Awesome set of trails through some beautiful nature. Lots of mountain bikers. Not too many people, even on a Saturday.

Fun and challenging with a few short areas where you have to walk your bike because it’s too steep

Nice easy trail with gorgeous views of the Loch Raven Reservoir. We backtracked a bit near the end to add some extra time. This will definitely become one of our go-to quick weekday hikes.

This was the first "real" trail I hiked back in 1999 and it kicked my butt, but it also made me fall in love with hiking. I come back often and would categorize it as easy. On weekends when the road is closed, most foot traffic is on the road, not the trails, but parking can be tricky.

On the part of the trail closest to the bridge, there is a side trail that adds distance and some small hills. It loops back into this trail near the road. It's pretty easy to spot the trail but it's not marked.

My boyfriend and I spent an enjoyable Monday afternoon meandering along this trail. We easily found parking, but had it been a nicer day on a weekend, it may have been trickier. We caught some views of the waterfront as the foliage has not yet filled in for the spring season. It was an easy, dry walk, but recent rainfall would make this trail quite muddy. I would revisit this trail to do some running or even just to get out of the house for fresh air. This was a very relaxing way to spend my day.

Great trail, didn't think it was moderate though, on the easier side. Very friendly people. Lots of families with small children down by the water.

I've hiked around the reservoir many times. I've done hikes as short as an hour and as Iong as 5 hours. My favorite starting spot is off dulaney valley just before the bridge over the reservoir. From here you can take the service road on the left which leads down to the reservoir after about a mile. From there you can hike another 5 miles or so, weaving your way along the water. You'll see fisherman, turtles, lots of vegetation and not very many people.

I had some trouble finding the trail path. I parked along the side of Dulaney Valley Road and then walked up a hill along a large path. This was on the left side of the road if you are heading north. I hiked along there for about 1.5 hours total, plus walked down to the reservoir. I do not know where the large path led but it didn't have views of the reservoir, I think it was a service road. I saw about 6 other people there. I will return again to do a longer hike and print out maps beforehand.

Many miles of trails around the reservoir, for hiking, biking and horses. Water views. You can go as long or as short as you want. Lots of side trails, and they connect with Cromwell Valley Park trails. Good hiking. Good phone and GPS signal.

Great Views on a leisure trail. There are a lot of rabbit trails around to explore. I think this is what they mean by 6.5 miles. trail is a mountain bike trail in truth. It's easy to find 5+ miles of trail without doubling up. A ton of wildlife around every time I go, especially deer. I prefer picking up one of the trails that drops down and follows the shore line and eventually circle back up to the loop. My Dog can't get enough of it. the Elev gain's depend on where you choose to go. I haven't mapped it but I'd be surprised if there's actually a 1000 ft gain from the water to the top of the hills in the area. a few parking spots located at the corner of Dulaney Valley Rd / Providence Rd right at the trail head. I've seen 1 Black snake so you might want to consider boots.

Its not a very long trail and its very light more like a walk through the woods and some areas of the reservoir. I don't know where the 6.5 mile was from as the detail. My dog loved the walk.

This trail is nowhere near 6.5 miles (more like 2mi), and it's nowhere near moderate difficulty. It's more like a nice woodsy trail to have a stroll with your dog. That's about it.

Great family hiking and Mt. Biking trail. Start up hill in a wide easy path. At the power lines head to your right. At the 2nd trail on the left start to work your way back now but by adding to your trail. Go left at the next trail head and head down to the beach for some added fun before you jump back on the trail and hike back to you car!
