first of all this is 90% paved and very highly trafficked. It is right off a major highway a lot of the time and not a hike for those who enjoy peace and quiet. All the concrete definitely killed my feet, but this trail is about as flat as possible in MD and definitely shouldn't be rated as hard. The start is the middle of a neighborhood and parking is an issue. If you head closer to the park you will find much better parking, and won't have to walk along a really busy street to get into the park.

Trail probably ok for paved biking once in the actual park, but for hiking spend your time elsewhere.
