Nice trail. Lots of noise from inner tubers on the river.

Very nice trail. It is easy as it's all level and gravel. Kids and the puppy enjoyed it.

Loved this trail. Beautiful, tranquil walk that follows the river. The falls area is gorgeous with some great spots for catching a dip. So many trails will definitely go back.

Nice, quiet trail. Beautiful area! For the most part it's shaded. The occasional sun spots end up feeling great. This stop has a bathroom too!

This is one of my favorite trails. You can hike the trail in sections of about an hour each. Or you can thru hike it in a day. There's lots of wildlife, wild edibles and just great single track hiking without a lot of people on the trail. The trail parallels the river the whole way and begins at the bottom of Prettyboy dam.

We actually could not find this trail. We were able to access the NCR trail from this location and it's a grey location for water tubing. LOTS of people tubing here. But no visible trail to hike to any waterfalls or anything

Great Thanksgiving morning hike. We hiked right after some heavy rainfall so some of the trail was in rough shape but we enjoyed it a lot. It was a good work out. One spot had several trees downed by beavers. Absolutely a must for anyone in the Harford/Baltimore County area.
