went here last week with my sister and dog (with leash) and it was the best hike we have been on in MD so far. well-marked, differing terrain, beach (crowded), and the cliffs. gentlemen at the front of the park was very informative and friendly. beautiful, moderate hike. we went up the “side” of the cliffs because the beach was very crowded. the beach below the cliffs are closed.

flat loop but very nice walk for 2 people and leashed dog. breeze from the Bay was nice (very sunny/hot day). Beach area was pretty busy but we went for the walk. not as many bugs as the previous hike. some very muddy/flooded areas of the path were somewhat difficult to get through due to heavy rains last night but overall a great hike. can see the Bay Bridge from some of the beach access areas.

not really a loop more of a straight away into a fork (up and back). way too many biting flies kept attacking us while we were walking. very sunny, some shaded parts, and places for beach access. brought our dog on a leash.

Great trail - very quiet and easy.

I’ve hiked this trail twice in 1 week, I loved the second time just as much as the first. It’s challenging in some spots, so make sure you bring water with you. It’s fairly rocky as well. The entire loop I mapped around 4-5 miles. I figure out that if you start the loop and hit Wolf Rock, then Chimney and turn around at that point to go back to where you came from, it’s a more enjoyable experience and you skip the road noise portion! Overall great hike, I’ll be back again.

Very nice trail, was my first proper hike will likely come back for the orange trail soon. Lots of bugs be sure to bring bug spray and sun screen

Nice and easy walk up to the point where you overlook the C&O canal trail ad well as the wide Potomac river, Cool under the high tree canopy! It immediately became one of my family's favorite trails even for the picky teenagers ! Cannot recommend it more.

Great trail! Family friendly, easy!

Great easy hike, but can be a little muddy and slick in some spots. Although I was very disappointed in all the trash that was left behind.

entered through the bubbling spring Rd area.

excellent view, some traffic and people and narrow trail, but fair and easy. Stunning view. Wish it was bigger though to walk around at the summit.

I started at the loop and ran into the quary. it was a peaceful hike I had on my hiking boot so my feet did not get wet at the muddy parts. Im going to do this trail again very soon. Parking was weird I ended up parking near a cemetery.

A very doable 2.5 mile trail leads to the best view that I have experienced in MD. Absolutely outstanding trail all the way around. The only caveat is that there is a turn off from the AT onto the blue trail that leads to the Rocks overlook. It is not a well-marked turn.

I would recommend this trail, but it’s best to go early because some of the paths are narrow. The second waterfall is pretty hard to miss because you walk through it to stay on the trail.

Road noise, sirens, fuel smells and junkyard trash made this trail not enjoyable. As a woman alone, I didn’t feel safe.

This is for the Orange trail which doesn’t appear to be on all trails. It was too muddy for us to go real far but the river and overlook were awesome.

Excellent!! Was able to do it with children ages 5-14

Very nice trail with some great rolling hills. Saw a couple trail runners and that’s about it. Great for a hot day, cools off immediately when you get into the woods. Look out for the thorns on the overgrown area.

Beautiful trail, good for a run. However it was very easy to get off the trail as other reviews have said but there are still trails that you stay on, it just makes for a longer run than you may have expected.
