The Perimeter trail is a nice, easy 2.4-mile paved path around Kinder Park. You can take side dirt paths (Wildflower, Blackberry and Greenbrier trails) to lengthen your overall walk/jog or to lessen the pounding on pavement. Take the Blackberry trail to see a nice little pond backed by a bamboo forest. Lots of deer in the park to see, as well as birds, plants, trees. Mulberries ripe right now. Well-traveled/used, especially on weekends and holidays, and must share path with bikes and many walkers with dogs (many that lunge out of curiosity and excitement and aren't well-controlled). When the Farm is open, you can stop and see cows, poultry, sheep and goats

Nice paved path

That’s ok. Awesome to see deers! Go at sunset for deer watching
Nice little white flowers

Thorn City, USA

Simple trail around the farm, 2.5mi in total took me an hour. $6 entrance fee, huge playground, farm area, and sports fields. Pretty simple trail, some trash bins scattered throughout. There are a few additional trails that were open but I didnt access. would recommend for an easy walk, walk with kids 5-7 or an older dog.

Great trails. Nice wild life and paved trails. Two great kids parks off the trails. Safe and quiet.

First time going to this park! Had a great time and nice place to walk the dog. We will be back soon!

One of my favorite trails in Anne Arundel county. Safe. Children and adults alike will love the farm animals and small museums. Great 2.4 mile wrap around pathway for walkers runners and bikers with small trails scattered throughout. You’ll see plenty of deer in the woods during cool temperatures.

Wildlife, farm animals, paved and unpaved trails, disc golf, playground- its got it all!

Understand it's nature, but the pics are deceiving. Thought this would be an enjoyable walk with the dogs. it turned out to be way too overgrown! Got to one point not far out and couldn't see the trail any longer. Shouldn't have to try to maneuver through so much brush and briers. Got lots of ticks on this trip! Very disappointing. If DNR would just clear the path a little more - machete, weed eater, etc - it would be a treasure! Disappointed to say the least.

We stayed close to the area we parked, but the trail quickly dead ended. If we had been more prepared we could've gotten wet and explored more, but mostly went there to see a different area and fish a little. Area we were in was too overgrown to relax in because of ticks jumping everywhere and no fish. We left and went to another preferred spot.

many reviews online say over grown, I disagree in the sense that this isnt a traditional state park. The trails are mostly a combination of deer/animak trails & fisherman. No upkeep from DNR. Its a very real wooded area. youre wandering in 1000+ acres of mostly undistribed woods so thorn bushes and such are normal.

a walking stick for pushing aside brush is a great thing to have.

no hunting is allowed but it does happen. DNR is aware and is working inconjuction with people like myself to track these people down. its a park where people hike, fish, take their kids & dogs. shouldnt need to worry about a stray bullet hitting you.

not taken care of and absolutely no trail. Got turned around and ended up in private hunting grounds. lol.

A lot of reviews on different trails claim that they are overgrown when they aren't in my opinion, (unless I just regularly happen to show up the day after trail maintenance crews go through); but this one really is overgrown and also full of trash. I would NOT recommend it.

A wonderful easy walk that is dog and kid friendly. We went in January, so it wasn't crowded. There are dog-waste bags and trash cans spread around the trail. The staff is very friendly. It's paved, not dirt/gravel.

Nice paved loop to walk your dogs around, I feel safe when I'm there - always just enough people around. Very clean.

I live within walking distance of this park so I might be a little partial. This is a beautiful park! And it's not just a 2.8 mile asphalt trail around the park, there is much more to it. There are several wooded trails leading off from the asphalted path. All leading back to the asphalt path. You can't get lost. There's a farm with many animals to check out. The kids will love it. There are two playgrounds and a couple of fishing ponds. The fishing ponds are catch and release. Couple of museums, visitors center and a huge sports complex. This is well worth the drive to come out and check it out. I will get several times a week.

