Used this trail for a run while travelling. Routes are well marked and traffic was light. Side trails can easily add a couple miles to your route as well. Worth the trip!

Great hike down Creek Trail with my son. If you have kids make sure you get the Scavenger Hunt sheet at the head of the trail...kept him interested and reduced whining.

This was my first real trail after recovering from a severe ankle sprain a month prior, I only did the hill hike but there are a number of other low level trails to check out. This was a 2 mile hike and about 50 min of moving time, there is only one real lookout on top but it's a good one and it was only 15 minutes to the top from parking. I would imagine you could pull off looking at the sunset here and make it back if you double back before it gets too dark. This is a fairly easy trail but it is more moderate at the top with rocks. Very well maintained and marked.

loved this area. you could probably hike all the trails here in one day. they are very short and not too hard. monocacy hill trail is the one with the awesome view. cool old remains there where you get a little lesson in history.
