    Enjoyed the hike, until Tish and I got left behind on the way back. We did not know where to turn to get back to the trail to the parking lot and got lost. Thought the group would have waited for us at the turn. Greg, please assign a sweep in the future!

    Sorry, I can't find the place from the directions given and my GPS using the link given leads me to a residential area, so I can't be there.

      I understand - but I'll be at the one on Wednesday, and I won't bring my dog so I can go out afterwards. :-)

    Ooops! The GPS on the confirmation email is totally wrong! It directs hikers to the Gwynns Falls Trail many miles NE! Wrong Hilton Street. Use the directions above instead.

    Are the directions correct? When looking on google maps I don't see any parking lot off of Hilton.

    Isn't the shelter 245 parking lot the same as the T4 parking area in this map: http://gwynnsfallstrail.org/ima...­
