While the footing is good, it is a vigorous, rolling hilly trail. You will either be climbing or descending with little to no flat areas. The first 1/3 out is right along the reservoir offering great views as you go up Miners Hill. Once past Miners hill you move away from the Reservoir into the forest. The last one third of the way out has the best views as you trace the top of the ridgeline out to the peninsula point. I did this during the summer, so I believe that once all the foliage falls off in late fall you will be rewarded more for your efforts.

This is a nice hike. Has some hills throughout so it's a nice workout. A LOT of side trails. Though the main trail is blazed mostly and pretty wide, it's easy to either a) be way too curious (like me) and wander off into the side trails or b) simply take the wrong trail. You get little peaks of the reservoir throughout the hike and the nice main view at the "end" of the hike. I sat and had lunch there. Lightly trafficked earlier in the day and once you get a little farther in you can no longer hear traffic from the main road.

I found the trails to be very clean and well marked but I used this app if I wasnt sure and it worked perfectly. Moderate hike with a some up and down. Make sure you don't miss the start- it is immediately on your right as soon as you cross the bridge over the reservoir coming from Eldersburg. All in all a great hike, would def go again!
