Note: To get to Little Gunpowder proper you have to cross the bridge on Bel Air Road and go down the stairway. If you attempt to cross at Hartford there is a narrow bridge with no pedestrian access that would be extremely dangerous to walk across since vehicles cannot see you as they come around the corner so walk back the same way.

My husband, our 3 year old son, and our golden retriever puppy did 4 miles of the trail. It was beautiful and peaceful. Good for families with small kids; they can walk for awhile and then be put in the carrier. We saw a group of firefighter cadets and 5 couples on the path. We will be doing this one again!

this trail is great, I am a novice mountain biker, but have plenty of history on 2 wheels. At first, I wasn't impressed at all, until about 2 miles in (after the open field of power line towers) my opinion instantly changed and I was having a blast.
I gave 4 stars because of the rocks and roots, some spots are nearly impossible to ride through. I walked for a total of about 10 minutes in the first 2 miles.

Nice easy hike. Watch the switch over at Bel Air Road. Ended up on the trail on the south side of the river but that was fine. Nice picnic area for after the hike.

My amateur attempt at trail running, but a seriously awesome trail! A few areas of slick mud today, I think it rained 2 or 3 days ago. The parking lots were almost at capacity, but only ran into a few people on my run.

Nice hike along the Gunpowder, Well marked trail. Note: one of the streams kinda a pain to cross when it runs high but it was actually pretty fun.