I enjoyed the Kinder Farm Park trail. Walked it on the first warm Sunday after a long winter. Nice trails, not crowded, not entirely flat --but a fairly flat trail, wooded in areas, open in others. Nice trail for families, or a bike ride, or a run. Absolutely a convenient trail for the Annapolis-Baltimore area ... highly recommend it.

This is not a nature trail. This is walking through acres and acres of woods, not paths. Some places are so thick and overgrown that you could not get through without a machete, so you have to wander a bit - but this is what makes it enjoyable. It is nature as it is meant to be! It's fun to walk along the shoreline and there are places next to the water that are small sandy beaches and the water is very clear. It's fun to check out the animal tracks to see what has been down to the water. The deepest water I came across was about 3 feet in spots that the dogs enjoyed swimming in (the bottom was sandy). Pick a nice place to relax and if you are quiet and stay for a while you may see deer. There are many species of birds and I spotted raccoon and various bird tracks. In some parts there are also some feral cats living in colonies that buttress some of the businesses. If you like to be away from it all, and in seclusion, this spot is a gem! Will try fishing this spring and summer (lots of ticks in warm weather). Bring along a trash bag since some people evidently don't appreciate nature and leave their trash behind. Looking forward to the next excursion.

(There ARE "no hunting" signs along the perimeter of the land - so no hunting and there should not be any hunting blinds.)

I chose Nature Trips because there are no real paths. It's untouched.

A shame. This could be a nice short hike location, but there's clearly no upkeep or maintenance.

Continuing my quest to find some trail-running spots close to home, I went to check out this area this morning. Easy to find start - just park in the gravel spot just after you cross the bridge over Severn Run itself. Parking for about 3 cars - I doubt you'll ever have competition. Just back-track over the bridge and you'll see the gate to your left.

Less then a half mile in, the trail surrendered to overgrowth and became less distinct when you reach Severn Run. There are a few unclear paths through here, but they are difficult to discern. Suffice to say, it's easy to tell where people stop and turn around. I'm seriously tempted to rent a brush-cutter to go through and cut a trail.

I'll probably try exploring other starting locations to see if there are more established trails - though it seems unlikely from my research so far. It's a shame, because wildlife abounds in this area for sure. The area is very convenient to get to and has incredible solitude considering you can hear I97 howling by.

Nice short trail running away from the hubub of traffic.

The Kinder Farm Park has a nice 2.4 mile, all-paved trail that circles the park. There are also a couple of dirt and grass trails you can take to vary your route. You can also get to the East/West trail from the park which then connects to the B&A trail (perfect for bikers). My wife and I walked the trail in the evening and saw a number of deer (one fawn was only a couple of feet from us). This is a nice park for walking, running and biking. The park has a fee but you can park by the athletic fields and get onto the paved trail from there.

I love that people don't really know about this area, it was evident in the lack of trash. I was also using the 60 hikes of Baltimore book. I found a little place to park, not much room for more than two cars. I easily found the start of the trail and going out it wasn't so bad. The trails are not blazed at all. On the way back I ended up straying off the trail I had followed out. I had to bush wack back to my car. It was more annoying then anything since the area I was in was surrounded on all sides I knew I wasn't going to actually get lost. I walked out to the overgrown jeep roads mentioned in the book, which I am 99 percent sure are in the environmental area and found 3 or 4 hunting blinds in the trees, just a heads up for anyone going in the fall not expecting hunting to be happening (I didn't as the signs said no hunting.)

Great hike. Date: 6/6/2015

Unmarked, short, uninteresting, no parking. Not so much a trail as a place in the woods where teenagers go to get high and neck.

The natural setting of this trail and the peace and solitude that it provides are amazing. We found is there was all kinds of birds and deer in this kind of tranquil setting that is just so peaceful.

Walked pushing a stroller. It is wide enough to fit two next to each other. Equally shaded and not. Many dirt trails/ hiking trails led off of the paved one. Bird houses are built along the trail, very nice scenery, and low activity on this trail.
