We enjoyed our hike in the woods but we weren't sure we were on the correct trail to do a loop. We went out and back- overall 3 miles but it led us back to Irishtown road. The trails could have been marked better, but the overlook was beautiful. We definitely will be back to continue the trails here!
My son and I do this loop with our dog quite often in winter months as they do not allow hunting near this trail. Be careful because in the fall and winter it is easy to lose the trail as the leaves falling cover it up. Never seems to be much traffic in the winter and there are a couple of areas that are pretty steep to navigate with the leaves on the trail. It is marked well but needs a little tending to alert hikers of where the trail is. Overall, we love this loop and the peacefulness that comes with hiking here.
Easy walk and great views along the way, parking is an issue. Not enough parking and everyone parking illegally got a ticket, better get there early. Very nice spot out at the lighthouse, very peaceful until the drone Air Force showed up. Noisy little buggers. MD Park Service should not allow.
Was a great trail to take. Worth the 40 minutes it took (most of us) to get there. Went with a group of 7. there was parking at the building with white roof that you can see on google maps. We did this trail in the winter (january) so the thick foliage was gone, revealing a great trail. Half of the trail was gravel/dirt road, but still nice to see. Only other concern is that we saw at least 5 hunters on/around the trail this morning, so just plan for that a well. Some of the trailed seemed like it would be hard to find once all the foliage returns. Lastly, the park map doesn't show the last portion of the trail to return the parking lot, but there is an improved trail; so it was easy get back to our vehicles. Again, a great trail, glad we found it here.
