Saturday Morning at Gunpowder Falls: Sweet Air Area

An amazing amount of variety in a relatively short hike—the scenery changes every mile or so. It’s almost a crime that this exceedingly beautiful 1,250-acre section of Gunpowder Falls State Park is so lightly used—but what a treat that is for hikers seeking solitude! The bulk of traffic in the Sweet Air section comes from equestrians.
