The reservoir trails are open from sunrise to sunset. The main trail is primarily used by bikers, but the protected environment area trails are strictly prohibited to bikes.

Description

This trail is part of Loch Raven Reservoir in Baltimore County. There is a short trail located at Seminary Avenue and Dulaney Valley Road that runs along Seminary and has a parking area. When it ends, you have to go about 25 feet up the same side of the road to the official trailhead on your left.

The trail parallels Seminary Road before climbing up towards the reservoir. All along the trail, there are hiking-only branch trails that go along the water. Most hikers and runners stick to these, while this fire road is primarily used by mountain bikers.

The trail is generally rolling hilly terrain. Some hills are steep with loose rocks and large roots. There are a few small stream crossings. The trail is very well-marked with white blazes, arrows and signs.
