A located in Harford County. This area, rich in history, had a gun shop that supplied muskets during the early part of the Revolutionary War. Military reenactments sometimes take place here. The calm continues as you head into the woods for a nature hike. You’ll find the trailhead in the meadow to the left and behind the Jerusalem Blacksmith Shop. Look for the white blaze on the tree, just before leaving the grassy meadow
and stepping on the natural trail surface. You’ll be following the white-blazed trail for the first half of the loop and returning on the blue-blazed trail."
