Went to Gunpowder Falls for a day trip. The hiking was awesome! The trail is not difficult and very pretty to walk on. We were able to find the swimming hole and stopped for about two hours to eat and go for a swim, which was a rare treat. A great place to go for a hike!

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.

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... More

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.
