Hashawha Loop, Hashawha Environmental Appreciation Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A fine walk through surprisingly deep woods in a county park. There are views of Pars Ridge, the principal geologic feature of Carroll County, and passages through open meadows and cultivated fields. Watch for blue herons and other waterfowl from the boardwalk across tiny Lake Hashawha.
Carroll County is not known as a hiking destination. But the quiet woods, the opportunity to see a fox or hawk hunting in a cornfield or beaver plying the stream, and the extensive variety of wildflowers in the stream bottomland all combine to make this an outing worth traveling for —especially when combined with a visit to Westminster’s Main Street or other Carroll County attractions. Special considerations: When the nature center is closed, no water is available."
