This is a fun, casual trail that loops around Lake Needwood, starting near East Gude Drive. It does require a short section of walking next to Needwood road. Dog friendly, however, Lake Needwood and the adjacent Lake frank often have high levels of toxic bacteria in them, which can cause severe liver damage to humans and pets if it is consumed, so avoid letting pets or people swim in the lake. Fishing and boating are permitted. Show more

Great multi-purpose trail -- especially good for mountain biking -- along Kengla and North Branch Trail. If on a bike, make sure to cross the creek under the MD-200 underpass. (Feet will likely get wet if there's been recent rain).Show more
