Started at Jerusalem Mill and I definitely recommend grabbing a paper copy of the map (then take a pic on your phone) because it was raining when we went but also the trail markers were not super clear. We crossed the highway twice and got to see some cool graffiti, crossed small rivers a few times and walked along some power lines. Overall the hike was really nice, some cardio (moderate ups and downs) and I liked the terrain challenges.

Easy trail with minimal elevation. But it was a nice walk with wide walkways- perfect for walking, running, biking , and dog walking

Absolutely amazing! Even got to tour Jerusalem mill after!

First time on this trail. It was a bit muddy, but it had rained earlier that day and it honestly could've been worse. Fairly decent trail with random spots where you come out of tree cover and into open(ish) fields. Spent a decent amount of time near the water before the path started going higher up. Not as many super photogenic spots as my preferred trails but i liked it none the less. Went around 9am and it was beautifully quiet with sounds of nature(my preference). Don't know if I'll go back from a photography standpoint, but it had s fairly good cardio impact I wasn't expecting and that might convince me to come back. Overall not a bad trail.

Nice trail with easy start if you start with Jarusalem or finish if you finish with it. Little Gunpowder trail had a relatively major change from the map and the map should be updated, but the modification was well marked. I brought my dog and he loved it.

This trail was a moderate-easy trail with a few big hills, but otherwise tame. There was one section where you really have to pay attention to the AllTrails map because it’s not clearly marked and now (September 2019) the path/ field was overgrown with tall grass. Otherwise I had no issue following the blue/white trailheads. :) Plentiful parking at the Mill, dogs welcomed, a little rocky (so I wouldn’t bring your grandma) but it was a great, chill time!

Rocky trail in some parts, but a lot of fun! The river was gorgeous. The trails got a little confusing during the last portion, but using the app really helped!

This is an easy hike.

The trail was very poorly marked, there are at least three places with two or more paths without a spec of paint in sight. The parking lot will fill up quickly, so get there early. The trail had some lovely views, particularly of the water. It was rather muddy in sections even though it had been more than a day since it last rained. There are sections with significant overgrowth, so pants are advisable.

Beautiful day for a hike. No rain for a week so the trail was dry. The trail starts out in a field. The first opening in the woods is the white trail (Gunpowder) and is a nice loop. The second opening is Jerusalem (blue). The blue and white intersect so be mindful of the trail or bring a map and do both. We did both. There are a lot of spots to get in the water. Nice easy slopes for anyone including dogs. My dogs enjoy the water and had a blast. Some parts of the trail are narrow so we had to backtrack to allow people to pass. Other than that the trails are clearly marked and have a lot of shade.

A nice trail and good for dogs but I would not consider it a moderate difficulty
