Summer was initiated two days ago, so this was my first summer hike of 2018. I started out at ~6:15 am in pouring drizzle rain and ended in less drizzle but damp conditions. This was fine, no running was intended (at first). I mention the rain because it affected my GPS and navigation in this area, the whole way— be forewarned.

About the hike: I began on an old rail trail that is unmaintained; the wrong way from where I wanted to go. I simply picked up the wrong trail from the parking lot. Again, navigation was an issue. You have to walk from the parking area to your point of start. I had other plans for the morning so I ended up jogging on occasions to make up lost time (again, not my original plan). As the reviewer before me stated, the course takes you around the old mill. The markings are fading, and there is quite a bit of open field hiking with no markings, so I relied on GPS navigation. Obviously, I went off course several times. I bypassed the Land of Promise Trail near the end, but I didn’t want to shortchange on mileage, so I did an out-n-back on Mason-Dixon Trail at the finish.

All in all a great hike, except for the poor markings in some key places. I hope to return to do Land of Promise.

I def was not on the Susquehanna Loop for the majority of my hike. I want to go back and try again, follow the red blazes for the Susquehanna Loop trail. I followed orange and blue, which were great trails as well, but not the trail I was looking for.

Nice easy trail, wonderful views, will be going back to this one for sure....kids loved it.

Nice trail, very flat and wide with gravel. Great path for a jogger stroller and kids.

This trail takes you around the old mill and by the Susquehanna River. It also takes you to a small man made waterfall that is truly beautiful.

Nice hike, wet parts due to the recent snow but dog loved it! Would go again

This was a fun hike with some good scenery. I kinda did it in two loops by accident. After coming back to my truck I figured out the part I missed and hiked that too. My recommendation is to start hike to left of mansion. Just go under pipe crossing up stairs and bear left. Historic walk to white land of promise. I'm pretty sure you'll walk by big tree other people have mentioned. It's big! From there follow rock run yellow and you get to walk along nice creek for a little. When you come to man made dam cross road to Wilkinson and grab the orange blaze ( left) from there. After that your on the trail according to app. This way you'll come down ( later) ridge trail red and that's a pretty good ascent.

This trail is wonderful for bird watching and views of the water. The main oath offers numerous water access points where you can spot herons, hawks, and eagles. Black vultures have become quite populated in this area and their numbers can be overwhelming!

Great trail from dam parking lot to Stafford, very flat and wide along the river. A nice smaller trail branches off down to the train bridge. Great mountain biking. I’m looking forward to exploring the rest of the trails.

Great hike, but not moderate. It’s easy as can be.

Definitely not hard. I expected to see a little more water but you're surrounded by trees the whole time so you don't get to see too much. But overall it was a good hike. Wasn't too hard but it had some challenges.

4-star as it was no way near a "Hard" trail. I will consider this a moderate trail at the most. The description of the route is slightly confusing or maybe we missed something. The route (shown in red) is not accurate if we compare the description with the park trails map here http://dnr.maryland.gov/publiclands/Documents/SSP_map.pdf

Great fall day of hiking on our way to the camp area.

I'd say this is easy not moderate. User footwear of choice seems to be sneakers. Trail is wide, flat, topped with gravel. Parking is across the bridge on the other side of the road where folks are putting into the water.

Wide, multi purpose trail that offers trekkers, great scenery and sights of the Susquehanna River.

absolutely breathtaking view when the trail comes out of the forest into the open hilly fields! Hay bales and sunshine. So pretty. We aren't experienced hikers, and although there were some steep parts of this trail we made it through. Well worth it.

lots of trails to make the hike as long as you like.

So many different habitats!

Great trail! Beautiful scenery and the path was clearly marked and easy to navigate for the most part. Had fun climbing over rocks and a tree trunk to cross the water and it's a lot of uphill work but worth the trek!

One of the better trails I've done at this park. Great site seeing! Had a BLAST!

Great challenge!

Great trails, Great site seeing. friendly people.

It was a rainy trek today but still a great a walk- saw 6 bald eagles today.

Good fall views of the river. some elevation changes. Clear and easy trail to run.

Great scenery. Nice flat and fast trail to run. Parking is not the best but manageable. I'll be going regularly.

great scenery to go along with a challenging ride. Along the Greenway trail was a peaceful fun adventure taking you up the river. Moving on to some of the parks inner trail is where it got difficult! Amazing place, will definitely be back soon!
