Huge park. Trails everywhere. Fun for the dogs.

Nice today. A little chilly but NBD. Muddy spots were unfreezing at about 12:15 PM.

First time on this trail, not bad. Water was too high on the most direct stream crossing in the beginning and was definitely not a good idea to go this way on the day I went. Signs direct you to go this way, so just make a good judgement call. I had to go a bit further to get a lower area and that took up some time. It also got a little confusing after the underpass, as there are many unmarked side trails and the trail merges to the white aren’t well marked. Made it to the second telephone line field before I had to turn back. Would like to go back and finish the rest!

This is a nice hike. It was a little muddy today but the trail runs through some beautiful hilly forests as well as along the Patapsco. Bring your camera!

a Little muddy ,also found deer hair on the trail and a deer carcass in the field. saw some horse tracts on the trail so be mindful that hunters are aloud to hunt here and horse back riding is a possibility

Fun hike but dont think patapsco maintains this as a whole trail - so, for a while it’s very hard to navigate and the tree markings just stop. My outcome was much more mileage than what is listed here on AllTrails

Well maintained, scenic trail. Bike, dog, and kid friendly. Would recommend for friends, family, or solo hikes. Plenty of space and trails for everyone.

I went with a friend and brought my dog along. although it is currently winter and the forest floor is covered in leaves. It was still a very enjoyable hike my dog had a grand old time admiring the many baby deer we came across. We only got through half the trail but we will definitely be back!

Great trail!

Great hiking trail. Some water falls, some elevation and walking along the river.

Great trail! Lots of mountain bikers, but not too heavily trafficked. Gorgeous woods and great views of the river. If you can park across the street from the Woodstock and then walk across the bridge to the trailhead from there.

beautiful along the river and good scenery overall. walked along in the fall and the further into the trail it becomes difficult to navigate, to be exact it's after the bridge. there's no markers so I relied on the map and directions without the premium subscription.

A walk Ben on a crisp fall day.

Today was gorgeous. Our first time here. Lots of wet, colorful leaves along the trail covered some loose and slippery rocks but not too bad. Although we did the loop, it was somewhat the same trail. Stayed on the north then south trail. Peaceful with just a few people spotted along the way. Was looking for birds and saw a nice handful. Saw squirrels but surprisingly no deer. Great place to spend an autumn afternoon!

Great afternoon walk. Sadly loads of invasive species everywhere. Good with dogs. Found a wild persimmon tree!
