Many off shoots from the main trail and the Map GPS doesn't seem to match up with what you are walking, oh well still fun!!!

This is basically my backyard, spent most of the summers in my teens sliding down Atkisson Dam(do not attempt)and field trips to Harford Glen throughout my schooling. Until coming to this site I had no idea there was a looping trail, would always just go up and back. I found the whole loop to be extremely easy and very enjoyable. I always start on Winters Run rd./Singer Rd and go up past the dam first and onto the Harford Glen housing area where you will get the most scenery, especially for the bird watchers. No time for pictures today, will post next time.

This is an awesome trail to run if you do the whole thing, which is not clearly marked. There are many elevation changes and the mileage is inaccurate; it's more like 5.5-6 miles from Singer Rd over the old bridge and back around the other side to Singer Road. It takes a solid hour at a brisk pace.
The scenery constantly changes and you often see wildlife like deer, birds and beavers. It is an intense workout and very fun as you go over and under logs, through streams, over rocks and roots and up and down hills. I highly recommend it!

It's a nice hike, but the trail blazes are terrible. Ended up doubling back many times because diverging random access trails weren't identified. Also 4 miles into the loop the only way across the stream is a closed bridge causing another retreat to a location where you can cross over. If you're very familiar with the trails it would be good but you can't complete this loop as marked.
