Revisiting this nearby park for a late fall short (5 flat miles) afternoon hike. . The hike is taken from "60 hikes within 60 miles-Baltimore" Another new area to explore--near Baltimore, to boot. 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. 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.

    It was definitely a great experience. Got the chance to meet new people and walking in the snow/muddy/wet areas was a unique and enjoyable experience.. Would try this meetup again....

    Another great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The surroundings were terrific and the 5 miles were a good and refreshing challenge. Hanging out for lunch was enjoyable too.

    It's a nice 1-2 hour hike depending on which loops you take. A little wet & snowy today but better than sitting at home.

    Hi again,
    If dogs are allowed, I have a friend who wants to come. What's the scoop about bringing dogs?
