 11 am. We took the dog and ended up only doing 2.3 miles because he was struggling in the heat and we didn’t want to push him. We passed a dog that was extremely stressed and over heated on the way up. Park service came to assist the owner in getting the dog down the trail to get help. It was hard to see the dog in that condition. I’ve thought about the dog all day and pray he made it. Bring PLENTY of water to hydrate for everyone!!! Great hike. Looking forward to finishing the entire loop another time.

Easy access and well marked. Great views with a rocky wet start.

Rocky, wet, and beautiful scenery-moss covered rocks, a stream and little waterfalls along the way. Perfect way to start a Saturday!
