About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This section is ONLY accessible after Labor Day and Before Memorial Day to reduce erosion and control useage.

From the parking lot, head down the well used trail. Follow the path (can be VERY muddy and washed out) until you intersect with Gunpowder Trail. Turn right and follow along the bank of the Gunpowder: make note that this area floods regularly and is evident by the amount of erosion and disturbed plants. Cross under the CSX Rail Bridge. This next section can be slightly difficult to navigate and we tend to end our excursion at the remnants of the old mill (look at the rocks for old eye-bolts. Notice how the “waterfall” has similar rock formations to that of Pot Rocks further upriver.

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.
