Steep path down and a bit challenging on the way back up! Moderately trafficked on a Sunday afternoon in October.

Muddy but not bad.

Excellent. Lots of variety. However not doable without mapping program in my opinion. Most trails unmarked. Follow map and u should be ok for most part. The bridges were neat. The river nice. Lots of changing scenery. Unfortunately I gassed because I parked too far to begin with, added additional 4 miles. I cut out Charcoal loop, saved 0.6 then I cheated at end and walked on Landing Road literally to save a little. Very satisfying hike. I’m pooped.

While I admire the effort that went into recording this trail, it's a snoozer if you want payoff views. That said, this hike will give you a solid workout with lots of varied terrain. The falls and the river offered a few pleasant views. Notes for other hikers... 1) The parking area does not offer legal parking. We parked in nearby Hilton area and trekked to the nearest trail intersection. 2) Unless my GPS was off, the actual distance is between 9.5 and 10 miles. 3) When hiking on the south side of the river, take the path along the ridge and avoid the riverbed - unless you love rock scrambling. 4) Unless you use your GPS, you'll never stay on this recorded trail. Too many turns to keep track of.

HikingGreat!

Our RECORDING was only 2 Miles today. - We were first going to hike the the outer section of the Ole Ranger trail but the entire Hollofield section ( Rt. 40 ) of the Patapsco State Park was over crowded and all the gates were closed. - This was at 3 PM. but it was a Sunday. - We drove to the Avalon area off Washington Blvd. and there was no problem getting in. - The temps are prefect for hiking. - Nice breeze and no bugs. - The Park now closes at 7:10 PM. so 4:30 PM. may be a better time for evening hiking or biking now.

Steep path down to the water. Swinging bridge was cool. Walk back up was rocky and interesting.

HikingGreat!Over grownRocky

Nice trail. I t has a bit of everything- rocky, muddy, uphill, downhill, shaded, open spaces, over grown meadows, river, streams and railways. The only down side is that you can get easily lost without navigation. Couldn't have made it without the all trails app.

Really nice trail but got quite busy near the falls. Also very rocky in places but it was a lot of fun.

HikingPrivate propertyRocky

The section that's about a half mile through the field and road on the convent property seems to be private property, I think? I saw some no trespassing type signs once I was about at the end of that section. Otherwise the trails are decent, rocky in places.

Fun to trails to run on the declines, but definitely watch out for the folks on bikes! Definitely some muddy areas, but otherwise very nice paths.
