Ok trail - took us 90 minutes to finish a brisk walk with our dog. Very little foot traffic on a chilly day mid week. Parts of the trail are very wet and muddy (had rain earlier in the week) and poorly marked. Beautiful walk along the river with various vantage points. I would say the trail is moderate because of some steep stairs, but it’s listed as easy. I may try it again when it’s dry!

somewhat muddy. decent trail system

Was a well maintained trail with beautiful scenery but as others have said you could hear RT 70 noise for a portion of it.

Great hike very informative however if your following the book from the visitor center this map is not entirely correct.

Nice hike very dog friendly. Not marked well.

Lovely variety but note that the entrance is closed and you have to use a different one. Also, the recorded trail in AllTrails is inaccurate. There are big signs saying, “Not a Trail.”

Love this trail! Beautiful and fun!!!

Great Trail! Nice Views of the Bay!

Hike along water streams, nice view.

Trails not clearly marked, but plenty of them. A great hike finding them way.

This hike was more of a nature walk. My husband carried our son in his carrier and there were no issues at all. One stream crossing but crossed easily. Path is very wide, was slightly muddy but expected after a day of rain. Took about 1.5 hours to complete the loop. Lots of spurs off the main trail if you wanted to do more. Went on a Sunday and passed about 10 other groups.

Beautiful trail. Almost missed the waterfall after making the entire loop, but checked the map on this app and backtracked a bit to the falls. Glad we did! Definitely a moderate hike, not too much in the way of elevation, and all around enjoyable. We will be back!

Hiked the lighthouse trail(not to the actual lighthouse, that is at the end of the peninsula) which is roughly 2.5 miles. Easy hike, but nothing to write home about. Stay in trail, as hunters abound.

The trailhead is unmarked and the rock scrambling is tough, but the view of the stream makes it worth the trek.

The hike itself was beautiful, but I found the trail to be poorly marked and we missed the trail to do the full loop and had multiple other hikers ask us for directions back to their cars. I would definitely hike it again, but would use the map more instead of trusting the trail.

Beautiful trails with dog friendly people

Gravel road, quiet

Overcast-ed skies and the breeze make a hike in the meadows prefect. - Although I bike too, I am glad no bikes are allowed in this all natural area. - You have a mixed environment of Woods, Meadows and a Stream. - Do to a lack of shade in many sections, I never come here in the summer. I love all the different butterflies along the meadow trails of green grass. I always park on the lot at Trotter Rd. but space is limited.

This trail has the classic, pretty woodsy look throughout Patapsco park. The only reason I wouldn’t give it more stars is because we had to go off this map and follow a different trail back. The section on the map that says “overgrown” yeah... they mean that, it’s not just a trail name :p So unless you want a hair full of spiders or some ticks to hitch a ride on you, I’d avoid this trail or go but prepare to detour when you hit the stretch on the map that says “overgrown”

Loved the side trails. Beautiful! Went on a weekday and there were few people.

Started on AT where Means Hollow Rd intersects Ridge Rd. Hiked south 7 miles to Caledonia SP. This trail was widely varied along the ridge which made it quite pleasant, and south of Stillhouse Rd, in slightly lower areas, a wonderful 'tunnel' of overgrown Rhododendron impresses one along with abundant springs. Lower end of trail nearing Caledonia is very steep and difficult. I recommend a 2 car hike starting up north heading south due to that simple fact. Across the stream from the AT shelter in some ruins just above Caledonia, we saw a tree that had been abused by bear. It was scratched down through bark to the inner layer in a doormat sized display.

My family loves this trail for a quick workout and great scenery and views. The trial has a moderate climb in the beginning and flattens out near the top. Wonderful sights of water, and forests with a spectacular view of the valley and of the river of rocks below the outlook.

I run here all the time. Great trail that’s mostly flat and wide enough for multiple people. Perfect family trail and the marina has a carousel and mini golf in the summer.

This trail has a little bit of everything. From wide to narrow path, climbing over rocks and crossing a stream. The stream was fantastic from all the rain that has fallen this past summer and fall. Will go back and hike again this winter.

A nice and easy walk to the lighthouse- our dog loved running through the tall grass!

not spectacular but pleasant and easy

This was a very nice hike, walked along the river for a majority of the trail. Some spots that get rocky and some spots that are pretty muddy (due to the excessive amounts of rain this year).There is incline at the beginning and end of the trail and mainly flat in between. This would be a very nice ride on horseback as well. I can imagine it gets pretty crowded in the summer time. We passed lots of dogs along the way as well.

Absolutely gorgeous! Landscape changes abound. A great hike when you’ve been stuck inside for way too long.

Very easy, all stone road trail. Plenty of deer when I went. Nice views from the lighthouse cliff. Head left when you leave (if you are facing the treeline) through the mowed grass path to a trail leading to a nice, lower view of the water. This trail leads back to the main rocky trail that you come in on. Parking may be scarce depending on when you go (not bad mid September). Nice easy trail that almost anybody could do

We have been horseback riding here many times and it has always been enjoyable. Majority of trails are wooded and some of the trails can be a little overgrown during the summer. If there has been a lot of rain it can get pretty mucky as well. Various trail types as well. Some are narrow and wind around and others are wide and pretty straight. Sometimes have to make your own trail if a tree has come down. Bicyclists are usually pretty considerate about moving to the side as well.
