Nice moderate trail with a number of hills and valleys


I love this series of trails. There are a bunch of branch points and it is very close to Baltimore where I live so I can easily be out in nature in no time at all. I trail run here. The main (red trail) is pretty wide and flat. The blue trail is flat, but narrow and goes along the river. It is my favorite as I see a lot of birds, deer, foxes along this trail. The yellow, green, and orange trails are rockier with more tree roots and have a bit of elevation change. All of the trails go through mature forest so they are shady in the summer. Almost all of the trails get muddy so be prepared if has rained recently. I don’t mind it personally, but some may.

I’m local and have visited the King and Queen seat many times, but just recently took the time to discover the white trail itself. Money saving tip that’ll add some fun rocky terrain, cool rock formations and steep grade: park along MD Rt 24/Rocks Rd for FREE and take the purple trail straight up to where it connects with the white trail. If you want the big views at the King and Queen seat at the end, hang a right. Taking a left will get you there almost immediately. Diverse terrain with opportunities for some trail running along this loop.

Love this trail. I don't have to get in my car to drive to a trail. And this place is beautiful

Very wet trail today - like a creek bed in many spots. Beautiful; rare savanna in Maryland

Beautiful hike. Steep at the beginning and end, but not hard. Good portion of the hike is along the river/stream, a few stream crossings, and a nice view!

Beautiful woods/rock hike! A fair amount of terrain change/hills. A great workout!

I’m a big fan of grasslands and bird watching, and there was plenty of both. I have a good time whenever I hike the trail. Probably not the best hike if you don’t tolerate muggy weather. It’s especially gorgeous when there’s fog.

Cool hike! King and Queen was great view but busy

Nice hike. Well maintained and labeled. The trail was muddy in some areas as expected after all of the rain the area has been getting. We took the Logger’s Trail (red) to Ivy and S. James (yellow) to Overlook Trail (red/black) to Logger’s Trail (red) to Virginia Pine (green). There were quite a few people on the trails. Our dogs enjoyed playing in the water. Lots of benches to sit and relax.

Fun hike, really enjoyed it. The King and Queen seat was very busy.

Great terrain! A little muddy this time out, but great experience over all.

The wife and I HIKED 4 miles with our Beagles today. - Because one of them is 12 years old my plan was to only hike a little over 2 miles. - After trekking half way down the marsh trail we came to a section in the middle that was completely flooded. - We turn around and ended up trekking all the way down to the waterfront. - We hiked the Hiker Biker Trails. - They only had a few muddy sections. - Not that bad. - With the cool weather it was a beautiful morning. - The fishing pier was crowded and we only saw one crazy person in the water swimming.

Very pretty and quiet. Good for taking an easy walk, or maybe bird-watching. Saw people walking their dogs. There was a pretty cool nature center, well maintained trails, and very interesting, historic lime kilns to observe.

The Food System Lab @ Cylburn ran by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future is a nice bonus on Sunday. Baltimore is a great city!

while a good hike.... very Hot ... not much shade for most of it... BRING PLENTY OF WATER

Got lost on some of the new trails that are here. Well not really lost, but turned around. It was our first time here mind. We did find the Native American huts, and saw the birds of prey in the Avery being fed breakfast.

lots of wildlife!

Good trail. I took the yellow trail (the 4 mile one) and it was peaceful, only saw a couple of other people towards the beginning and end of the trail. There is a nice little bench and pond area about halfway where you can sit and relax. Definitely will do it again

An urban park trail as linear city trails should be: beautiful as well as usable. It combines access to nature with access to schools, libraries, shops, etc. The trail is used heavily by school kids & parents, dog walkers, runners, a few cross-country cyclists, people going to work. It makes my visits to the Johns Hopkins Library and Baltimore's Museum of Art greener and contemplative.

park at the rock ridge pavilion to get the fastest route to views off the king & queen

3900 st clair bridge rd

After passing by this park for years to go hiking in parks further away, this is becoming my favorite hiking destination. It’s beautiful and there are so many trail options and possible loops to choose from! Maybe a few too many trails though. I have gotten turned around a couple times out in the woods and had to rely on the app to get back!
