About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

In under 1.5 miles round trip, this hike is perfect for young children. There is nominal elevation change, and it ends at the waters of Liberty Reservoir.
Park along Deer Park Rd along the shoulder/lot. Heed all signs!
Enter into the woods on the south side of the road.
Follow down hill, you’ll go straight at the first intersection (0.2 miles). It levels off a bit here and there can be some muddy spots. At the next intersection (more of a fork at 0.4 miles), take the trail to the left. Follow this downhill and when you reach a cluster of pines and the path flattens out you’re at Liberty Reservoir (0.7 miles). Retrace your steps to return.

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.
