The start of this hike is not marked well, but after 3/4 of a mile, the white blazes are evident. However, they disappeared after a while and we ended up having to find our way via this app. Beautiful hike though!

Lots of mountain bikers. Not the best marked, but the path is well tread and easy to follow. Terrain isn't difficult but it is narrow. Parking near the restaurant across the bridge, but not a ton.

Nice trail between river and civilization. best suited for horse and mountain bike. No rock climbing. Beautiful vegetation and river views. Should be rated as easy.

I agree with the rest of the posters here. Really pretty scenery and a nice hike but terrible signage. We started on Granite Trail but ended up coming out on Quarry Trail because we lost the first one.

Great trail with very diverse and beautiful scenery! A good test if your orienteering (lack if signage)!

Awesome trail in terms of wildlife and good workout because can be longer then 6 miles. However make sure to pay attention because very little signage and bring a good GPS.

There were tons of trails at this location with access to the water which was nice. The biggest issue was nothing was marked! No signs anywhere. We took wrong turns several times which nearly doubled the 5 mile distance we expected. Definitely do not go without a good GPS. Not what we expected at a state park.

Great Hike along the Patapsco! Dog friendly, moderate elevation.
