Fun little trail that is marked okay. We took the long loop that went along the Monocacy River counterclockwise. There is an industrial zone across the river. Half way through the hike we came across a farm with many cows. The trail then goes up a small hill with a switchback incline then comes down to the parking area where we started. There is a historical farm house, picnic tables, and a cannon next to the parking area with a nice view of the farm. I docked the trail two stars because of the industrial zone and the proximity to the highway that offers unwanted noise. The trail is moderately travelled on the weekend. Cheers.
