Prettyboy Reservoir: CCC Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Expect some solitude on this simple walk in the woods with sneak peeks of the Prettyboy Reservoir. The return trip includes a spur trail that ends at a scenic spot where you can take a load off and take in the waterfront view.

If you are looking for solitude in a very rural setting, Prettyboy CCC trail should do the trick. It’s located in the far northwest corner of Baltimore County and is not terribly well-known. The trail follows a wide fire road path until it loops. On the return you’ll take a spur to a great spot over-looking the water, perfect for picnicking and fishing. Swimming, wading, and camping are not permitted, and boats are allowed by permit only. The trail out and the loop are not overwhelmingly scenic; the draw is the rather thick forest, the wildlife, and the peace and quiet. The highlight is on the spur trail on the return trip. If you choose, you can skip the loop portion altogether and head straight to the trail that meets the water’s edge."
