The Soapstone trail is a gradual incline or decline pending your direction. There are many small stream crossing so beware of the weather if calling for rain. Use a Trekking pole when crossing the stream. The rocks and logs can move on you. ( Watch your footing ) but very manageable. The trail color is ( Purple ) and the trees are well marked. You likely won't get lost on this trail even in the dark. This trail is one of the most popular because it runs down for the College. Some days you will see 5 or 10 runner most likely from the track team.

Strange weather pattern here in Halethorpe. Temperature today was 70 Degrees and tomorrow it's going to be only in the mid-40's. Great day for a local hike and when the weather is nice I am always out and about. The Soapstone trail is a gradual incline or decline pending your direction.
