Gunpowder: Highland Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A short loop hike that provides access to one of the best, if not the best, sections of the Gunpowder River with pools, rapids, and chutes. It’s always nice when you can mix up the scenery rather than having to retrace your steps. By combining the Highland Trail with the Gunpowder South Trail, we can do just that, all while giving you access to a fantastic stretch of river!
This loop hike begins at the green iron Howard B. Mays Bridge (1898) on Masemore Road on the opposite side of the road from the parking lot. Do not cross the iron bridge. Follow signs for the Lefty Kreh Fishing Trail blazed in white (this is also the Gunpowder South Trail). A large rock sits in grass alongside the water and edge of the parking lot."
