Great easy trail with wide paved area and easy off path trails. Great for walking your dog.

Took my kids 11 and 5 biking on this path. Perfect for training wheels or for learning to ride since it’s mostly level and the path is paved and very few ppl on it. If you start on Red Run Blvd, about a half mile down you will encounter a closed gate that says “trail ends” and beyond the gate is the Dolfield Rd & Pleasant Hill Rd intersection and bridge. But if you brave the traffic and cross that bridge, the paved trail continues another mile beyond that. However, then the pavement will end and you need to continue on foot to continue to the Soldiers Delight area. We simply turned around and went back to the beginning for a total of 2 miles. Nice and shaded too.

New to the Owings Mills area, and wanted to try something closer to home. Even though it weaves in and around the edge of developments, there are some really nice pockets of nature and quietude. When asphalt turns into dirt trail, the trails are really root filled or rock filled making the trail run a nice challenge. Stumbling into the old mine entrance was also really cool. Ended up taking this trail out to the serpentine loop which has a nice overlook of soldiers delight area. Easy to get to with back roads and a few parking spots at the trailhead.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this trail and I ended up being pleasantly surprised. The way in goes behind some apartment buildings and under a bridge, but once you get past that you're surrounded by nature. There's a nice stream, trees, rocks, an open field, wild flowers and more. We saw deer, tons of butterflies, cool insects and cardinals. The trail really takes you through some different scenes. We extended our hike a couple miles by just doing the marked loops and turn offs. It's a nice trail and very light traffic. I'd love to see it in autumn with the changing leaves.

Nice variety. There is a short paved section that is flat in some areas and a little hilly in others. There is also a few areas that have boardwalks. Additionally there is a portion that is primitive, but well maintained.
