Future Trails Map

If you go late summer, hot, but tons of berries to pick. Print out the info from MoCo, great talking points with kids down the trail. Done this twice with 4 kids.

After staying home for a few days because of the rain it was time to hit the trails. Temperatures today almost hit the 60 degree mark. I decided to hike the high trails today because they always dry out fast. Out of the 3.2 miles of this loop I completed today, only 5% of it had mud. This is by far my favorite loop in the Orange Grove and Hilton Area. Sawmill trail has water cascading on it and a cool rock hop boulder scramble. The Santee, Pig Run and Forest Glen are like hiking the AT with lots of rocks. If you like the best of the best then hike this loop. I created a map last year of this complete area of the park.

Always a great spot. Never a let down.

Geat trail, long enough to get the blood moving but easy enough to take you dogs as well

Nice trail and a good place for friendly dogs.

Great trail. Easy walk with a few rocks to navigate and a few creek crossings. Took the family and very much enjoyed it. Out and back took about 1hour, 45 minutes while taking our time for a few pictures.

Well maintained, and marked, for an easy escape from urban sprawl. Beautiful views and access to beach and water.

Well-maintained trail with lots of water views and historic points of interest. Beautiful and peaceful. Will definitely go again.

Excellent trail!! The footing was great, the trails were well maintained and it was beautiful. We will definitely be taking our horses back again.

Great views, I’ve been here dozens of times during all seasons of the year.

Muddy hike on a warm winter's day. Rewarded with a partially frozen Waterfall.

Great trail. Loved the half frozen Cascade Falls. Took lots of nice pictures along the way. Look forward to going again.

Closed Sundays :(

Went yesterday with my two kids. The frozen waterfall was a sight to see! Very muddy and Rocky as it was a 55 degree day after a month of very cold temps. Crossing some of the water was a little dicey. Bit it was beautiful and I look forward to taking them back in the spring!

Great hike in 18° weather this morning. I was unable to capture the trip using this app due to the low temperature. Very well-maintained path. Creek crossings were a bit tough with all the ice , But my six-year-old and I took on a nice little walk.

I loved this hike. It has enough level of challenge to give you a bit of a workout but not difficult at all views are beautiful and the little waterfalls are cute especially frozen or partially frozen as I saw them. Totally recommend it.

Great hike. Cool falls I never knew about.

Great views of Annapolis and the bay, but not a very picturesque walk.

Two words: It’s rocky. Well, about 35-45% of this trail offers a rocky challenge where some spots are enhanced by inclines and hills. This is a popular trail for families, one I’ve visited before without recording and reviewing. I found the experience different when I used someone else trek. I realized I needed to make waypoints along the way as I found myself going off course. I had to scramble a hillside a bit when I got to the waterfall due to all the frozen ice everywhere (this is where I stopped and re-started my recording). No probs, though. This is a fun trail all year around, but be careful of all the branching points on the trail.

Nice walk. Got easily turned around after the spring. Everything seemed well marked to me until that point. It was easy enough to get back on track with GPS.

A nice rocky hike tucked in the middle of suburbia. There are a few housing developments surrounding the park/trail, so you have to park on the side of the road and walk down to the trailhead.

Great place for family and friends get together and walk

Parked at broadcloth and red clavet Columbia MD. So for me 5 stars means I would bring a friend back...
I felt safe alone the entire time because houses and neighborhoods are close by. I was turned off at first because it’s pavement ... which doesn’t feel like hiking to me... plus at first it seemed like any bike path near my house but the plus was ... I could enjoy the scenery instead of looking down for obstacles. Lots of peaceful areas and water... and some cute wooden ‘bridges’ plus it had some hills instead of being all flat

Loved it. The perfect short hike.

Very well maintained trail, although it can get crowded on weekends. Great for trail running. Mainly like it because the trail is varied, not paved and away from the highway noise.

We liked this hike. A little bit of rock scrambling is fun for the wee ones. I went with a 5 year old and 11 year old. Hiking boots not necessary. Crocs worked just fine and let the kids get wet in the water.

Not recommended for seniors. The path soon narrows to a walk filled with sharp stones and large roots often too close to the a cliff above the river. This combined with a busy traffic and streams that must be waded makes the walk unpleasant and perhaps dangerous.

Nice trail. Quiet. Waterfall is pleasant to sit in front of for relaxation.

Beautiful trail, a little confusing as there are multiple ways to reach the trail but the falls are worth it
