The trail we will be walking is about 2 to 3 miles through a wood-chip and leaf covered covered path. The trails are wide and well-marked, and consist of several loops throughout the park. WE WILL most likely DO THE RED TRAIL. There are some elevation changes, but nothing too challenging. Some sections of the trails are a little bit rocky (small rocks), but my Scotties do fine on them. You might need to pick up and carry a small dog if they don't want to walk over the rocks.

Info from Howard County about these trails:
(website says a trail map is coming soon)
I recommend sturdy sneakers or hiking boots or trail shoes. If your dog likes to take a dip in the river, there are many places where they can get wet!!!
Bring water for you and your dog and waste pickup bags.

If you're coming from Savage-Guilford Road, it is a little parking lot on your Left. If you are coming from Murray Hill Road it is a little parking lot on your right.
