trail running

South Mountain State Park is a 40-mile long multi-use state park weaving along the South Mountain ridge from the Pennsylvania line to the Potomac River. It has no distinguishable boundary or entrance facility. South Mountain State Park can be accessed at a number of locations. Most of the park is only accessible by foot.

More challenging than I expected. An amazing work out though..still feeling it hours later.

Nice mild workout!!! I've been trying to get my other half to join the dog and I so this went over well. Got a nice sweat going and cooled off on the way back since it was pretty much all downhill. It's still very wet, muddy, and snowy in some parts of the trail but it's not unbearable. Would like to do this trail again on a sunny warm day!!!

Fun little hike. Did it as part of the longer Appalachian trail from I70 to pogo campsite.

Wonderful well marked trail. Some parts are even smooth enough to run. Beautiful views from the rocks. Perfect day trip and a great way to get some exercise!

We hiked to a scenic overlook via one of the side trails. We were a little off trail, but it was still a nice view when we got to the top of the mountain.

This was the first time, in many years that i went for a stoll on a trail. It was fabulous. good work out. will do another trail soon. Had a great time

Loved it! I'm a beginner so this trail really pushed me. The end view was definitely worth it!
