Trail shared by Craig Pool

A classic trail that has been in Patapsco for ever. It's a long climb, or fun downhill.

Park Closes at dark. Don't ride the mud. This trail can get wet during the spring months, so you may need to avoid it then.

Description

This trail is approximately 1 mile long and can be a leg burner if going up, or a hand-cramper going down. This is one of the only trails clearly marked in the park - both the top and bottom have a large sign indicating the trailhead.

When entering at the top, you have slightly technical root section followed by a skinny line on a hillside through a field. After this, the trail has very few turns, and when it does turn, it's only slight. The end is also pretty cool - you'll come to a stream which runs under a train aqueduct/tunnel. Cross the stream and go through the tunnel, popping out on the Grist Mill Trail.

If you are going down, please take care to look for your fellow riders and hikers as you'll want to continually push your speed. Please keep yourself under control, as this trail is also a popular route in the other direction.

On the Catonsville side of the park, this would be considered the easiest climb back from the river. While long, the grade is not as tough as the other trails.

This trail is truly an up or a down. There are very few sections which will be opposite of that.
