This is a great trail loop if you are pressed for time. The complete Rockburn loop and this part of Hop The Snake is a well used flat trail. The walk from the parking lot at the playground and the Ridge Trail section is a bit uphill.

I am a local senior hiker & backpacker of the Patapsco Valley State Park. The Orange Grove, Avalon, Glen Artney, Hilton and Hilltop areas have the best maintained trial in the Patapsco. I have hiked this trail many times. This loop recorded is a easy short trail for the kids with only one incline from the start then the rest is flat and easy.
