I do this section of the Patapsco Valley State Park only when most of the trails are wet from rainstorms the night before. I always wait one day for the trails to dry out. This loop is All Paved in Blacktop. Easy hike and it's mainly all Flat with rolling hills. The complete section is mainly in the Shade. There are only one spot in the Sun and that's down by the Playground.

Pretty crowded on a Saturday afternoon, especially near the swinging bridge, but overall a lovely, fairly easy hike.

We did most of this trail while veering off here and there so our hike totaled 4.86 miles, but it was a beautiful day and lots to see on the hike. It was perfect for a first hike this season as we get our bodies used to it again, fairly level and even but the easy long decline at the start was definitely an incline to get the heart pumping by on the way back!! ...and the pups loved it!!
