A quick and easy jaunt will lead you to the edge of the Loch Raven Reservoir, which supplies water for Baltimore City and most of Baltimore County. This trail is not heavily used and is often overgrown with tall grass. But it affords you a nice view and some solitude. Is this a trail off the beaten path or on the beaten path? It’s both, really. It’s definitely a path less traveled, hence the solitude. But it is literally a beaten path as you follow a trail of beaten grass for a good portion. It’s not terribly well maintained, but this trail to the water is a quick fix when you are looking for some peace and quiet with the reward of a nice view. Long pants are recommended due to high grass. You’ll recognize the trailhead by the orange line strung across the path.
