About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Short and sweet this is a summertime family favorite.

Start this hike by walking down to the car bridge you used to park your car. Turn LEFT to go to the Minebank Trail. You’ll be walking this trail passing by the newly renovated Lime Kilns, and don’t forget to check out both amphibian ponds. In between is a MASSIVE Sycamore and we love to see how big the leaves are to our own heads during the Fall.

On the way back there are a few places you can venture down to the Minebank Creek itself. Use caution, especially post rain events but enjoy looking for crayfish and other aquatic species!

This trail can have a few epic puddles for kid size jumps.

There is also a lot of poison ivy in the section where the massive Sycamore is.

Hey! I started as a BA in 2016 because I was looking for ways to not only connect with other outdoor fanatics but to also find a way to encourage new parents and caretakers the courage and support to find ways to get outside. There is no greater joy than watching a child come alive outside! I am happy to help you find the best- for you- Trails, Parks and Epic Play areas in and around Maryland….and add some fun facts in the mix.
