Gunpowder: Panther Branch Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trail is wild and wonderful! It combines the Panther Branch Trail with the Gunpowder South Trail for a scenic loop complete with wildlife, waterfalls, old ruins, and river views. Living up to its name, you could say that this Panther Branch hike is where the wild things are. The trail has much to offer, from wildlife and waterfalls to creek crossings and river views.

It’s topped off with a beautiful start and finish in a large grassy meadow along the river, a popular spot for picnickers and sunbathers. This combo of the Panther Branch and Gunpowder South Trail is a real winner. To reach the trailhead, walk down ten steps from the parking area to cross a grassy green meadow and a creek to reach the panther branch sign, heading to the right."

This is a great trail. Has a bit of everything and gives a good workout. Along the river the trail is eroding so it is a good idea to pay attention where your feet land or you might end up in the river.
