McKeldin Area of Patapsco Valley State Park

We will hike about 4 - 6 miles.  I did the hike as a five miler on Friday, but we can do it as a four miler if you prefer.

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

You might get muddy on the trails, so dress accordingly. If you have hiking boots or trail shoes, wear them because we will be hiking on packed dirt and rocky trails.


There is a toll booth at the park entrance and a fee to enter the park.  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.


The hike host is Janet Ameen-Lee: [masked]


The physical address below will take you to the park entrance. Please enter the park and pay at the collection booth. We will meet at the FIRST parking lot you encounter after passing the park entrance toll booth.

Physical Address for the Park:
11676 Marriotsville Rd
Marriottsville, MD 21104

      Kim, we missed you, Violet, Drizzit & your +1! I should have checked the map on MeetUp to see that it went to the wrong place, and provided directions myself to the attendees. We did wait til 10:47, and hope you had fun there :)

    We had so much fun meeting Fizzgig, Shadow, & Rogue and their humans, and hiking again with Dutchess, Maui & Lily with their humans! Awesome weather and companionship. It was really fun to sun ourselves on the rock face like lizards :) So sorry we missed out on meeting up with Violet & Drizzit and their humans, but we'll see you soon. Thanks everyone for turning out!

      Lily's little out of shape butt was so happy to reach the top of that one tough incline that she was bouncing straight up in the air like popcorn lol. Meanwhile Gaby and Dutchess ran up and down it twice like it was nothing!
