I moved to Maryland two summers ago and have enjoyed Patapsco immensely. My first experience was on a 10 mile trail run that took us up hills, along a river, over bridges and along history. The scenery certainly made for a relaxing and enjoyable run among the trees. Since the first time I went I've returned to hike and bike as well. The park is always clean with the facilities kept up well making for a great afternoon out. I'd recommend Patapsco to anyone wanting a slice of Maryland without having to drive too far from DC or Baltimore.
