HIKE starting at The Swinging Bridge

Meet on the grass by PARKING LOT PAST THE SWINGING BRIDGE.  We can decide how long we want to walk.

On weekends, the Patapsco State Park entrance fee is $3 per person. Or $75 seasonal per car, good for all state parks.

Directions once you enter the park

The address (5120 South Street, Baltimore, MD 21227) gets you to the park entrance. After turning in the park entrance, please pay the $3 entrance fee at the booth. Continue straight ahead (for about 1.5 miles) and when you reach the intersection, take a left (there is not an option to go forward, you can only turn left or right). Follow the road TWO MILES to the  parking lot at the end of the road past the swinging bridge . Call me with any questions[masked] Rachel Swift.


You might get muddy on the trails, so dress accordingly.

      It looks like Rachel plans to discuss how far/much time we will be hiking when we meet. The nice thing about this area of Patapsco is we can design a hike to accommodate a variety of needs such as a hike with bailout options for people who only want to hike 2 or 4 miles while other people can hike longer. I probably will hike at most 5 miles because I will want to get back home to watch the Ravens game.

    Wish I didn't have to miss - need to go to NC to visit my dad in the hospital. Gaby will be coming along with me :)

      Janet, Sorry to hear about your Dad. You and Gaby take care and we'll see you on another hike.

    Count me in! If it's ok, I'm also bringing my dog.

      Hi Carol, That is exactly what this group is about: hiking with your dog so bring your dog.
