Photos of Gambrill State Park Birding Trails

I love hiking at Gambrill and the Yellow trail is especially beautiful in the spring when the mountain laurel is blooming and the ferns blanket each side of the trail in places. I deducted a star from my rating because I am a hiker and have had mountain bikers not notice I was on the trail. Last fall three bikers approached from behind pretty fast startling me, my dog, and the bikers! This was on the far north extension of the trail, so perhaps the bikers just weren't expecting a hiker! In addition to being biker aware, be bear aware! I was leading a hike there last Spring and came up behind a bear...heard him scamper away leaving only his fresh footprints in the mud! First time I had ever had a bear "almost" sighting in Maryland! Very exciting!
