Patapsco Trail Run

Let's meet and run some trails in the Patapsco Glen Artney area.

We'll start on the Soapstone trail and then incorporate portions of the Vineyard Spring and Santee Branch trails, with an optional side excursion along Bull Run. Total distance should be 5-6 mi. I plan to measure the route this weekend to double check.

There is parking along Rolling Rd, where the Soapstone trail starts. However, the lot is very popular with mountain bikers so if there isn't space available, park at the Park-n-Ride (listed as the address of the meetup) and walk over.

Afterwards we can eat nearby if people want. We've gone to pizza in Catonsville and the Fish Head Cantina in Halethorpe.

    Hey everybody, good run tonight!
    Here is route I "intended" everybody to run:
    http://connect.garmin.com/activity/334192011
    Basically the key was getting to the Vineyard and Santee Branch intersection, from there we can add miles with an out-and-back along Santee Branch.
    Also, that house across the street is in fact "1231 South Rolling Rd, Catonsville, MD". Google Maps puts the pin right on the house. Now, I hate to change the meetup address to "the lot across the street from a private residence (and include their address)" so I think that "1290 S Rolling Rd" works pretty well too.

    New to the area, had a google maps address issue that took me to the wrong place. I'll try to make it next time.

    I just had a last minute disaster at work that is preventing me from leaving until very late tonight. Sorry. The crappy thing is that I work right there.

    I'm sorry everyone - I was looking forward to meeting you all but something has come up and im going to be heading to the trail early (should be there around 5pm). Hopefully timing will work better next time!

    Could be a bit sloppy down there. We just had a big cloudburst right nearby.

    Hi there! I'm new and was hoping someone could give me a little more detail re: where soapstone starts so I know where to park? Appreciate it - thanks!

    June 26, 2013

    • Karl

      Well, Soapstone starts off S Rolling Rd, near the intersection of I195 and S Rolling Rd. There is a house across the street, and it looks like its street address is 1290 S Rolling Rd, Halethorpe, MD. That street address in Google Maps drops a pin basically at the trail start.

    • Judith

      Great - thank you! See everyone at 6....

    I've made a doctor's appointment for late in the afternoon, so I don't think I'll be able to make it from there to the run on time. See ya'll next time!
