Gunpowder Lost Pond Trail

Gunpowder: Lost Pond Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The pond truly is lost, but other highlights like views of the Gunpowder River, the Pot Rocks rapids, and large boulders, can all be seen on the floodplain before heading upward into the forest. The location of this hike, just off of Belair Road, makes it an easy trail to access for a quick outdoor fix.

People driving cars up and down the busy Route 1 corridor on Belair Road have no clue that the peaceful and scenic Lost Pond Trail lies just off in the distance, transporting hikers like us a world away from that rat race only steps away. Lost Pond Trail is just one of several trails that begin from this parking area on Belair Road."

I enjoy the wildlands trail on the west side of Route 1. The trail to the east is more crowded but the entire park is very popular. With that given, it is big enough to allow a hiker to follow lovely secluded sections in forests. Following the white trail on the north side will bring you to a great swimming hole about a mile down. The trail ends but you can follow foot paths to it.
