great hike close to home. We started out from parking lot and took creek trail. Then tied into Monocacy Hill trail and followed white blazes up the mountain. It was cloudy but the views were nice. Definitely got the heart rate up.

Not too difficult and great view!

very well maintained, take the creek trail (lots of wood features)

Used this trail for a run while travelling. Routes are well marked and traffic was light. Side trails can easily add a couple miles to your route as well. Worth the trip!

Great hike down Creek Trail with my son. If you have kids make sure you get the Scavenger Hunt sheet at the head of the trail...kept him interested and reduced whining.

This is my favorite place to hike. There's a beautiful view on the Monocacy Trail

This was my first real trail after recovering from a severe ankle sprain a month prior, I only did the hill hike but there are a number of other low level trails to check out. This was a 2 mile hike and about 50 min of moving time, there is only one real lookout on top but it's a good one and it was only 15 minutes to the top from parking. I would imagine you could pull off looking at the sunset here and make it back if you double back before it gets too dark. This is a fairly easy trail but it is more moderate at the top with rocks. Very well maintained and marked.

I really like this trail! It's easy and has a great view! Can do the whole thing in one visit.

Easiest trail I've ever done did all the trails in two hours

loved this area. you could probably hike all the trails here in one day. they are very short and not too hard. monocacy hill trail is the one with the awesome view. cool old remains there where you get a little lesson in history.

Ran the trail last Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was very quiet as it was wet and drizzling. Was able to find my way around with no problems at all as the trails are well marked and easy to see. Between both runs did all of the trails other than the rail trail. Lots of rocks and some roots make it slightly challenging, especially going up the main monocacy hill trail and near the top it is almost impossible to run at all as you are going from rock to rock. Lots of leaves down right now doesn't help either. Sunday was much nicer and was a lot more crowded but still had almost the entire creek trail to myself. Monocacy trail was quite crowded with a ton of people on the top so had to wait in line a little bit. Very challenging run going up the hill, harder than Misery in my opinion with the steepness and the amount of rocks. Overall, really happy and this is now one of my go to places for trail running. View up top was awesome!

Nice trails. Good for novice to intermediate riders. All trails good to bike except the top portion of the White trail. Worth the hike up though to see the view.

I was pleasantly surprised at how great this place was for family mountain biking. I have two daughters, ages 10 and 12. All of the low trails were perfect for us. There were plenty of challenging down hills, climbs, and rock gardens. We did not get to explore all of the trails, but we hope to in the near future. The Monocacy Hill trail to the top is a good climbing challenge. Once you get to the very top, it was unrideable for us. We hiked about 50 yards to the overlook, then we came back down the same way we went up. Note that mountain biking is not allowed during the months of April and May.

My first time here I chose the Hill Trail. I wore my two year old on my back. It was a lot of fun. Very difficult for me, especially while babywearing. The lookout was beautiful. The way down was steep but manageable. For my first time doing something this skill level it went better than expected.

Great hike! Took us about an hour to go over the top and back! Look forward to coming back once the leaves on the trees.
