Clarksville, Maryland Map

Took two kids and a dog, had a great time. Muddy after rain, can’t wait for summer.

Lovely variety but note that the entrance is closed and you have to use a different one. Also, the recorded trail in AllTrails is inaccurate. There are big signs saying, “Not a Trail.”

Overcast-ed skies and the breeze make a hike in the meadows prefect. - Although I bike too, I am glad no bikes are allowed in this all natural area. - You have a mixed environment of Woods, Meadows and a Stream. - Do to a lack of shade in many sections, I never come here in the summer. I love all the different butterflies along the meadow trails of green grass. I always park on the lot at Trotter Rd. but space is limited.

Nice empty trails.

The wildlife trail is closed off due to construction but the south wind trail is available. Very pretty, took the dogs and they loved it. Beautiful stream half way through as well

Fantastic for hikes with kids and dogs. Didn’t encounter anyone else on the path. Paths are wide in most places and mowed down enough to be comfortable to hike/walk. There’s a nice little point to access the river, with a sandy/rocky little cove where the dog and kids could wade. Well marked paths. Nice variety of loops. The original access is currently under construction. Follow Trotter Rd through the traffic circle (when you’re coming from 108) and look for the pedestrian crossing signs. We parked in the court across the street, walked the paved trail and were able to access the grass trails a little ways down. This app makes it easy to see how to get onto the trails.

easy and scenic so it is not boring

Nice easy trail. Some pretty pastures and water. The markings could be a little better though. It is in a nature preserve and there are some areas that look like trails but are off limits

It's easily accessible and not usually very busy- loops are easy to combine to make a longer run

Easy trail for hiking with young kids.

If you'd like a quick hike this is a great one. 2.4 easy miles. We did it in the winter but I'd bet it's pretty in spring/summer. Encountered several other hikers. There is a nice trail map that explains all the environmental improvements they r attempting.

NIce trail, mostly out of the way, with a view of the patuxent river

An easy walk through the woods, at some points along a stream. Very pleasant.

It's hard to find a Howard County park in a more "natural" state without paved trails. This area fits the bill perfectly. It's a beautiful nature walk! Also very suitable for Trail Running. It mostly consists of dirt trails, and it's easy to stay on the path and find your way. Can be quite wet in portions, especially after a rain. It's not very crowded, and feels very much in the woods and away from the world. I highly suggest you stay on the trail, as there is a ton of poison ivy just off the path all along the pathways. You'll see a neat retro surprise along the trail as well. The parking lot is quite small. Do NOT use the Google Maps app to search for the park by name, as it dumps you into townhouse community in Columbia. This park is more towards River Hill, Great Star Dr. exit. It's off Trotter Rd.

Nice trail, wet in some areas, not a lot of traffic on the day we hiked

Nice trail. Even better when you follow loop 1 then retrace.
