Trail shared by Ken Lohr

Scenic, flat, old railroad bed with nice views of the Patapsco river and rock outcroppings.

Features -none-

Family Friendly Flat, doubletrack, and easily accessible for an out-and-back family hike or bike.

Description

An old crushed gravel and dirt railroad bed that is used by area hikers, runners, bikers, and dog walkers. Several nice views along the way. Most of the trail spurs lead to the nearby neighborhoods just up the hill from the Patapsco river valley. This one showcases some easy hiking.
