I do this section of the Patapsco Valley State Park only when most of the trails are wet from rainstorms the night before. I always wait one day for the trails to dry out. This loop is All Paved in Blacktop. Easy hike and it's mainly all Flat with rolling hills. The complete section is mainly in the Shade. There are only one spot in the Sun and that's down by the Playground.

First Time Here - This trail kicked this Seniors butt. Park doesn't open until 9AM. so it was already getting hot out. Very rocky & steep, Muddy because it poured the night before. There were a few steps and even one or two switchbacks.Trails are not marked very well by the tunnel area. The only flat spot was when I was standing at the stream were the Union dam use to be or on the train tracks when I totally couldn't find the connecting trails that were Overgrown. I would still recommend this loop and the added 1.5 miles around the campground as a great winter trek but today I fried on the hike back up the campground road. No shade there.

Nice overlook by the kayak rental area. East side of park generally crowded with strollers, dog walkers and dog droppings. West side of trail very wooded and quieter. Many unpaved trails that are worth exploring.

Moderate? It was flat and paved and posed no difficulty. I wouldn't call this a trail. More like a paved suburban path.
