Mud, so much mud. But a beautiful setting to slosh through, for sure. Parking over in Rockburn and walking the half mile to Patapsco was great because it’s paved and there are tons of spots! No jockeying for roadside spots.

Would love to try this loop on a different day - do not recommend going any time close to when it rains...muddy mess.

HikingGreat!

This trail is really beautiful! The woods are lovely and the trail is well kept. You may see runners and bikers on some portions but for the most part there’s no one. I recorded 8 miles.

Nice combination of trails, and nothing too difficult, BUT....as a couple of others have mentioned, the length is more like 10 miles rather than 7! So be prepared for that if you decide to do this one. We did it on a Sunday morning, so there were a fair number of bikers (and a few other hikers), but not so crowded that it caused us any problems.

As others have said definetly use your GPS for this trail.The trail is poorly marked. I would also say this is a more intermediate trail in spots.That said its super fun trail and definetly worth a little getting lost on.

What a nice quiet trail. We only came across 3 bikers and 2 other couples on 7 miles. I would highly recommend using your All Trails app as there are many side feeders and you can get off track easily. But very scenic, went through a few wet areas and enjoyed the sounds of the river. Will definitely go back.

Great trail overall, but I ended up going about 9 miles because I had to double back several times. The trails, especially at intersections and near the river, aren't clearly marked. Will be doing this again for a trail run, for sure.
