Great location for trail running.
Many trails, they can get confusing.
Park is very well maintained. Always clean and freshly mowed. The trails do have some erosion and exposed roots. Run carefully. Lots of hills of varying elevations and some nice flat stretches.
All in all a great place for hiking, biking, running, and horseback riding.

A wonderful 1200 acre area highlighting the Little Gunpowder Falls as it transects the Piedmont. Well maintained trails, blazes are apparent but trail intersections can sometimes be confusing. GO WHEN THE LEAVES ARE DOWN! A totally different experience as the sight-lines extend considerably in the winter. Also, the human traffic is considerably less. The Harford Co. side of the river (white trail) is exposed to the sun, but the ridge blocks the north wind. Very comfortable on a sunny winter day. Many trail options. Try it.

Wonderful horseback riding trails. Can be a little confusing which turns to take. I would follow previously mapped out trail so you don’t get lost. There are places for horses to drink on little gunpowder trail. I recommend the Boundry trail, Pond loop, and little gunpowder trail. Going back to map out more. The entire Boundry Trail is a two hour ride at the walk.

We took a den of Cub Scouts (10 boys), three parents and two siblings on a 3 mile hike. Great, easy trail for kids and a lot of variety. This is a great family trail!

Took a Den of Cub Scouts on this trail, and they did great. Started out at the parking lot on the Harford County side, took the blue and white trails following the river. There are lot of opportunities for conservation projects on these trails. We also used this as an education of multiple types of people using the trail. We did run across a horse and the boys were able to practice what they learned.

This is a fantastic place to hike and just go and relax- no worries of getting lost with the signage. I recommend the White or the Blue trails as they are longer and there is so much to see.

I love running the Sweet Air trails. Always a good mix of foliage, terrain, and views. The park is very large, so it's easy to feel like you're in the middle of nowhere very fast - good escape for me! I take my kids and my dog here when we want to do a quick hike, and recommend these trails to everyone. Sadly, many don't even know this park exists! My only beef is that the locals with horses trash parts of the trail that are dedicated to hiking only. It also would be nice if the horse crowd did some trail maintenance every so often. The Balto county side is pretty much a mudhole with massive hoof marks year round. Also, heads-up the Balto county side is more overgrown and not as well marked.

Good trail. The part I started on took me through a massive corn field. That was pretty cool. There are quite a few different options to hike in this area. I did the yellow loop, red, and orange loop. Didn't try the boundary trail since I was running out of daylight. Maybe next time. Not too crowded.

We didn't quite get the full trail since we didn't want to cross the river but it was a fun little ride ended up doing a mix of trails.
