Great walking through the creek

Was okay...but honestly it could be marked much more clearly. We were always a little confused about which trail led where!

Very pretty park in the middle of a residential area. Trails are marked but its easy to get on different trails throughout hike.

I love the blue trail. Its easy and super fun, with small rock scrambles and some little water falls. The only bummer is there is a TON of trash everywhere. Be careful of the broken glass all along the streams edge.

My kids loved this trail. There are actually two trails a yellow which travels around the park and a blue trail that follows the stream. The dogs we ran into were leashed which was really nice since so many places we go they aren't. We did lose the blue trail and ended up on the yellow which was fine. There are tons of rocks for the kids to jump on and a couple of crossing on the stream which weren't hard to cross, so no one's feet got wet. Overall a nice place in the middle of town which you forget about when you get on the trail.

Wooded trails, kinda marked, with a stream running through the middle.

very poorly marked at one point. Found ourselves on a red trail that was not mapped

The BEST trail we’ve found nearby with plenty of rock scrambling for the kids, which is the only thing they really like about going on hikes with their parents. My 5 and 11 year old loved jumping from rock to rock. Be sure to wear water shoes. You can easily stay dry on the hike as well by sticking to the path along the stream. We found a box turtle on the path. And butterflies. Moderate traffic, people with dogs, folks hanging out at the waterfall and smoking weed. There’s a great kids playground at the start of the blue trail as well. Plenty of shade. Only complaint is the trail markers are terrible. We stuck to the path, but it was awful when there was more than one worn path, trying to figure out where to turn, particularly at the end of the loop when you need to turn around and the blue trail seems to intersect with another trail.

My boyfriend and I spent an enjoyable afternoon here with our pup. The trails were pretty well-maintained, though, as others have mentioned, they are tricky to navigate in places due to poor trail markers. Nevertheless, the park is small enough that you don't worry about getting lost. It's easy enough to put yourself back on track. Our pup had a great time swimming and jumping around in the water. The hike itself was not strenuous, and I would definitely venture back here again.

I love this little park but the trails can be confusing. Luckily it's so small, it's hard to get lost. I like to take a trail down from the lower parking lot, make my way to the stream, and follow that up to the highest lot, then follow the road down back to my car.

Trail markers and maps were a little confusing, but the scenery makes up for it.

Okay little nature walk. Nice and close.

The constant view of homes and parts of the park activity areas take away from a real chance to detach. However the sound of flowing water drowns out any city noise on certain parts of the trail. Also everyone had large dogs, so if you have an untrained pet forget about it.

possibly my favorite trail. close to the city, easy to do if you just need a quick hike.

I've been here many times, but today is the first time I've ventured off the blue trail. Yellow trail has been cleaned up since last person said there were downed trees blocking it, and we were able to complete the entire loop. Beautiful, and surprisingly not many people there for how nice of a day it was.

Great park. Wear good shoes to get traction crossing the stream on the rocks. A few different trails to take, many of which have a few pretty steep parts, but not necessary to go down them. great for all ages, nothing too difficult and pretty scenery.

Good trail with varying degrees of difficulty, easily followed. The yellow trail seems to be blocked by fallen trees down by the stream. We had to back track and go around, unable to complete the loop.

Worst trail I've ever hiked. The trail was indistinguishable, and the markings were hard to find.

Lots of inclines/declines unsafe to run. Start of the trail is at Texas and Glen Rd and starts off straight down a hill of rocks. Good hike/nature walk but not running.

Tons of trash all over the place, especially at the beginning of the trail. It's a shame because it really is a beautiful trail that hugs a stream of rushing water. I also had my young children and my dog with me. We were unable to manage crossing the stream with young (under 6) children. If this is "kid friendly" I would say only for ones who are nimble on their feet and able to navigate potentially slippery rocks by themselves.

This is my least favorite park for trail walking in MD. Too much litter and too noisy.
