Easiest to navigate trail at Soldiers Delight. Typically muddy in the spring and fall, some stream crossing and great views

nice trail. this was our first hike. a good trail to break in our new shoes and walking sticks. great trail for a nice 2-3 hour quick hike. a lot of people on the trail and dogs but there was enough time that we were alone on the trail

A very enjoyable and rather easy hike even on this July summer day at noontime in 90+ degree heat. Most of the trail is in full sunlight. Only about 1/2 mile of it is in the shade. Do visit the visit center if you have the time and if it is open. Very knowledgeable staff. I learned a lot about serpentine rock/soil, chromite, and grassland ecology, and what made this place so unique not just in Maryland, but in the entire eastern seaboard.

Nice trail. Ran the Choate Mine, Red Run and part of the Dolfield trail sections. Could not figure out how to continue the Dolfield Trail from the 1.3 point on this map, back to Choate Trail. Ended up out on Dolfield Rd and took that back to Deer Pk Rd. Brought home an unwanted guest...a tick of some kind!

This trail is rated moderate but would probably consider it rather easy. Wet in many spots thanks to the forty days and forty nights of rain previously!

Ended up lost, some areas do not have signs. Almost beware of ticks and chiggers.
