Roomie adventure. Went off-roading twice by walking along the railroad tracks & then hiking the steep hill to merge onto the beginning trail.

Pretty view of the Patapsco River. It is steep in certain spots, but there is usually something to hold on to nearby.

Too wet!

Paved trail around Centennial Lake. Nice distance. Pretty scenery.

this is one small section of the trail trail that will open gradually over 2020. fantastic flat surface, hike, bike, stroller, wheelchair friendly

This was a great trail and had a lot of beautiful overlooks and spots that let your imagination go back in time. Met some nice local hikers and enjoyed seeing so many people out on the trail.

This includes a flat area near the river and a walk through some nice words. Decently busy with a good number of dogs and also with exposure to the back of some neighborhoods. Convenient but not particularly adventurous.

Bridge is temporarily closed for repairs, but otherwise everything is well kept here. Nothing extraordinary, but pretty and enjoyable. Saw several dogs, which was a plus.

As always-a nice walking or jogging trail. Great for winter waterfowl birding.
