Nice trail once you find it since the trailhead is not well marked. Need to go up staircase from parking lot off Ouella Ave.

The Trolly Trail is a nearly straight, paved path and that's about a mile and a half one way. It's pretty underwhelming. Basically just a stretch of bike path. But, protip if you're hoping for a little adventure: stay off the path. Hike through the riverbed instead. You'll come across all kinds of interesting stuff. It's all traversable, with a little rock hopping and and some climbing. And in the spots where the riverbed diverges from the path--which happens a lot--you'll see some of the most beautiful and interesting formations. Definitely recommended for the riverbed adventure, not so much for the bike path.

It was a great day for a hike with temperatures in the 70's. We started at Ellicott City and hiked up to The Breadery. We even stopped by and said hi to Jay at the corner Country Store. On the way back we took a side trail to the historic Banneker's Park. We saw lots of birds and even a few small woodpeckers. The trails is well marked and we enjoyed the history information about Benjamin Banneker. It was Sunday so the museum was closed but you are allowed to walk the grounds and even have a picnic... On the way back we stopped and had lunch at the Trolley Stop Restaurant. Great Trolley Burger with ham and fries.

It's a nice trail. I saw quite a few birds. It's a nice walk through the woods but not challenging or especially interesting.
