Kevin will lead a hike between 3.5 miles and 6-7 miles. If you prefer you can make it an Easy 3.5 miles by turning around at the railroad tracks : depending on interest and trail conditions for the longer hike. The parking lot is very small so it is suggested that you carpool.or park on the side of the road close to the parking lot... a meeting place for those coming from the north would be Security Square Mall.
Directions: Take I 695 to Exit 117, Security Boulevard West. Go past the mall and turn onto Fairbrook Road (just past the Sunoco Station) and look for Johnnycake Road on the left. Follow Johnnycake to the end. Take a right onto Hollofield Rd. Take a left onto Dogwood Road an immediate left into the parking area off of Alberton Road. The address above is the park headquarters - DO NOT USE THAT ADDRESS FOR GPS.
This is an easy out and back hike along the Patapsco River with many historical ruins along the way. Shaded, NO FACILITIES. Dogs welcome.
