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.

I think it's only $2 per car on the off season? On weekends in the summer 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 or Wayne Martin at[masked]-1789.

We will hike about 4miles maybe. 

Typically we are finish by 12:30-1pm.

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

    Such a great hike, Wayne! Thank you for taking us on all those fanny burners :) Another good time with great dog friends. Excellent to meet your sweet daughter, Marissa, and Maui the new addition to the family, Andrew. Thank you for finding my glove. Thanks for bringing them along. Best wishes for Driz to do ok with his vaccinations!

    Since my car needs a new accessory belt, I probably will be fixing it in the morning. Sad to miss this hike, but will be there another time.

    I'm looking forward to our hike. If you have hiking boots or trail shoes, wear them. If everyone is up for it, I think it would be fun to do a hike similar to what we did last week which would be 5 - 6 miles long on mostly dirt trails. I'm thinking that maybe we could explore the opposite bank of the Patapso River passing by the Ilchester Overlook, Hilton Area campground then finally coming down the Vineyard Spring Trail and passing Rachel's "secret" swimming hole.
