** MESSAGE REGARDING CLOSURES **: The Soapstone Trail heading up to S. Rolling Rd. is OPEN but there are detours which places you on the new Star Struck trail. The Inner Soapstone is CLOSED. The Vineyard Trail is CLOSED.
The Santee Branch trail is OPEN but you have to access it via the Bike Jumper from the top end of Bull Run Trail. These three trails are the only ones OPEN on the Glen Artney side of the park which is the Baltimore County side. The Lost Lake parking lot and Grist Mill trail have been totally damaged from all the recent floods.
Your best option is to enjoy the Howard County side of the Park. When entering Avalon section turn left towards the Playground. Plenty of trails on this side. I have trail maps I created if you need help. baltoken@yahoo.com

I give it four because part of the trail was closed off and that was not known. They had signs at the beginning of the trail telling you to follow only the soapstone trail but then had the rest of the trail was cut off. So we ended up talking the bull road trail and trying to reconnect with the soapstone trail to end back up at he car . It was an mission. A fun one but not for beginners. We was deep in the woods and the trail was definitely overgrown. It was thorn bushes everywhere but me and my sister had fun exploring and we had an gps. It was all up hill and very windy. Definitely would do this wild trail again but do not go out in those woods without an gps!
