The trail was great! Trail was paved and very well kept. The view is pretty, easy to find parking. No trash along the trail. Ended up going Over the swing bridge and hiking the cascade fall trail which was pretty steep and extremely well kept and easy to track the trail throughout the way.

Great beginner hike. A little boring for me. I took my 3 year old twins. They loved it. Great for kids.

Not really hiking, more like a walk in the woods with A LOT of other people and children. I’ve done this trail many times, but didn’t enjoy it as much this weekend because of the crowds.

Great Trail! We had fun walking this trail although parts of it... particularly the Franklintown Loop.. was overgrown and muddy and hardly appeared to be a trail. Still we enjoyed ourselves and even saw a herd of galloping deers along the way.

Nice trail leads towards the arboretum with plenty of wildlife to view.

Loved it! Check out the nature art installations nearby the Carrie Murray nature center!

Great for a quick hiking fix. After the first hill, the path is wide and easy to manage until the second half which features more hills and access trails to residential developments. There are multiple creek crossings that are fun to maneuver and you may (mud pending) be forced to look for a better access point a little farther up the crossing. There are many uncharted trails at the very end of this trail just waiting to be explored. Nothing intense, but sure worth checking out once, especially if you're not planning on going far.

A small loop trail overlooking the Baltimore harbor. The views of the harbor were decent. This trail is probably best for runners though.

nicely maintained trails with varying terrain.

it's a nice trail, with something's to find along the way, keep your eyes out! it was crazy muddy though, which can be expected since it just snowed a few days days ago. But overall a nice trail. There weren't many people on it in the middle of the day on friday.

So it's an easy walk around a lake. it is all paved and there are some exercise stops along the way with equipment and a frisbee golf course. There was a lot of trash though, which I suppose can be expected being in the city. I will go here again if I have to, other than that probably not, I would rather drive the extra few mins and go on one of the hiking trails close by instead.

I walk here with my dog every week. Today, we were tangled when we got out of the car, so I let him off the leash. He started to go to the bathroom, so I let him go before I put his leash back on. Less than one minute with his leash off and I was being written a ticket by a park ranger (literally while picking up my dog’s droppings). I understand the “no dogs off leash” policy well. This seemed a bit extreme. *Great walk here, just giving dog owners a heads up! Very strict, borderline absurd, policy regulation.*

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.
