easy mostly flat paths .. well marked. natural center open from 9am-430pm daily.

Great trail. I took the red out to the cliffs (they say walking out where the cliffs are is off limits this time of year, but I took that more as a suggestion). Red trail is nice and easy hike offering great water views.

After leaving the cliffs I took the orange trail. It’s also nice and heavily wooded with good inclines. Note, some parts are muddy; you can get through them but I recommend hiking shoes over sneakers for better footing.

Note, towards the end, the map shows that the orange trail continues towards the left of the service road that leads to the parking lot. But really it’s the service road that takes you back.

I’d definitely do this trail again. I went early so it wasn’t crowded.

Nice ride, but can be crowded.

Nice easy trail. Like the open and shade it offers. Can get busy in the spring with bikes.

Great trail. Loved the half frozen Cascade Falls. Took lots of nice pictures along the way. Look forward to going again.

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

Nice walk

Great temperatures over the weekend. I also finally took down my Xmas lights. I hiked up to the Bloede dam first to see the progress on the dam removal then looped back. River road trail had a lot of ice on it in spots. I then went up to the Cascade Falls. The Park was crowded due to the weather being warmer. Many people were hiking up to the Falls and the falls were frozen over. You could walk on all the ice at the Falls but the earthen trails were very muddy due to the ground thawing out.

I do this walk every day on the way to work. It is very pleasant. In the early hours and on colder days it is not too crowded, but once the weather warms up and schools let out it is another story with a combination of locals, tourists, and history buffs. If you are looking for some interesting history there are signs along the way with factoids. On nice weekends there will be various street performers in the main inmer harbor area. I would say this is a must see if you are in Baltimore looking for something easy, historical, but outdoors.

Nice area around the lake and for most of the trail. Paved the entire way. Little bit sketchier as you get past the post office section.

Closed Sundays :(

Went yesterday with my two kids. The frozen waterfall was a sight to see! Very muddy and Rocky as it was a 55 degree day after a month of very cold temps. Crossing some of the water was a little dicey. Bit it was beautiful and I look forward to taking them back in the spring!

This hike took about an hour and was easy. It was nice since it has lots of trees; it is a cool path as you cross the creek several times.

very muddy today , otherwise it was a wonderful hike !

Beautiful view, steep uphill the whole way

bushwhacked for a bit somehow think i was on an animal trail tbh. decent views of the reservoir. boring hike nonetheless

We took a 12 year old, a 6 year old, and a 4 year old. The trails were slick and even icy in some spots but the kids had a blast.

Dog Shit Trail is the new name, very disappointed! Great weather brings out the best in Fido’s friend. Dog waste every where on the trail! Wake up America!
