Love love this trail. Great for everything. Biking, walking or running. Family & pet friendly. It's a flat dirt trail. The Gunpowder River runs along side of it. Things to see at different areas along the way!

Depending on the day, you can have a really relaxing walk or a nearly stressful jaunt with too many bikers, dogs, and kids.

The trail is extremely crowded which makes it difficult to enjoy the natural beauty of the area.

Beautiful setting but the state of MD is letting this jewel go rusty. For biking the trail has deteriorated over the past few years. Very bumpy, and the latest insult is the fact that they dug it up for gas lines and did not restore the trail to a decent shape. I hope some maintenance can be done on the trail

I've run the beginning 6 miles out and back twice. Beautiful stream bottom with several ports potties and water coolers in the first 6 miles. Really nice in fall with colorful leaves.

A nice trail to bike. Can easily do half out and back in a few hours. Lots of places to stop.
