Beautiful park close to Baltimore

Get away from the city in this pretty river side park not far from Baltimore. Easy parking on the east side of the road, then the trailhead access is on the west side, and there is a tunnel under Belair Rd./Highway 1 to get there. Easy walk through the woods.
Wish We Had More Time

We were just basically driving by in search of a nearby Covered Bridge. It was a gorgeous summer afternoon, lots of people (mostly families) were enjoying the day in the picnic area by the visitor's center, so we were fortunate to get some good information. The visitor's center was closed, but we were still able to pick up a map and drive around a bit. We plan on coming back for one of the festivities they do on the weekends. They had a museum, if you will opened across the street from the welcome center. It was great to see history so well preserved. If we were nearby residents, for sure we'd be frequent visitors. It's free, it was clean and so much to do.
It closed to early

We went there to see the waterfall. There was no map to show us which way to see the waterfall, and the office closed at 4pm on Sunday. We tried to find the waterfall which show in their picture but end up we gave up. Such a waste time. There should be map or at least something to show us where the waterfall is.

Stay on the Appalachian trail or venture off onto one of the other marked areas. The scenery is beautiful year round. The landscape allows you to take long or short hikes of varying difficulty and there are rest facilities available.

Great for hiking. Probably one of my favorite State Parks. Lots of scenery and lots of fun. Some of the trails can be a little treacherous though, so be prepared.
