hiking

I’ve been to Gunpowder more times than I can count but never completed the lost pond loop. The pot rocks are a must see on this hike. Make sure you bring some swimming gear for this relaxing swim spot! I mostly liked this trail as a whole. Unfortunately when you get to the point where you loop to head back (near 95) the trail is not well marked and was super over grown. I would say we spent a good 45 minutes walking through this overgrown path. My poor pup had many thorns embedded in his fur. However the views of the gunpowder are very pretty and makeup for this part! The other unfortunate part is since the pot rocks are such a popular swimming spot there is A LOT of human trash on this trail. This made me very sad as it is such a beautiful place. Please remember to pack out what you bring with you!
