This was a beautiful trail with rugged and diverse terrain. We started at the parking area off of Bunker Hill Rd. Then followed GP South to Highland. When Highland met back with South we continued on to Prettyboy Dam. We followed South all the way back, climbing rocks and fallen trees and navigating dense vegetation but still finding the blazes. We crossed over to GP North at Masemore Rd on our way back. North was pretty lackluster after the beauty and interest on the way out, though. The most exciting part was traversing the water, because we did not notice before setting out that the BRIDGE NO LONGER EXISTS to get from GP North back across to Bunker Hill.

Great hike.

This trail is beautiful, especially on the section just south of Walker Run. Be careful for slick, mossy rocks. I didn't have much trouble sticking to the trail because the river provides a good reference. Crossing the Gunpowder Falls before returning to Gunpowder Rd. is a little challenging if you're trying to stay dry. I needed to step on a few submerged rocks to make the crossing.

Hey All,

I live on one of those border properties people mention in their reviews. Thanks for keeping the area clean and pristine. If you ever see a German Shephard full of energy running around, she's nice as can be and wouldn't hurt a fly (just might play too hard) - sometimes she just roams a little too far! Her name is Stella and loves a good stick toss into the water. Feel free to play with her or tell her to go home.

Thanks again

Beautiful trail along the river but this isn't an easy stroll. Trail is unmarked.
