Description

Climb a short access trail to the historic Ma and Pa railroad rail-bed. Continue on the Standard Gauge line or use the narrow gauge track to the end of the rail-bed where the trail drops to the river bank on sweet singletrack to Pleasantville Rd. Cross the Little Gunpowder Falls using the road bridge, hop the guardrail and enter the trailhead for the white-blazed Little Gunpowder Trail to return to Bottom Rd.
