Description

The Santee Branch is a long winding trail that connects the Hilton Area of PVSP to the Glen Artney Area as well as several other trails along the way. The path roughly follows the Patapsco southeast all the way from the Sawmill Branch Trail to the Soapstone Trail. This trail pairs well with several others in the area, with numerous trails branching off the Santee and leading down to the Patapsco river and the popular Grist Mill Trail. The path crosses several streams of various sizes and there are some moderate slopes at times as the trail follows the valley ridge. There are several re-routes through this trail so be sure to follow the white blazes at intersections.
