Revisiting this nearby park for a late fall short (5 flat miles)morning/ hike. . The hike is taken from "60 hikes within 60 miles-Baltimore" . This is a ~5 mi easy/moderate loop hike, along the Middle Branch of the Patunxet River. Hiking time ~ 1.5 hrs, with multiple lunch oppurtunities nearby. See, I can do flat and local hikes, too! Directions 695 to I70 W to MD-29 South then onto rte 108 west towards Clarksville Go 5 mi, then turn Left onto Trotter Rd; go 1/2 mi to a gravel parking lot on the left. We'll meet there at 11, and depart for the hike shortly thereafter. A short hike, but an easy and easily accesible one. Lunch afterwards is always a (definite) option. Last time we were here, we descended upon a pretty good Mexican place in Clarksville. There are no river crossings, aspreviously mentioned; howeevr, the ground WILL be wet and boggy. Wear boots. Waterproof/waterresitant boots are recommended. Fido, as long as he/she is leashed, and wll behaved (towards people and other dogs) is welcome. Keep in mind the temperature/ humidity when deciding whether or not to bring your pet.
I'll be there with theusualy grey Mazda (look for the yakracks), and possibly the usual -dogs (unless the weather is predicted to be hot) ., My cell is[masked] 7280.
