This hike is an all-day event in the Hereford area. It offers a grand tour of the Gunpowder River’s south and north banks, with highlights like Prettyboy Dam and Raven Rock Falls along varied terrain, from mild river walks and rock scrambles to sloped hillsides. An all-day outing, this nearly 14-mile clockwise loop with a spur to Prettyboy Dam passes through dense forest and across floodplains, walking Anarrow ledges, hopping rocks, crossing numerous creeks, and traversing steep side hills. Here’s the plan: Start at a midpoint in the river on the south side. Walk upriver, heading east, all the way up to the dam before crossing over to the north side of the river. Follow the north side of the river all the way downstream to Big Falls Road.
