They’ve found a lot of dead bodies in this park. Be mindful of that and get out before dark.

Flat, easy, entirely paved trail. I would say this is more of a walk than a hike. The trail by the lake was closed for construction.

Rode the trail today, and there was a tree down, some closed areas where I had to go around in gravel but I had a good time. It's peaceful there... still a gem in the crime-infested city.

The trail improvements by Friends of Stony Run are amazing!! Dont forget: the northern and southern trails are connected around University Parkway by a small street called Linkwood Rd! Around 5 miles if you do the whole thing

Good for a stroller but I don’t know where the start and end was. We started at a 6.5 mile marker based on the coordinates given by this app and then we made it all the way to the start of the trail without ever getting back to a car. We had to call an Uber. Maybe we should have taken the Gwynns Falls stream route instead of the trail route. There was a sign halfway through and we decided to do the trail route. Overall it’s very pretty, clean, and stroller friendly. We walked it with 2 toddlers. This was out first trail that we used from this app.

Fun little trail that cuts through the city. A lot of kids and a lot of dogs, a bit too congested for me.

Very easy. Best time is when all flowers are in bloom. Enjoy a picnic lunch on lawn. Great for kids to run around.

Beautiful trail along the river through the city, but you don’t feel like you’re in the city at all. You can hike out at lots of different points to go explore some Baltimore neighborhoods or take snack breaks.

Shaded and well-maintained trail through neighborhoods in north Baltimore. It is interrupted in three or four places by fairly busy streets. It's well-trafficked, but not busy. I see lots of kids on the path. It's an uphill climb, but not a steep incline.

Nothing spectacular, just a simple surroundings in a safe environment.

Beautiful views of the city and water, including a restored marshland where we spotted a pair if osprey hunting. A bit hot in the sun, but would make a gorgeous evening walk.

There are several small trails at Cylburn. The trails, however, are not exactly visible from the parking lot but the staff in the Vollmer building can point you in the right direction. The trails are very easy and marked (once you reach them!). There is a nice patio outside of the Vollmer building where you can sit, etc. there are also some picnic tables spread throughout the grounds.

I mixed in the Franklintown loop with this one—I only saw half a dozen people on the trail the whole time and felt very safe hiking. The only part that is confusing is when you reach the Gwynn’s falls from the Hutton trail. The gas line cut obscures the “Old Spring Trail” entrance and the sign is covered with weeds. FYI it’s almost immediately to your right as you reach the 0 mile marker of the Hutton trail at the Gwynn’s falls. Other than that the poison ivy levels were low and avoidable and there’s a lot of old growth tuliptrees and oaks along the way!

Its an easy hike. The water didnt seem to be very clean, but a great place for a small hike and also there is a kids park(tiny one).

Excellent trail for endurance training. Its close to the city and mostly flat which makes it ideal for running. A few road closures due to constructions, just before the herring run greenway begins.

UPDATE July 25, 2019 All of the Grist Mill Trail and also the upper old River Road is OPEN so you can now do the big loops - All the trees in the NEW Grist Mill section are just babies so you are in total SUN LIGHT. - During the summer be sure to carry plenty of water to drink. - The entire trail is paved in blacktop. - If you are hiking between Ilchester Rd. and the Swinging Bridge be careful crossing the section where the bridge is washing out. - Rocks have been piled up to walk across but this spot can flood during a storm. - Flood signs are posted.
