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!

I enjoyed the hike and there was a lot of beautiful sections. The train tunnels added a sense of adventure. the water falls and pools of water made it even better. I was glad I brought my hiking poles it was slippery along most of the trails. Great Sunday hike.

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

First time here and loved it! Enjoyed 70 degree weather in January. Will definitely be back!!!

Great hike with my 6 year old! About 5 small stream crossings and plenty of mud but worth it!

beautiful hike, but the trail merges were very confusing as all of them had the same blue blaze. definitely bring a map and a walking stick to assist crossing the stream. waterfall was beautiful!

Meh. Long enough, but not a lot to look at other than a small stream and suburbia.

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
