I've been taking my puppy here for awhile- nice walk and hike. Easy to get down to the patuxent river for him to cool down. A lot of runners and dogs - overall very peaceful.

This trail is ideal for mountain biking. There are alot of abrupt stops and inclines and the trail towards Lake Elkhorn is mostly gravel and mud. I had to stop and turn around because it was too muddy for my bike.

With my son, we traveled down one of the four split trails. We had such a great time! I don't know if the trail colors mean anything about their level of difficulty, but some trails run right by the water and others don't. Anyway you walk, it's a nice scenic view, and you will meet fellow hikers along the way.

Really pretty woods, fairly dense, and nice trails that are well-marked. Easy to get in 2-3 miles, and up to 5-6 if you don’t mind running the same path twice. In suburban area so kids, dogs aplenty when I was there early Saturday morning. I did these woods as a “long run” in the very beginning of trail half-marathon training after a slight ankle roll earlier in the week because its a trail but was not super technical. A safe option and A great day overall.

Nice trail, unfortunately the red trail part was closed.

Nice after work walk, the Temperature was in the mid 70’s. Nice view of the river below. So some people fishing in the river. On both sides of the river, there are several historical structures. Check out Savage Mill Mall.

very muddy today , otherwise it was a wonderful hike !

Red, Yellow and green trails is almost 4 miles. Ice on the rivers was amazing.

we expected more things to do on the trail. just good for walk.

Hiked the Green Trail. It was scenic and quiet. Trail markers were well placed besides a visible trail. There is a steep path on the right side of a loop that may prove to be challenging going up or down but is generally manageable.

Not bad, but nothing special. You do get to spend some time by the water here, and it's easy without being too boring. Nice short little loop.

nice peaceful hiking and jogging area

Good Hike. Remember the bug spray in the summer when you are near the river!

Nice trail, they could've done a better job marking where the trail continues in some areas (e.g. by Patuxent Branch Middle(or was it High?) School).

nice hike, multiple trails that go along the water, decent parking. very peaceful

Moderate? It was flat and paved and posed no difficulty. I wouldn't call this a trail. More like a paved suburban path.

We really enjoyed hiking the Green and a little of the Blue trails this time.

nice park. can put trails together how ever you like and only 200 yards from little patuxent trail. played in River and not nearly as crowded as patapsco

We really enjoyed walking on the Red Trail this time. It was very scenic. next time we will explorer other trail options.

Took our boys hiking, a little difficult with a stroller but thankfully we had a great off road stroller! Was a great little hike. Water was nice to walk along beside.

We wanted to go for a hike nearby for Mother's Day. It was a perfect day for it. Due to the recent rain, we also wanted a location that wasn't too muddy. The trail was not that crowded, surprisingly and it was beautiful. There are two reasons that I didn't give it 5 stars. First, there were several forks in the trail that were not clearly marked. This is where the All Trails app came in REALLY handy! Second, because it is so close to major roads and highways, it took away from the peaceful nature of the beautiful scenery. So when you look at all the beautiful pictures, keep that in mind. Other than that, it was a perfect day!

Nothing wrong with the trails themselves, they are marked well. It's just really really boring and it's not far away enough from roads to still hear noise pollution from cars. If you like an easy clear cut walk with not much going on, then this is for you. It was definitely more of a walk than a hike. The only interesting part about the trails was the river, and that was just ok too.
