Make a loop in a section of Patapsco Valley State Park on trails that take you over tough, but rewarding, terrain. Many developed areas inside Patapsco Valley State Park provide amenities for family outings, camping, and picnics, but the state park also offers huge tracts where you’re on your own. Since the area for this hike runs through unmaintained areas of the state park, it promises solitude and a vigorous walk. Be aware that you will come to places where the trail seems to disappear, but I assure you that you can get through the entire hike described below.
