This is a new hike for this group, I have been asking about it and there it was in the book all the time. We will be hiking along side the Gunpowder River and then ascend to the rail bed of the old MD. PA Railway. This is a 4.5 mile loop.
Take 1-695 to Exit 31, Harford Road northwest. Go 8 miles to a left on Fork Road. Go 2.5 miles to a hard right on Pleasantville Road. Go 1 mile and cross the bridge over the Gunpowder to a
small parking area immediately on the right. The trail heads downhill toward the river from the parking area.
There is a small parking area here. If we have a large group we can park additional cars on Bottom Rd. To get to Bottom Road take 1-695 to Exit 31, Harford Road northwest. Go 8 miles to a left on Fork Road, then go 1.6 miles to a right on Bottom Road. Go 2 miles to the parking spots near the river.
