    Loch Raven Reservoir: Northwest Area Trails Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "A relatively unvisited—and beautiful—section of Loch Raven Reservoir, doing its best impression of Gunpowder Falls State Park’s Wildlands. You’ll find a number of trail choices all along this hike. Wide and prominent trails parallel each other along the hills. Generally, there are three options: high, middle, and water level. This hike stays fairly level and takes the middle road (a fire road), keeping the reservoir a few hundred feet to the right below.

    The scenery is beautiful immediately: sloping hills to the left, studded with mature beech trees, and an abundance of wading flows into Loch Raven Reservoir. With lots of rock, moss, and ferns, the area looks a bit more like the wild sections of Gunpowder Falls State Park than typical Loch Raven scenery. You might, however, be a bit startled by a low growling noise in the distance; this is the sound of cars going over the steel bridge on Warren Road."
