Hiking

Great Hike! Beautiful view. The entire hike is shaded. We started at east view. The first 2 miles were fairly easy. The last .5 mile was all uphill and then back down. It was pretty steep both ways. But the views were amazing. If you start at west view, the first .5 mile will be strenuous and then it’ll be easy after that.

I hiked this trail with my dog. It was breeze for her, moderate for me, lol. Slight slopes and narrow pathways; it was fun! There’s spots all around the trail to get a view of the lake.

Previously took the red trail with the fam, this time we went green. The trail transitions nicely from paved to natural with a proper amount of rocks and roots to make it feel like a real hike. We had only planned on walking but , once we found a nice path to the river bed, it was game over. The spot we found consisted of stone and sand and plenty of rocks sit. We ended up lounging for hours in the river and plan on going back next week. Very lightly travelled, and plenty of space to give 6ft distance for passersby to be perfectly compliant with new COVID measures.

Great wide trail, 90% in shade with lots of little stream crossings to make the puppy happy!

Running

Lovely trails, well kept, very hilly and rocky/rooty in parts so a good workout but always VERY crowded. No one respects social distancing. Walkers don’t move for runners even on very narrow parts of the trails and people don’t keep their dogs on leashes.

A great trail for all levels! Took our 8-year-old and 2-year-old with us, and although we went a slow pace, it was an easy hike for all. Only saw one other small family the entire time. The view and the water are beautiful at the end!

No a bad trail. Good for dogs and humans. It was very hot today but still enjoyed the Red loop trail.

Trail was nice. But the directions took us to an industrial park...

HikingMuddy

Nice trail, mostly in the woods and shady except for the meadow where the info sign is. Beautiful creeks and crossings. The overlook isn’t anything special and the end of the trail is quite a climb. The trail actually is called Baldwin Barran and extends a little farther on the other side of the creek if you want to make it longer.

Walking

Explored both ends before crossing the bridge. Over the bridge walking straight is the best path.

Too much next to ball parks and roads to feel fully wilderness.

Great trail, understandably crowded. More rocks than I remembered on the lower sections. The summit is a legit climb and crowded at the top. Great view.

Hiking

Very easy, peaceful trail. I gave 5 stars because other than the parking lot, we didn't see a soul. We jumped from brown to green to red to purple and back to red trails. The brown trail was wooden planks over wetlands and was the most interesting of the trails. Lots of blue tailed skinks. Frogs and song birds.. We did see a couple of osprey. The rest of the hike was through woodlands

One of my favorite hikes in Howard County- it feels serene, protected, and secluded. Rarely crowded. Peaceful streams and rivers amongst trees, and several lovely meadows with flowering plants and plenty of pollinators. Some parts can feel overgrown by late summer as trails aren’t as actively traveled.
