“A very easy and flat, out-and-back route on a well-maintained trail with the occasional biker.”— Vince Bottaro
Family Friendly A very flat trail with a children's playground (Acorn Hill) at Roland Lake.
The trail remains very flat and is well-maintained and nicely wooded. Lake Roland comes into view about 2/3 of the way through the route and stays in view until the end of the trail which ends near Paw Point Dog Park after crossing over the light rail tracks and ascending the steps.
Lake Roland has multiple amenities and upgrades to enjoy prior to starting the trek back, including two pavilions, a new pedestrian bridge at the dam, multiple paved paths, a children's playground (Acorn Hill) and dog park (Paw Point).
On the return journey, you may want to try a more challenging hike on the Green Trail or try the alternate Red Trail. Be aware that the Yellow Trail and Green Trail may lead to multiple other trails including the White and Orange Trail (along with unnamed trails). Hikers share this trail with the occasional biker.
More Roland Park information can be obtained at the park's website.
