Description

This trail is a conglomeration of horse trails and fire service roads in northwest Baltimore County. The trail is a mix of singletrack and Old Fire Service Rd, and the only signage was at the trailhead in the parking area off of Gunpowder Rd. The main service road does an out and back with a lollipop loop. This main route connects to several other singletrack options and short out-and-back spur trails. If you start at the trailhead and take the singletrack to the north, you are able to make 2 loops out of this trail. Some of the trails dead end into the surrounding farm land (used for access for horses). The trail is a mixture of single/doubletrack with roots, rocks, and some short steep climbs.
