I wasn't able to do the whole road because I had my bulldog with me. We paid $3 to park at North Point State Park, walked to the beginning of this trail, explored the cemetery, and went about a mile further before we turned around. Stretches have no tree cover so it gets really hot. It was a nice alternative to the trails in North Point but I will probably wait for cooler temps before I do it again.

Awesome trail.

Great trail run, views are limited during summer due to foliage.

So far one of my favorite hikes! The hike starts in the park with a gradual ascent onto the ridge of the mountain. After hiking in a few miles you will see one of the AT trail shelters, there is a spring about 3/4 of a mile down a steep descent to its location from the shelter if you need water. Continuing on the main trail you will eventually descend down some steep switchbacks that eventually hit the easy stride of the C&O canal towpath right into the historic town of Harpers Ferry. A great way to spend most of your afternoon on the legendary AT.

Ran/hiked Patapsco Granite-Woodstock today, and I have no complaints about this loop. No pics taken on this one, just cruisin' trails, although I recorded two essential waypoints where paths branch off. While it is not a super rocky course, it's level of difficulty is completed by other challenges, especially if you are trail running.

I encountered another phone death. My phone died at about two-thirds the way in. Really, I gotta stop doing this on confusing and highly-intersected trails!! This time I didn't venture off several miles by going off course, which speaks to how easy it is to navigate and follow the markings on this moderately difficult trail. Thus, my recorded track does not show that I followed the course to a "T" as depicted, which, again, was fairly easy to do despite the phone death.

This is a great 6-mile running and hiking trail, and I highly recommend it.

Well maintained and flat. There are a fair amount of tree roots for about .5 miles in the trail, but they're easy to get around. Well shaded too.

If not comfortable parking on side of road, can park at nature center and then hike a 1/2 mile to trail.
