Very pretty, short, easy hike. This is a great place for family pictures.. I saw people doing that both times I went here. The fall colors are beautiful at sunset. The first section has a nice wooden platform to walk on. And at the end of the platform you can walk to the river and see both the car bridge and the train bridge over the Monocacy river. The trail continues and loops back to the lake/parking area. Very pretty spot.

Short trail, but it's great to go around a few times.

Easy walk with boardwalk through the marshy/wooded area. Nice creek to hop in if you so desire. Gambrills Mill manor is also a really cool spot to picnic.

Pretty little loop. I love just going there to sit by the Monocacy river.

The trail crosses the area where Union soldiers advanced and retreated on July 9, 1864 as they delayed an advancing Confederate army threatening Washington DC. The trail starts at the old Gambrill Mill, winds through thin woods past the old mill race to a spectacular view of a railroad bridge over the Monocacy River. The first half of the trail is generally in shady trees, while the remainder is in more open country. Historical markers describe the battle action in this area. A very nice walk!
