Went hiking while there was about 5 inches of snow on the ground and it was beautiful. A little harder to hike but that was by our choice. Very well marked as well. There are many trails to choose from as well. We will be going back multiple times.

I loved this trail! lots of different terrain and sites to see. A little hard to follow at times. I believe I stayed on the course but I ended up walking over 10 miles not 7.

The white trail was great, we enjoyed with the kids and dog. When we decided to take the orange trail, Jessie’s Trail, it became more challenging. Very rocky and uphill.

Well trafficked, large hill then flat.

Beautiful scenery with some hills to get your heart rate up.

so we didn't do the whole thing S we got to a sign saying no trespassing about half way through. Since it was a big sign right at the gate figured we better turn around. however it is a very easy trail, so if your looking for something super quick than you might like this one. It was good for our puppy since it was her first time out, our more seasoned dog, well she was bored, lol.

Beautiful winter hike. We hiked early Saturday, just before the snow fell. It wasn’t too cold. It was a little muddy in some places but most of the mud froze over, so it made it easier to pass through. The trail isn’t marked very well when you get to the middle. But overall, it was a blast! Definitely recommend.

I love this little loop. It’s clean, quiet, peaceful. The path is mostly paved. The parking lot can come up quick on you but it does exists so just go slow and keep looking. I would call it a place to take a walk not a hike though.

Nice short trail, but definitely room to explore to make it longer if you wanted to. Loved the quickness today with snow still on the ground, but just needing to get out.

A very nice park with well maintained trails. It does get a bit muddy, but the views of the loch raven dam are very nice.

The area around the Bench gets incredibly confusing since the trails somewhat disappear and some lead onto private property.

Have always enjoyed this one with my family. Great for bikes.

Well marked trails. Orange trail has a bit of up and down through the forest and Red Trail is relatively flat. Bathrooms/Port-o-Potties at both ends of the Red Trail.

short trail but awesome quick workout.

1-6, The park is beautiful and worth a visit! This trail recording was a very random “loop.” Needed to consult to app on a few sections. Took us a little under 2 hours

Nice trail for entire family. Enjoyed the day. Review the turtle trail as it has the same starting point. Best I can figure you combine the two to get more bang for your trip.

This is a lovely park overall and it makes for a nice walk. There’s a lot to see and cover.

Great short hike. I went in January. Lots of ice. I was fine in hiking boots. My pup loved it.

Accidentally took the blue trail and 6 miles became 11. Still a great hike on a well marked trail.

Decent winter hike.

Did this trail on 12/30/2018 and it was a really nice trail. Well marked, a bit muddy in spots but completely manageable. The uphill was gentle and the view at the top was beautiful. Perfect for a nice group outing on a beautiful day. I wouldn't call it "challenging" (barely moderate?) but it's got enough uphill that people with knee issues may have trouble.

Super easy hike! Beautiful!

Beautiful trail, even on a muddy winter day, with several pretty features like a river, waterfall, and winding paths with some light scrabbling over streams.

I hike this area mainly in the winter. - Most of the time I come here it's always muddy in many sections. - With the temperatures in the 30's and the ground basically freezing mud is no problem. - I didn't see anyone around but It was very windy out. - This is quite an easy area to hike or bike because its all basically flat. - I parked out on Landing Rd. today and hiked in. - During the summer you may want to park within the Sport Complex. One of the main trail heads is at the very end of the Sport Complex road.

A nice hike along the water. A few inclines but a fairly easy hike. Beautiful views at the lighthouse and inside of it.

This is my second favorite park to hike or bike in. - Well very maintained Park. - .All the trails are Flat. - There is Beavers and Birds in the Marsh area and Deer within other sections of the woods.- Being down by the waterfront be sure to bundle up if it's windy out. - Always colder by the water. - You can park in two locations and there is two Spot-A-Pots. - Yes, for most of us, it is across the Key Bridge and you have the add that cost but I truly recommend you checking it out at least once. - Super easy hiking for the kids too.

Great hike. It was very windy.

I agree with the other reviews that this should be considered moderate. Had some difficulty finding the trailhead, but it was a great hike otherwise.

The Dam is completely gone and they are grading the hill to be able to complete the Grist Mill Trail. - I spoke with the State Park Supervisor regarding the Grist Mill Trail. - He informed me that when the construction crew finished up top where the dam was then work will start on the sections down below. The only damage below in the Memorial Day storm was two Foot Bridges and the parking lot at the Pond. I will keep you up to date regarding this matter. - This is basically why I have been hiking one side of the park more then the other. - The Grist Mill is the main connector to the entire Baltimore County side of the Avalon, Orange Grove, Hilton, Glen Artney and Hilltop trails.
