Great first of many trips to Lums Pond. Did the Little Jersey and a small portion of Swamp Forest. This trail system is well worth the 50min. drive from Baltimore Co.

Really nice trail through the woods and around Brecknock Park. The trail through the woods has a nice stream running alongside of it but as other have commented, this trail literally does go through people’s backyards. The wooded area is where you experience this. Other than that the trail was very well maintained and great for taking the kids out or walking the dog.

Nice path out to the observation tower with great views!

Very nice trail through the woods out to the marsh. Trail maintained well. On AllTrails it starts back in the refuge and takes the road to the trailhead for Parson Point so part of the trail is on the road.

Nice wooded trail out to the observation tower. Unfortunately the trail listed here on AllTrails is wrong and not what the actual trail is. Made the recording difficult because the trail here takes you off trail and into the woods versus the path made by the wildlife refuge. The map on here need to be updated.

Nice views but the entire trail is the road through the refuge. You can do the whole trail from your car which I would recommend versus hiking/walking it. Not really sure why this is listed as a trail in my opinion.

I really enjoyed this trail. The views are spectacular along the boardwalk portion of the trail. The boardwalk itself is very nice and well maintained. There’s a really nice seating area along the water, great for taking a break and taking in the amazing scenery and wildlife!

Nice views from the observation tower. The trail actually starts at the visitors center and goes along the road to the Raymond Observation Tower. Wish there was more wooded parts of the trail.

Loved this walk. Trails easy to follow and places to sit and enjoy the woods. Easy walk. Would be good for younger kids.

Very nice and quiet hike. It wasn’t marked very easily but it wasn’t hard to get around. Other than a few nice bicyclists, it wasn’t crowded at all, especially for a weekend and being one of the nicer days heading into winter.

Pleasant walk. Just under 5 miles if you add the spurs. Close to roads so a good bit of road noise for half of the walk. Not challenging, if that is what your looking for. Trails are good and well marked. Easy access with a good number of people, but far from crowded.

nice scenic especially when leaves are turning in fall.

Amazing!

Amazing!

Nice wildlife area. Very pretty scenery and winds through the marshes and wetlands. Great bird watching opportunities. The entire trail is a gravel road. Not the greatest hiking and the trial doesn’t go through the woods. There’s some satellite trails off of it and observation towers which are cool and changes things up. Cars are allowed to drive on the trail so watch out. Overall a nice walk but not the greatest if you’re looking to hike.

Where the side trails that go through the woods are located are pull offs. You could drive the majority of the trail and just hike the pull offs. Overall a nice walk but not the greatest if you’re looking to hike.

Awesome trail! I was not expecting there to be so many inclines but it was awesome. Beautiful scenery and sounds. My dog loved it as did I. Cut half way through but will do the whole trail one day!

Magnificent this time of year, fell down on some loose earth and rock. Fractured my fibula and crawled last half mile back to my car.

Nice easy loop around the pond

AMAZING TRAIL!!! Great for a hard workout, beautiful scenery. However, I did see a spotted lanternfly during my walk, which means they are present in that area and should be reported to 1-888-4BADFLY ASAP! They cannot harm humans, however they are extremely dangerous towards trees, plants, agriculture in general.

A nice kid- friendly hike. We needed to use strollers and overall, it worked well. My only complaint is that it wasn't marked well where it overlapped with the bike loop, and so we got a bit off track.

As you can see I started off on the trail & went back. So I didn’t technically complete this one. My friends pup had other plans in mind.

Beautiful Gardens to walk around. Different looking each season. The route as of this writing only shows the paved path route, but there are many unpaved trails to explore. We rook a .5 mile loop through a woods trail for example making the total route 2.5 miles Easy rating is accurate. I would call this a walk, rather than a hike. Very nice children's area called Enchanted Woods. For history buffs, tour the museum which used to be the home of Henry DuPont. Only downside is you have to be a member, or pay to get in.

Very nice trail wish we could have stayed longer. Pond was a little dry since there had not been much rain before we came. Beautiful near the beach!
