Trail is remnants of old Alberton Road which led to the former mill town of Daniels, MD. The Textile Mill was established in the 1800s and survived until destroyed by flooding in 1972. There are still traces of the former Mill and foundations of Mill worker houses. A little past the trail end, there is a train bridge over the Patapsco and Daniel's Dam.

Great trail, I advise anyone riding to be mindful of the newly fallen trees across the trail.

Beautiful and quiet trail with peaceful river. A little bit muddy, but nothing too significant.

Fairly easy trail, not many views along the way fairly dense woods. When you arrive the house you pass has a sign that says keep left and it got me a tad lost. It is not a hard left just don't walk directly through their driveway. Go slightly left as to walk through the dirt directly next to their driveway then make a right back onto what looks like their property you will see a metal fence.go around that post and you've found the trail! Will do again and will take pictures of how to actually find the trail

Perfect hike for a hot day since the trail is shaded and runs next to the Patapsco river. We saw three deer, two red foxes, a bunch of ducks and squirrels and some type of crane (a great blue heron maybe?). Anyhow, way more wildlife than we thought we'd see for this one hour hike. Highly recommended it if you are in the area
