Good hike today. Nice 6.5+ miles and no hard climbs. Certain areas were a little muddy.

Our first time on a family hike w a 3 yr old. She loved taking the cliff hike compared to the easy trail. I wish you could have a better view of the falls. Nice quick hike.

Worth it

Great trail for hiking with canine friends! Fun mix of field, forest, and stream. Some parts were put mucky from recent rain, but nothing unmanageable with hiking shoes/boots.

Nice trail and easy

We hiked this with our 12 year old with challenges, two 8 year olds, and a 5 year old. Challenging enough to feel like a good workout, but easy enough for this group. The views at the top make it all worth it!

This trail in my opinion was so much fun. Arriving at the nature center we noticed a story trail that my 10yr daughter enjoyed. Starting the hike we noticed archery targets, we walked past painted trees, a beautiful carved wooden cardinal bench, and ended up walking past the lake. Moderate elevations throughout the trail but not too strenuous for my daughter. I would recommend this trail!

Nice trail. It was pretty along the water. The other side was pretty also. You can see some back yards with tennis and basketball courts in them. The houses and yards are nice and well maintained. It wasn’t really a big deal. We’ll do the trail again in the spring when new growth starts.

We still manage to venture through the Middle Patuxent River trail even when the sign says "No Trail" beyond. Erosions, torns, and mud are present during our small hike.

I would recommend waiting a while after rainy periods if you want to walk the trails with natural surfaces. Very muddy today with standing water in spots. Asphalt trails near sports fields were well used by families and dogs. Nice park to stroll.

easy trail with just a little elevation. took just under an hour at a moderate pace.

the weather was absolutely gorgeous. there are some sections of the trail closer to the river where you have large muddy patches that require some hopping from dry spot to dry spot, but vast majority was perfect. gorgeous views along the river

Very fun trail that is perfect for the kiddos and doggos. I had an amazing time. The elevation made it nice and challenging and the trial itself was so easy to follow you wouldn’t even need this app.

A recommendation though: if you have knee issues or any strained muscles near that area, this is not going to be fun in the downhill parts :/

Easy trail. I started fm the Fairfield Inn and only planned to do 6miles in/out but really enjoyed the new scenery so did 10. Starting in Cumberland will be a gentle incline for the duration of the hike; from Frostburg it’ll be mostly downhill. Travelled by bikers, runners and other hikers. Will do again but will try for the whole 16 miles point to point.

Great spot! Parking is crowded but most people are walking on the road, not the mountain biking trail. Lots of places to explore. Great for a short ride - can’t wait to come back!

Very nice conditions.

Incessant gun fire from what must be range nearby really detracts from the experience. Feel like Fallujah is over the hill

Nice little loop with some good cardio from climbs and a bit of varied terrain! My personal opinion is that this loop, taken in its entirety, is closer to a moderate hike for the reasons I just mentioned. If you depart from the Kellogs area and do the white loop counterclockwise, you start with a decent climb on groomed trail but once you descend the back side of the mountain, it's pretty rocky, as is some of the climb back up to King & Queen. There were a decent number of people who seemed surprised by the climbs and terrain and turned around. The purple and red trails in from an upper lot are relatively flat and groomed - definitely easy.

I would rate this trail has a high easy to low moderate, only because there are a couple of steep sections that require you to pace yourself. i.e. slow crawl uphill...
It was the wknd so there were plenty of people out and about.
There is plenty of parking, and the lot was repaved over the past summer of 2018.
