Robert E. Lee Park Professional Review and Guide
"Follow the red Rail Trail (aka the main trail), which parallels the Jones Falls before crossing the Lake Roland Dam and hooking up to a trail around Lake Roland that passes by arguably the best view in the park. Along the way you’ll enjoy rare species of wildlife, railroad history, and exceptional scenery located just minutes from the Baltimore city line.This park has come a long way, baby, and Robert E. Lee just keeps getting better and better! After much neglect the 453-acre park fell into disrepair and closed to the public. It reopened in 2011, after being leased to Baltimore County, which gave it a major overhaul. The land area encompassing Robert E. Lee Park was originally part of late-seventeenth- and early-eighteenth-century land grants from Lord Baltimore to a number of Maryland families. It’s now a sanctuary for outdoors lovers that’s close to the city."
