A short trail with parking at the trailhead that leads into the Pulpit Rock Preserve trail system. Great all year hiking (snowshoes or spikes recommended in ice/snow weather). Mellow for kids. End of trail features Pulpit Rock, an amazing mini canyon/waterfall feature that is smack dab in the middle of this wildlife preserve. Wildlife includes birds (including various raptors, turkeys, woodpeckers), deer, beavers, groundhogs, porcupines, beavers, and even the occasional weasel if you know where to look. This trail leads to the center of the Pulpit Rock nature preserve and features many different short trails that allow you to piggy back through the system and even all the way to Joppa Hill Farm.

Other than the amount of mosquitos & bugs (probably due to us getting there at 4pm), it was a great walk! We saw lots of different trees, plants, multi-colored mushrooms, frogs & slugs. Had a great time!

First time coming here with a 14week puppy. Great trails, beautiful rock formations. Too bad the drought dried the water up.

This was our first hike with a 2 1/2 and 5 year old. They both did great on the trail and loved it!
