Definitely cold in the tunnel and some beautiful bats! Waterfalls on other side of tunnel were very nice. Definitely take a flash light as it was very wet and muddy with all the rain we are having.

A nice hike along the water. A few inclines but a fairly easy hike. Beautiful views at the lighthouse and inside of it.

Just rode this with my 10 year old son & he had no issues, I'd rate this as easy instead of moderate.

Nice point to point 10 mile leg for BSA Scouts

Not much of a hike but if you are visiting the park this is a fun stop and a great overlook of the Chesapeake.

Good for a walk. Wide path for most of the way. Didn’t walk the whole thing in this activity. Lots and lots of people.

Perfect paved trail, amazing for a short walk. Great for kids and/or dogs. Then when your done you can grab a snack at Whole Foods.

Nice to experience but would only recommend for walking. This was listed as a road biking destination but even with a young child this is way too abbreviated on a bike. If you are in the area it would make for a nice level stroll along the creek.

Wow, It feels like summer again. - With all the rain from yesterday I decided to stay off the hiking trails and do a bit of biking. - The paved B&A and the BWI trails were nice and dry. No mud to deal with today. - With nice weather and it being a weekend the trails were quite crowded. - Very enjoyable day. - With it getting dark earlier and the county parks closing sooner, we park the car at places like L.A. Fitness, Marley Mall and behind Bruster's Ice Cream for the B&A trail. - We park at Lindale Middle School when biking the BWI trail.

Visit here from Georgia twice a year and always walk this. It is pretty, often quiet and good for reflection!

MESSAGE ALERT TRAIL CLOSED - The Grist Mill Trail is still CLOSED. We hiked the trail to survey the damage and to see if there has been any repairs. The Pond area parking lot is still trashed with concrete and wood debris. The Grist Mill trail itself is in fine condition. No damage except for the two washed out foot bridges. This is the only reason the trail is closed. You could get trapped between the two tunnels during a heavy rain storm. Water can flow through the tunnels super fast and can be 3 feet high. One of my pictures show the washed out foot bridge area. I also have a photo that shows a stone rocky mound at the bottom of the Back side of the Nun's trail.
For some reason the GPS tracking failed in this area. Not normal.

Very nice hike in a well maintainted park!

Nice paved loop with unpaved side trails that are worth exploring. Pick up a map showing all the smaller trails at the park office. Best to park at the last lot past the athletic fields, first left and go to the end.

Today was quite a nice day with temps in the mid 40's and plenty of sun out. I chose to RIDE today instead of hiking in the woods because of the weather. It was a great day to suck up some vitamin D. This is a great loop to bike and it's always a hard workout for me. I always go downhill when looping around the farm section. If I go the other way I gotta hike the bike up the hill. The only thing I hate is all the stop and goes because of highways. Today, I rode my custom Huffy single speed geared at 44/18.

The weather people were calling for rain today so we got a early start. - This area is one of my favorites because I grew up here on a 84 acre farm. - During the 40's, there was an amusement park here and my Dad helped out as a pin-setter setting bowling pins by hand. - Much of the park area is being re-discovered. - The wife and I enjoy hiking or biking this area because it all flat. - Basically Sea level. - It's a great section to learn mountain biking because of the easy earthen trails.- Today we brought our two beagles. Great area for older dogs. - I also have 4 mile loops of this park listed under North Point State Park.

This place is a very clean and well maintained area. The location is dog friendly, stroller friendly and if you have little ones you can take the kids to the playground or the farm section to see all the animals. I generally HIKE the main loop, which is about 3 miles. The area is basically flat and paved. There is also a few natural earthen trails around the inside of the main loop. ( Save Your Money ), I recommend you parking at the Sports Complex because you don't have to pay to go in the park. For some reason A.A. County charges a fee to all parks. The wind continues to blow but the sun did warm it up a bit. I also bike the B&A trail and always cruise thru this area.

Goats, cows, and people walking dogs line the path. Perfect for a leisurely stroll on a nice Fall or Spring day.

This is a relatively flat and well-maintained paved trail that is suitable for all ages. The trail has several boardwalks that cross over multiple streams and creeks, offering beautiful views of the Chester river. Towards the Kent Narrows trailhead, the trail brings you though a dense pine tree forest that fills the air with the fresh sent of pine. My family and I have been riding this trail for many years and make it a point each season to pick up the fallen pine cones to make homemade Christmas decorations and bird feeders. Towards the Terrapin Park side of the trailhead, the trail brings you through Love Point Park where there are restrooms and water stations. This is also a great spot to give younger riders a chance to play on the swings and slides. Parking is available in Terrapin Park at this end of the trailhead, and at Kent Narrows Center towards the Kent Narrows trailhead. If you’re adventurous (and have a mountain bike), you can follow the trail though the crushed oyster shell trails in Terrapin Park, which will lead you to a spectacular view of the Chesapeake Bay and the Bay Bridge. Note that this part of the tail is not paved and not suitable for road bikes.

Well maintained, quiet, pretty, paved, and not very populated! You can continue south past the official end to Two Rivers/new community being built up for a longer route.

What an amazing trail! Even in late fall, the leaves were vibrant with color. The trail was clear with very few tree root induced bumps. Despite not stopping, the town of Hancock seemed very charming and will certainly be a destination in coming trips. There were signs along the trail welcoming bikers, and the C&O bike shop was well placed. Speaking of the C&O, the trail was visible throughout the ride, lending to a sense of wonder while imagining the barges floating past the locks. I highly recommend the WMRT trail. It has become my extended “go to” for a relaxing ride to melt away the stress of life

Normally love this trail but it’s closed right now

Great Trail! Nice Views of the Bay!

Happy Halloween. - It's 70 degrees outside and the Fall Colors are popping at Centennial Lake. - With the weather being so nice the park was super crowded with Hiker, Walker, Runners and tons of Dogs. With the puppies, we added a few of the earthen dirt trail but basically the entire park has blacktop paved trails. This was the first time we brought our two Beagles here. - They Loved It. - Being a senior, I get into ALL Federal and State Parks free. - A.A. County Parks is a different story. They charge seniors 5 dollars and others 6. ** Howard County Parks are FREE. **

Nice walk and views of the lake. The lake is the deepest lake in Maryland 340 feet deep and the bottom is 50 feet below sea level.
